North Carolina junior forward Reggie Bullock has decided to enter the 2013 NBA draft, a source told Yahoo! Sports on Monday night.
A formal university announcement is expected as soon as Tuesday.
Bullock, 22, has gone back and forth on his decision, but ultimately decided in the past 48 hours to make the move into the pros. North Carolina coaches tried to convince Bullock to remain for his senior year and improve his draft status, but Bullock, a 6-foot-7 small forward, made the choice to leave now.
Bullock is considered a late-first to early second-round draft pick, league executives tell Yahoo! Sports. For North Carolina, Bullock averaged 13.9 points on 48 percent shooting as a junior.
