Former UNC basketball forward Brady Manek spent just one season with the Tar Heels but it was a memorable one. Now, Manek is hoping to continue his professional career as the 2022 NBA draft looms here in June.

After working out at the G-League combine, Manek has earned a few workouts with NBA teams. Earlier this week, Manek worked out with the New Orleans Pelicans and now today, he’s in Atlanta working out for the Hawks.

As of now, Manek has just the two workouts but with the draft a few weeks away, more are likely on the horizon for the forward.

In his lone season with UNC, Manek averaged 15.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.8 assists while shooting 49.3 percent from the field. He 40.3 percent from the three-point line.

While Manek is projected to go undrafted right now, these workouts could help him sneak late into the second round. That is if he can showcase that shooting ability to scouts and coaches.
