As basketball fans turned their attention to the 2022 NBA draft on ESPN Thursday night, a current UNC standout has his motivation for the future of his career.

During the draft, guard Caleb Love tweeted out “2023″ with an emoji signaling that he’s got his eyes set on next year’s NBA draft. Love opted to return to UNC for his junior season rather than test the 2022 NBA draft where he probably would have gone late second round or potentially undrafted. 

By returning for another season, Love has the chance to improve and up his stock for that 2023 NBA draft and hopefully landing with a first-round projection.

Love did make improvements from his first season in Chapel Hill to his sophomore year. He shot 37.1 percent from the field and 36 percent from the three-point line while averaging 15.9 points per game.

Let’s hope Love gets even better in his junior season.
