North Carolina's Justin Jackson, Kennedy Meeks To Test NBA Draft Process

Two of North Carolina's underclassmen have decided to test the NBA Draft process. 

Tar Heels' swingman Justin Jackson and forward Kennedy Meeks have decided to put their names in the NBA Draft, but won't be hiring agents, so they'll be eligible to return to school if they opt out after the NBA Combine in May. 

Here's North Carolina's release. 

">April 22, 2016

Jackson, a 6-foot-8, 193-pound sophomore, averaged 12.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game in 2015-16. 

Meeks, a 6-foot-9, 265-pound junior, averaged 9.2 points and 5.9 rebounds a game this past season. 

The NBA Combine is set to take place from May 11-15. May 25 is the deadline to withdraw your name from the draft.
