Posted July 11, 2013
Former North Carolina guard Reggie Bullock has signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. Bullock was drafted by the Clippers with the 25th overall pick in the first round of this year's NBA draft.
He averaged 13.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 steals in 35 games at UNC last season.
Former NC State forward J.J. Hickson signed a three-year deal with the Denver Nuggets Thursday. The 24-year-old spent last season in Portland where he averaged 12.7 points and a career-high 10.4 rebounds. He joined Dwight Howard as the only players to average 12 points, 10 boards and shoot at least 55 percent from the field.
After one season at NC State, Hickson was drafted 19th overall by the Cavaliers in 2008. The forward averaged 9.8 points and 6.8 rebounds in five NBA seasons with stops in Cleveland, Sacramento and Portland.
