  • Hairston didn't play last season for North Carolina after a long list of issues, but his pure scoring and shooting ability puts him in the mix for the first round. -- Jeff Borzello
  • One of the best shooters in the draft, has deep range on his jumper, NBA-ready body and build, experience playing in the D-League, can guard multiple positions.
  • Not a great passer or ball-handler, lacks a consistent mid-range and off-the-dribble game, doesn't create own shot very often.
Mock Draft
  • Round: 1    Pick: 17

    Matt Moore's Analysis:

    Hairston was projected as first-rounder before his suspension. Regardless of what happened at Carolina, he's worth a shot.

  • Round: 1    Pick: 21

    Gary Parrish's Analysis:

    Hairston is a lottery talent who might slip because of off-the-court issues that ended his college career prematurely. Memphis could get nice value here -- not to mention a great shooter with good size for his position. (Previous: 44)

  • Round: 2    Pick: 8

    Zach Harper's Analysis:

    His baggage from the past could keep Hairston out of the first round but it won't keep Hinkie from adding a potentially dynamic scorer to his backcourt rotation. (Previous: 41)
