From the Professional Sports blog:
....Asked which of the North Carolina players in last month's NBA Draft he liked the most, Kupchak said he was particularly high on shooting guard Wayne Ellington.
In fact, had Ellington slipped to them at the 29th pick, the Lakers had contingencies in place where they could have nullified their trade with the Knicks for the pick or acquired a second-rounder a few picks later to nab him. Ellington instead went 28th to Minnesota.
"We thought would be a good pick late in the draft," said Kupchak, a North Carolina alum. "I think of all the (North Carolina) players, the one player that has an NBA position is Wayne Ellington because he's a true off guard."
