The Skinny: 

P.J. Hairston spent this past year in the NBA’s D-League system after some controversy throughout this past summer and early fall while still with North Carolina. An NCAA investigation later, Hairston was forced to leave UNC and either train on his own or join the NBA’s minor league system before entering the 2014 NBA Draft. He chose the latter and had great success along the way. He was fourth in the league in scoring this past season and started to shed some light on the D-League vs. NCAA debate. Now he’s placed into the draft and will look to make a statement along the way.
