Brady Mannick certainly seems to be enjoying himself in North Carolina: After a very good “big” season in the NCAA with the North Carolina Tar Heels, the strong winger will be trying to earn his spot with the Hornets in the NBA in the coming days.
Not drafted this year, he’s already joined Charlotte’s summer team, along with Duke’s Mark Williams, who was beaten by Tar Heel in Final Four and picked by Michael Jordan for 15th, but also Lingello Ball, or Kay Jones and J. T-Thor, enlisted last year.
As a reminder, Brady Mannick joined North Carolina through “Gateway Transfer” in the spring of 2021, after four seasons at the University of Oklahoma. In a runaway inside role highly complementary to Armando Bacot’s pivot, he was a hit, averaging 15.1 points per game, with a 40.3% success rate at 3 points, with over six attempts per game.
” I can still do a better job shooting. He said what he hopes to show in the summer league. ” And then, I want to advance as a creator, with or without the ball. In general, to continue to be influential within a group, and to know where to place myself according to others. »
After a successful 2021/22 season at North Carolina at the college level, both personally and collectively with the Tar Heels reaching the National Final, Brady Manek is now hoping to take it to the next level.
” It’s great, I’m glad the team gave me a chance. It’s a nice feeling, we feel our goal is close. I will live this whole experience, and then I will see where it takes me, as hopefully as possible. The Oklahoma native was added this Wednesday, after training for the Hornets Summer League version.
