NBA teams will see Sharpe as a developing prospect, he has great hustle and athleticism, and although the Center position is slowly being overlooked, teams can’t deny his potential. Day’Rons passing skills for someone his size will separate him from the rest of the pack. The 19-year-old has a big future ahead of him.
Reports from Jeremy Woo from Sports Illustrated said that Day’Ron Sharpe has recently withdrawn from the NBA Draft Combine, this includes the workouts and team interviews. There has been a lot of speculation as to why this is, but nothing confirmed yet. This could mean that he is comfortable with his draft stock and potentially heard from an NBA team already.
Day’Ron is the only Tar Heel who is currently heading towards the NBA Draft 2021, Armando Bacot announced this week that he will be returning to the University of North Carolina.
The NBA Draft 2021 is on the 29th of July and we will soon see the start of Day’Ron Sharpe’s next chapter.
