UPDATE 5:18 p.m. North Carolina men's basketball head coach Roy Williams released a statement regarding Little's decision to enter the NBA draft.
"Nassir is just an outstanding young man who has been a complete pleasure to coach," Williams said in the statement. "Playing in the NBA has been a dream of his and everyone on our staff will continue to support his efforts in the months and years to come. He played a big part in our success this year and would have done even greater things late in the year were it not for a couple of injuries sustained in mid-February."
On Monday afternoon, Nassir Little announced in a statement via Twitter that he will enter the 2019 NBA Draft.
The announcement comes days after No. 1 seed UNC fell in the Sweet 16 to No. 5 seed Auburn, 97-80.
