Cam Johnson's UNC teammate stunned by his surprising lottery selection

While the buildup to the NBA draft was filled with excitement, trades, and anticipation, once Adam Silver started calling names Thursday night, most everything was going accordingly. Then the Phoenix Suns were on the clock. Zion Williamson went No. 1 to the New Orleans Pelicans. Ja Morant went No. 2 to the Memphis Grizzlies. RJ Barrett went No. 3 to the New York Knicks, much to the delight of fans in attendance at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. The lottery portion of the draft went mostly as expected through the first 10 picks, even though some of the teams had changed thanks to pre-draft trades. But the Suns, sitting on the No. 11 pick after trading back from No. 6 with the Minnesota Timberwolves, did what the Suns normally do. They shook things up, selecting North Carolina forward Cameron Johnson. Johnson was a draft long-shot, expected to be chosen as a flier in the second round. But his successful run at North Carolina after transferring from Pitt that included playing a key role on a team that won the ACC regular-season title and earned a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament apparently had scouts re-thinking their evaluation of the wing player with a sweet shooting stroke. He moved up in some mock drafts to the late first round and was slated at No. 21 in Yahoo’s final mock.
