Utah Jazz ’17-18 review: Tony Bradley’s seesaw first year
It had to be tough for 20-year-old rookie Tony Bradley to sit on the bench and watch for most of the season. He undoubtedly wants to be on the court making an impact, but he has handled everything maturely and understands that he is a project for this Utah Jazz team. Bradley took advantage of the opportunity and playing time with the Salt Lake City Stars.
Where will Jordan Brown, the nation's top uncommitted big man, sign?
The Tar Heels have been primarily communicating with Jordan Brown's father. However, their championship pedigree and Roy Williams' history of producing NBA level big men (Tony Bradley, Ed Davis, John Henson, Isaiah Hicks, Tyler Zeller) could give them more than just an outside shot. However, UNC may be on the outside looking in. Prediction: Stanford.
Bouncing between the Jazz and the Stars, rookie Tony Bradley tries to keep growing
This season has seen Tony Bradley, when not stuck on the bench with the Jazz, with Utah’s affiliate in the G League. At times, he’s had to fly cross country on a moment’s notice: He took off for Cleveland in December when Rudy Gobert got hurt, then Washington in January when Derrick Favors was a scratch. He hasn’t gotten much time, but he’s there just in case.
Tony Bradley's Father Responds to Yahoo! Sports Report
The father of former UNC center Tony Bradley pushed back against a Yahoo! Sports report Friday hinting at possible wrongdoing by his family. “We went to the office and ate pizzas while they introduced everyone that worked for [Miller].

Chansky’s Notebook: Our Coach of the Year
He won’t be, but North Carolina's Roy Williams should be ACC Coach of the Year. When you look at a team’s progress through the season, Williams has done the best job. His traditional double-post offense proved ineffective with three freshmen trying to replace Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks and Tony Bradley in the middle. So Roy went to his small lineup.

Tony Bradley's exit to NBA changed everything for the 2017-18 Tar Heels
Tony Bradley’s early NBA entry changed the dynamic of the UNC team that would return. The should-be sophomore would be anchoring the post for the Tar Heels, bringing back a year’s experience from the ACC grind and those three important weekends in March and April. He’d be a skyscraper on defense, grabbing rebounds and beginning the Tar Heel break.
UNC Signees Nassir Little, Coby White Named to McDonald's All-American Game
UNC will again be well represented in the McDonald's All-American game. 2018 signees Nassir Little and Coby White were named to the team Wednesday.

The 41st McDonald's All-American game will take place in Atlanta on March 28.
UNC Basketball's "What If?" Team
Imagine the NCAA declared that players who chose to forgo their college eligibility for the NBA could come back, join their teams and complete their careers. So Justin Jackson and Tony Bradley could return to Carolina for another run at a ring. Taking the current Tar Heels plus any that left before completing their four years, what’s the best ten-man rotation you can put together?
Tony Bradley experiences growing pains in new life as Utah Jazz rookie
Most of the media members in Salt Lake City pay it no mind when they receive the uniform press release. It usually says one or two things: “Jazz Assign Tony Bradley to Salt Lake City Stars” or “Jazz Recall Tony Bradley from Salt Lake City Stars.” Most people tend to forget that there’s one guy who is actually affected by these moves: Tony Bradley.
Video: Tony Bradley Scores 28 for Salt Lake City Stars

Luke Maye among breakout players who’ve made ‘the leap’ this season
Luke Maye has been awesome in every game this season besides Michigan State. North Carolina desperately needed a secondary star to step up next to Joel Berry with the departures of Justin Jackson, Kennedy Meeks, Isaiah Hicks and Tony Bradley. The truth is, Maye has been better than Berry in early portion of this season. That’s a good thing for the Tar Heels.
A look at four-star, one-and-done players in the NBA
Tony Bradley: Early in the summer before his senior season there was some thought that Bradley was close to committing to home state Florida despite his known affinity for North Carolina. However, despite a nice run from Kansas, Bradley chose the Tar Heels after taking his only official visit to Chapel Hill. I was surprised to see Bradley leave after one year.
Evaluating early-season performances of Sterling Manley, Garrison Brooks & Brandon Huffman
Big shoes — literally — were left to be filled along North Carolina’s frontline this season. Tony Bradley, Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks are gone. Outside of Luke Maye, the three most obvious replacement options are all freshmen.

Best Non-Conference Games Of 2017-2018 College Basketball Schedule
14. Michigan at No. 9 North Carolina (Nov. 29): Remember when Chris Webber tried to call a timeout that Michigan didn’t have in the 1993 NCAA National Championship Game? That’s the last time these two titans clashed. North Carolina offers Michigan a good measuring stick even after losing Justin Jackson, Isaiah Hicks, Tony Bradley and Kennedy Meeks.
