Check out Chris Miller's full 1-on-1 interview with UNC's small-forward, Nassir Little in the podcast below.
The draft order has been decided, teams are hosting final workouts, and the NBA Draft is just a few days away. On June 20, the Washington Wizards will pick 9th overall with the hope to add some help on defense. The team has hosted workouts and invited players such as University of Noth Carolina's, Nassir Little.
NBC Sports Washington's Chris Miller sat down with Little after his workout with the Wizards. His skill on the court is not the only thing that should impress people.
Little graduated from Orlando Christian Prep as salutatorian in 2018. Miller joked on the latest episode of the Wizards Talk Podcast that he should be referred to as "Nassir Little the science guy."
The 19-year-old has a passion for science and learning. "I just really like learning about everything and how stuff works, it's what I was into." Little broke down his play style "scientifically" calling himself a player that is extremely athletic, able to guard multiple positions and "a guy with a 40 inch vertical."
Miller noted that the Wizards have been the only team that has highlighted his abilities in the classroom.
Little's graduation rank is quite uncommon. However, he is not the only draft pick to graduate near the top of his class. Grant Hill graduated as the valedictorian and was drafted 3rd overall in 1994. Both Little and Hill wore blue during their time in college. Little sported Carolina Blue for one year while Hill spent four years in Duke blue.
