North Carolina guard Cam Johnson spent the 2017-18 season with the Tar Heels as a graduate transfer and now that the season is over he had a recent meeting with coach Roy Williams to discuss his future with the program.
The former Pitt standout averaged 12.4 points and 4.7 rebounds per game this past season and now must weigh his options between declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft or returning for his final year of eligibility. And Williams discussed the decision briefly in his final radio show of the season.
“Cam and I had a good talk today, and that was about two percent of the conversation,” Williams said according to Evan Chronis of InsideCarolina.com. “We talked about some other things and about his first year here and what he expected and what he experienced and all of those things. But we’ve got more time to do the other discussions.”
Ultimately, Williams says he tries to take a complementary approach to that decision-making process, aiding in the gathering of information and staying pretty hands-off unless his opinion is requested.
At the moment, Johnson appears to be a fringe draft prospect so there would appear to be a decent chance that he’ll return to North Carolina for his final season. With Joel Berry and Theo Pinson graduating, he’ll be taking on a much bigger role on both sides of the ball but it’s clear that Williams won’t be pushing the issue with over a month until the April 22 declaration deadline.
