After not making a first-round selection in last year's draft, the LA Clippers selected North Carolina power forward Brice Johnson with the No. 25 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft.

At 6-foot-9, the former Tar Heel averaged 11.6 points and 7.0 rebounds in his four years at North Carolina but made serious improvements to his game in his final college season averaging 17.3 points per game.

Gonna be Brice Johnson for Clips. Had him as my favorite PF who could be there at 25 in my preview. Dominated around rim offensively at UNC
