UNC's Brice Johnson comes out of the crowd after being picked 25th by the Clippers.

Andrew Han ESPN Writer 

The Los Angeles Clippers selected Brice Johnson from UNC with the 25th pick in the 2016 NBA draft. Johnson was No. 16 in rebound percentage, 19 in eFG and 5th in PER last season in the NCAA.

Chad Ford ESPN Senior Writer 

The LA Clippers select UNC PF Brice Johnson at 25. He's athletic, has a nice mid-range game & was one of the best rebounders in the draft. But he's a tweener. Better prospects were on the board.

Andrew Han ESPN Writer 

With all the movement through the lottery, interesting choices for the Clippers could be waiting. Could see more than one prospect they like fall to the 25th pick.
