— UNC Junior Raymond Felton will likely decide to enter the NBA draft and not return to school for his senior year, according to a source.

Felton said Tuesday at a UNC awards ceremony that he had made a decision about his senior year, but would not say more than that.

According to WRAL-TV sportscaster Jeff Gravley, who spoke to a well-placed source, Felton has decided to forgo his senior year and go pro.

Felton, who was awarded co-player-of-the-year honors with Sean May, would be the second UNC player to go pro early.

Rashad McCants announced Wednesday that he would be leaving before his senior year.
