HILLSBOROUGH — The misdemeanor drug case against former North Carolina basketball player Will Graves has been delayed until July.
Graves was scheduled to be in court Monday, but Orange County assistant district attorney Jeff Nieman said the case was continued until July 1 because Graves is playing professionally in Argentina.
Police in Chapel Hill cited Graves with simple marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia on Dec. 6 while he stayed at a residence owned by Tar Heels coach Roy Williams.
A team spokesman said at the time that Graves was paying rent to stay there while working toward his degree and as a part-time video coordinator for the team during the fall semester.
Graves, who wasn’t arrested, issued a statement apologizing to Williams, the school, family and friends.
