In the interest of gender equity, we could add Bob and Carey Kaufmann in the father/daughter sub-set.

In the interest of sport equity, we could add Calvin and Grant Hill, too.

Add Gary and Lee MelchionniLee never sniffed the NBA.

In the interest of gender equity, we could add Bob and Carey Kaufmann in the father/daughter sub-set.With regard to father/daughter combos, Chubby Checker and Mistie Bass are easily the greatest Duke duo ever.

Lee never sniffed the NBA.

I think the question was NBA parent of Duke player, not NBA/NBA pairs where the son went to Duke.

The son need not sniff the NBA (see Seth and Nolan).

I was going to include the Melchionni's then I thought maybe it was just Lee's uncle who had the NBA career and not the dad and was too lazy to look it up.

"Lee never sniffed the NBA."

Neither did Chris Collins, who was included in the OP. And I'm pretty sure, Seth Curry and Nolan Smith haven't played in the NBA either.
