    One n dones and returning players. 2018-2020

    K's contract runs to 2020 and let's that assume the worst happens and he decides to retire at the end of it.

    What are the lineups based around recruits and returning players that you want to see to give him the most chance for at least one more title during those years? I am attempting an realistic and yet optimistic lineups, so 5 star recruits for future classes who we're going after are realistically likely to commit to us based on our sustained recruiting run, and yet players that were top 10 recruits are definitely not likely to stay.

    So for next year, my optimistic lineup is

    Starting
    Delaurier, swole and improved 6'10, 240+lbs
    Zion Williamson, 6'8 230
    Cam Reddish, 6'7 205
    Darius Garland / RJ Barret
    Tre Jones

    Bench:
    Vrank
    David McCormack
    JRob
    White
    Tucker
    O'connel
    Goldwire
    Buckner

    2019:

    Hoping to see Javin return for his final year. Hope we get Vernon Carey Jr, Matthew Hurt, Josh Green and Bryan Antoine.

    Vernon Carey Jr.,
    Javin D
    Jordan Tucker
    O'Connel
    Tre Jones

    Bench:
    David McCormack
    Matthew Hurt
    Jack White
    Bryan Antoine
    Goldwire

    Why would we want to do this?

    He'll be 73. It's not out of the question.

    Whether it's "out of the question" is not what I asked.

    I would say it is probably close to a 50/50 proposition. While I am not sure I am ready to assume he won't be here after 2020, I sure wouldn't assume that K will be here past 2020. At least not with any sort of confidence.

    Our best shot at a title is probably this upcoming season because the team is extremely talented and fits together well on paper without much duplication of skills. That said, with the way the NCAA tourney works, you just want to have a great shot at it every year, and hopefully one year you break through and win 6 games. The Duke team that wins 6 games might not be this season's team even if it has the best shot.
