    Good Luck young man. I believe you need another year or two to better aquaint yourself to the rigors involved. Again , my best wishes - and I hope you make millions !

    Thank you Trevon Duval for choosing to come to Duke during your lone college season. Your ability to break down a defender one-on-one and get into the paint was special. You were our best performer against Kansas, and you put the team on your back down the stretch for the win against FSU. I'll always remember your penchant for coming up with a timely three-pointer right when we needed to start a run -- or staunch the bleeding.

    Good luck in your pro career.

    So the link didnít actually say that he had hired an agent, just that he had put his name in. But the quotes sure sound like heís definitely gone.

    The quotes for much of the season have made it clear he was leaving. He mentioned previously that the UNC game was his last in Cameron.

    I thought this had been debunked (and that his quote was actually about it being the last game in Cameron for ďthis teamĒ). Thatís neither here nor there though at this point.

    Thanks for your efforts. Much success in the future. Wish we could have seen more of you in Duke blue.

    Good luck to the young man. I have supported him through the season and it showed apparently because someone asked me if I was any relation to him. LOL! I actually think FlyingDD was a bigger cheerleader than me.

    What is saw in this young man was a nice kid who said all the right things about his team and Duke. I read his story about his relationship with his Dad. I felt that his Dad was also very supportive and not an entitled parent type which Duke sometimes gets. I also saw his relationship with his team mates and I felt that K and the coaches always supported him. There must be a reason for that. I think he played great for Duke and he has tremendous potential in the NBA. I think he will go first round.

    One the other side many on this forum only saw his mistakes. In some games other players turned the ball over more or missed more three pointers but only TDís mistakes were highlighted. Favouritism for other players or something else along the lines of for some reason suggesting that he is just not the college type.

    Eh... If you watch the video, it's pretty clear Duval suggests it was his last game in Cameron. Having said that, the reporter asked a very leading question that was intended to get that type of response.

    Good luck Tre!

    It's being reported that he hired an agent.

    I hope Trevon finds success at the next level, however I really don't understand the rush to hire an agent.

    With the new system that's in place you have time to make an informed decision on your future. By hiring an agent there's no turning back.

    I'm sure he got a lot of scouts feedback through Coach K already.

    Interesting take here that Duval didn't have a good enough year to improve his stock for the NBA...

    Goodman's Take Has Some Interesting Tidbits:

    http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/2...-iii-nba-draft

    "Several NBA executives told ESPN that the athletic Duval is a likely second-round pick in June's draft. Duval averaged 10.3 points and 5.6 assists, but NBA executives question his decision-making and also his perimeter shooting. Duval made just 31 of 107 shots from beyond the arc this past season."

    "Blue Devils frosh Wendell Carter Jr. and Gary Trent Jr. also are expected to declare for the NBA draft."

    Interesting yes, but kind of indisputable. ESPN 100 rankings aren't the same as draft stock, but Duval was ranked ahead of: Collin Sexton, Jaren Jackson, Kevin Knox, Lonnie Walker, Troy Brown, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Trae Young, to name a few. I'll be stunned if he goes ahead of a single one of those players. Mayyyyybe Brown.

    I get the decision, he was in a tough spot. Would love to have seen what he'd do with 3-4 years, as opposed to just one more, but that's unrealistic I suppose. I'm glad we had him - he was better than he got credit for, with some obvious flaws that are completely normal for freshman point guards at schools without Tyus/Kyrie standards. Hope he lands in a good situation.

    Sometimes guys have their minds made up. It may be that Duval had no interest in another year outside the NBA.

    I donít dispute that Duval is probably destined for the second round but I also have a feeling, much like Frank Jackson, when TD gets to workout for these guys, he will really impress. I said earlier this year he is a lottery pick and Iíll eat those words but I also think he had to perhaps sacrifice more for this team than anyone. (Him or Carter).
    His three pt shooting got better once they found the issue with his eye. Plus there were several games where he hit a key 3, still not a strength but he was never afraid of the moment. He has the athleticism and vision to be a successful pro and I look forward watching him play for many years. I sure hope he surprises the skeptics.

    Thanks for all your commitment and hard work this year!

    Agreed. I think Duval was asked to be a pass-first point guard this year and thatís not really his game. He needs to be a bit more ball dominant to be at his best and there was no room for him to be that on this team for extended periods. I think heíll be a much better NBA player than he was in college.

    He may have another year or more outside the NBA, possibly even the rest of his life. To my eye, he didn't look anything like a player who could help an NBA team next year. I wish him the best, though.

    He will get drafted (probably round 2), and will play in the NBA next year. What he does from there, nobody knows. But he is going to be in the NBA next year.
