Duke’s Tre Jones To Enter NBA Draft

Duke sophomore point guard and ACC Player of the Year Tre Jones will enter the NBA draft, he told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. We relayed yesterday that Jones was expected to enter the draft, with Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski all but confirmed the guard’s decision before it was made official.

“Obviously, Tre Jones we know is going to go, whenever he announces,” Krzyzewski said on The 247Sports College Basketball Show podcast.

Jones will join a recent glut of talent from Duke to join the NBA — Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and Cam Reddish all made the jump last season.

Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak shuttering professional sports, Jones was in the midst of a strong collegiate season. Ranked No. 33 overall and No. 12 among point guard prospects on ESPN’s Best Available list, Jones averaged 16.2 PPG, 6.4 APG and 1.8 SPG in 29 games for the Blue Devils.

    Just like his brother he’ll be a below avg pro who should’ve stay all 4 years at Duke. The amount of hype the two of them got is unreal for how mediocre they are compared to the real stud pg in college basketball

      I mean, he was ACC POY, that’s a pretty good season. And he’s a possible late 1st rounder in a terrible draft, not sure how much hype that really entails

        He was ACC POY cause he wears a Duke jersey. Jay bilas couldn’t talk enough about this kid past two years and there’s a good chance he was the reason Zion and rj didn’t win it all last year

          How is he the reason they didn’t win the title? Because he’s not as good as them? You might as well hate on the 4th best player of every good team that doesn’t win it all
