Duke is an athletic, right-handed, scoring guard that played heavy minutes at Providence (37.1 mins. per game, led the Big East). He averaged 16.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 4.8 assists, and 1.2 steals in 2020-21. He shot 38.9% 3-pt. FG, and 79.2% FT. His assist-to-turnover was 1.55-to-1, which is very solid for a shooting guard. ...His wingspan is 6'9". He posted a 39" max. vert. at the NBA Draft Combine. ...Duke's DEFRTG was slightly worse (0.2 points) than the Providence team DEFRTG. ...We do not think Duke will be drafted but he is one of those players that is not far away from being good enough. He has positional size and he is known as a hard worker. I'd bet on that kind of player for a development deal.
Our best advice: in 2006, the 28th pick was Maurice Ager. We advised, "draft P.J. Tucker."
