Tre Jones Done With Duke, Entering NBA Draft
Tre Jones appears to be done with Duke. The talented prospect will be entering the 2020 NBA Draft.
With the NCAA season coming to an abrupt conclusion, Jones did not get the opportunity to showcase his skills on the biggest stage of all. That said, he did more than enough to prove his worth during his stretch with the Blue Devils this past year.

As such, it should come as no surprise that this past week Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski suggested that Jones would likely be departing to the pros this summer.
On Saturday morning, ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed that report.
Last year, Jones averaged 16.2 points, 6.4 assists and 1.8 steals per game for Duke. For his troubles, he earned the ACC Player of the Year award and the ACC Defensive Player of the Year award.
According to ESPN’s mock draft, Jones currently figures to be taken somewhere at the end of the first round or beginning of the second round.
