This wasn't a surprise by any means, but still worth noting for the lottery teams in this summer's draft.
Reddish is an extremely intriguing prospect. He looked like a monster coming out of high school, but struggled at times as the third banana in the Duke offense. Reddish finished his collegiate career with 13.5 points per game on 35.6% shooting, adding 1.9 assists and 2.7 turnovers per contest.
He was once deemed as a top-five pick, but his struggles will likely put him in the six-to-nine range depending on workouts and how the lottery order shakes out.
"This season was epic, and I am so thankful to have had Duke as a part of the foundation that prepared me to play at the next level. Never forget – I am a Blue Devil for life. Proud to announce that I will be entering the 2019 NBA Draft." - Cam Reddish pic.twitter.com/qTr8v8oDhz— Ballislife.com (@Ballislife) April 11, 2019
Reddish is not alone when it comes to Duke stars abandoning the program after one year, with RJ Barrett announcing he was declaring for the draft yesterday.
Looks like Tre Jones will be more or less alone next season (unless Zion Williamson shocks the world and stays at Duke).
