DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Wendell Moore Jr. is the third Duke player this week to announce plans to enter the NBA draft.
The school says Moore plans to hire an agent. The 6-foot-5, 213-pound junior and potential first-round draft prospect won the Julius Erving Award as college basketball’s top small forward this season.
Moore is ranked as the No. 34 draft prospect by ESPN. Moore averaged career highs of 13.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.4 assists. He also improved significantly as a 3-point shooter.
Moore follows 7-foot-1 sophomore Mark Williams and 6-10 star freshman Paolo Banchero into the draft.
