    Biggest draft decision of 18-19 season, Duke's Carter will announce 11 AM CST

    Per the Duke boards. Will be on ESPN. He could be the 2019 NPOY and make Duke the #1 team. If he goes, Duke could lose 10+ games

    HUGE decision

    What will it be?

    Darryl who for this team can make a 3? I get it, from a recruiting stand point, this class is unreal, but from a TEAM approach, you get any team that can shoot the ball against, they will struggle. As K ever coached a team with no legit kid who can be knock down 3 point shooter? They have no depth... now maybe they got a grad transfer up their sleeve who can make 3’s? Who knows...

    Duke 247 insiders are saying he's going to the NBA. They seem very certain. They are speaking definitively. "He is not coming back. He will be playing professionally in the NBA next year. It's not happening."

    If the announcement is on ESPN, shouldn't we make the same assumption as we do with our guys?

    He's gone.

    Reddish will be their only 3 point shooter in the starting line up. Off the bench that O'connel guy can shoot. I'd bet Reddish will shoot 3s better than Keldon Johnson will for us.

    With ESPN and Duke, I fully expect Carter to announce he is staying. In fact after Shai went on to leave, I am sure K wants his guy to do the opposite on the same platform.

    He’s leaving. Carter has a chance to be a top 5 pick. No where to go but down from there.

    Based off what?

    I'm not sure what's to gain for either party by announcing he's going to stay at Duke. There's definitely A LOT more to gain by players announcing on ESPN that they're going to the league. For those that don't know, most players pay a royalty during their playing days to ESPN and other sports networks for positive coverage. Announcements such as this is a perfect way to kick off that relationship.

    To go along with what Stu says, think about this question. What college player has announced on ESPN that he is returning?

    Gone, will sign with an agent. Per Rothstein on twitter.

    My wife used to work on a few different NBA players divorces in Chicago and when performing the full financial audits, it came up every time. It's all part of the agent agreements. You'd be surprised(well, not really) how much money they pay their agents and for what. One NBA player in particular, who I won't name, but my wife's old boss was in charge for a period of time for dispensing various payments, and the day after one of these payments were made, there were 2 highlights of this player, who just never got them.

    There was literally never even the slightest chance he was returning. Just like there was no chance he was ever picking Harvard over Duke. He and his family have been playing this “academics are important to us, maybe we won’t be one and done” game for at least 2 years.

    There was a better chance of me playing basketball on scholarship at Duke next year than Wendell Carter. And I’m 43, fat, hate Duke and sucked at basketball when I was young.

    But can you flop and trip at the same time? That's really the question.
