Draft notebook: Virginia's Guy rules out return to school
Field Level Mediaon
Duke center Marques Bolden and forward Javin DeLaurier will enter the NBA draft process but could return to school for their senior seasons.
They filed paperwork with the league before the weekend deadline, which will allow them to be evaluated by NBA personnel. If their draft projections aren't favorable, they can withdraw from the draft by May 29.
In 35 games (21 starts) in the 2018-19 season, the 6-foot-11 Bolden averaged 5.3 points and 4.5 rebounds.
The 6-foot-10 DeLaurier played in all 38 games (16 starts) for the Blue Devils and averaged 3.8 points and 4.4 rebounds.
Duke freshmen Zion Williamson, Cam Reddish and RJ Barrett all have declared for the draft and are considered top-10 prospects.
The Blue Devils have the No. 1-ranked incoming class, which includes two five-star forwards: 6-10 Vernon Carey and 6-9 Matthew Hurt.
--Also announcing his decision to test the draft waters was Kentucky sophomore forward Nick Richards.
The 6-11 Richards started 37 games as a freshman in the 2017-18 season, averaging 5.1 points and 4.4 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per game.
But he saw his playing time fall last season, starting just three of 37 games. He averaged 12.1 minutes with 3.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
