    Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski expects that Tre Jones will declare for the 2020 NBA draft. 

    Appearing on Th247Sports College Basketball Show podcast with Evan Daniels, Krzyzewski brought up Jones when asked if he’s had a chance to sit down with any of his players to talk about going pro. 

    “We put in for the advisory committee. You can send it in, and we will do that for a number of our guys so they can get a look,” he said. “Obviously Tre Jones we know is going to go, whenever he announces.”

    As a freshman during the 2018-19 season, Jones averaged 9.4 points and 5.3 assists per game, with a 41.4 shooting percentage.

    Jones broke out in his sophomore season last year, posting averages of 16.2 points, 6.4 assists and 1.8 steals per game. He was named ACC Player of the year and Defensive Player of the Year.

    He is currently ranked as the No. 33 overall prospect in the 2020 Draft on ESPN’s Big Board.
