  Gary Trent Jr. has become the third of Duke’s four star freshmen to declare for the NBA Draft. Trent joins teammates Marvin Bagley III and Trevon Duval in a one-and-done club that is expected to expand in the coming days with the addition of big man Wendell Carter Jr.

  The 6-foot-6 Minnesota native, whose father also played in the NBA, made 97 3-point baskets to break the Blue Devils’ freshman record previously held by J.J. Redick. Those 97 treys ranked third in the ACC this season while his .402 percentage from beyond the arc was the fourth best in the conference and seventh all-time by a Duke freshman.

 “Gary was the best three-point shooter in the ACC,” Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement announcing Trent’s decision. “At the NBA level, that’s what they’re looking for. He has the size of a two-guard who will be able to fit in the NBA. We appreciate everything Gary brought to Duke Basketball and wish him the best as he begins his journey in professional basketball.”
