Duke point guard Tre Jones will forgo his final two years of eligibility and enter the NBA Draft, ESPN reported Saturday.

The sophomore was named both the ACC Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, becoming just the second player in conference history (Virginia’s Malcom Brogdon, 2016) to win both awards in the same season.

Jones, the brother of former Blue Devils point guard Tyus Jones, averaged 16.2 points, 6.4 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals per game for Duke (25-6) this season. Several mock drafts have Jones (6-foot-3, 185 pounds) as a late first-round pick in a class loaded with point guards.
