Wendell Carter Jr. Declares For 2018 NBA Draft

After a week's worth of headlines that there was some family tension of whether or not he should enter the National Basketball Association draft, Duke freshman Wendell Carter Jr. announced that he is heading to the National Basketball Association.

From Atlanta to Durham to the Association-for one of Duke's freshman forwards, one season is all he will play at the collegiate level.

"Taking that next chapter in my life is hard", Carter said.

- Add another one-and-done from Duke.

"I want to thank Duke University, my coaches and teammates for helping me so much, not only on the court, but off it as well", Carter said in a statement on his Instagram account.

Carter becomes the fourth member of Duke's freshman class to turn pro this offseason, joining Gary Trent Jr., Trevon Duval and Bagley.

"We're all brothers, we all have each others' backs".

With senior Grayson Allen also headed for the NBA, Duke will lose its entire starting lineup from last season.

"It was such an honor to coach Wendell", said head coach Mike Krzyzewski. "I'm very excited and very happy to say I was part of something special here at Duke".

After averaging 12.6 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.9 blocks over the first 12 games, Carter increased his averages to 14.0 points, 9.2 rebounds and 2.1 blocks over the final 25 contests. "He and his family were a true joy to have in our program and they'll always be in our program". He had a sensational freshman year - a double-double guy - and he has so much more potential. A good combine could solidify Carter's chances of going in the lottery. "He really represented himself, his family and Duke in a first-class manner, and whoever gets him is going to be very lucky".
