Grayson Allen most interesting Blue Devil entering next season

The Blue Devils will arguably be as talented as they’ve ever been going into the 2016-17 season. Duke has four projected first-round picks in the 2017 Draft —Harry Giles (1), Jayson Tatum (3), Marques Bolden (8) and Grayson Allen (23), according to Draft Express. The only other time the Blue Devils had four first-round picks? The otherworldly 1998-99 squad of Elton Brand (1), Trajan Langdon (11), Corey Maggette (13) and William Avery (14).

Two of the other three ACC players taken in the 2016 draft’s first round, Florida State’s Malik Beasley and Syracuse’s Malachi Richardson, also were freshmen.
