DURHAM, N.C. – Trevon Duval has become the fifth Blue Devil to enter the NBA this season, as the former Duke guard was named to the Houston Rockets Summer League roster that was announced Friday.
Duval joins teammates Marvin Bagley III, Wendell Carter Jr., Grayson Allen and Gary Trent Jr., who were each selected last week during the 2018 NBA Draft. The Blue Devils’ four draftees matched a single-draft school record.
A native of New Castle, Del., Duval’s 207 assists this season were the fourth-most by a Duke freshman, while his 5.6 assists per game ranked third in the ACC. The rookie closed his collegiate career on a high, being named to the NCAA All-Midwest Region Team after scoring double-figures in three of Duke’s four tournament games, including 20 points against Kansas in the Elite Eight.
Duval will wear No. 57 and his team is set for three preliminary round games in the Las Vegas Summer League: July 6 vs. Pacers (2 p.m. CT on NBATV), July 8 vs. Warriors (6:30 CT on ESPN2) and July 9 vs. Clippers (10:30 CT on NBATV).
