DURHAM, N.C. - Duke forward Josh McRoberts has declared himself eligible for the 2007 NBA Draft that will be held on June 28 in New York City.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunities that I have had here at Duke,” said McRoberts. “This was a difficult decision, but I feel it is the best one for me and my family at this point in time. I will miss Duke, the coaching staff and my teammates but it has always been goal of mine to play in the NBA.”

"In the past couple of days, I've had the opportunity to meet with Josh and his mother," said Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. "We had great conversations and we are 100 percent behind his decision. Josh has been a terrific player for us for the past two years and he will be even better in the future as a professional. Based on our information, it is time for him to move on to the next level and we are ready to help him in any and every way during this process."

During his sophomore season, McRoberts was Duke's second-leading scorer (13.0) while also leading the team in rebounds (7.9 rpg.), blocks (2.5 bpg.) and field goal percentage (.502 – 164-of-327). The Carmel, Ind., native was also second on the team in assists (114) and tied for second in steals with 39. McRoberts, a second team All-ACC selection, was the only player in the NCAA to average at least 10.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.5 blocks and 3.5 assists per game this season.
