Duke junior forward Wendell Moore Jr. is entering the 2022 NBA Draft and hiring an agent, according to a press release from the school.
Moore is 6-foot-5 and was named the Julius Erving Award winner, given to the nation’s best small forward.
“Words cannot express the honor and privilege it is to wear this Duke jersey alongside some of the greatest names in the history of college basketball,” Moore said in the release. “As I announce my intention to enter the 2022 NBA Draft, I can only hope that I’ve done The Brotherhood proud.
“I’ve grown so much over the last three years – experienced highs and lows that will shape me for the rest of my life. It has truly been an honor to be a Blue Devil, and although I will miss those moments with my teammates, I will cherish them forever.”
Moore is a projected second-round pick in most respected mock drafts after being perhaps the ACC’s best wing defender.
