5 Colleges that produce the best NBA players
Duke's ability to produce NBA players has come into focus once again this season due to Blue Devils' current exciting crop of players. Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, and Cam Reddish are all projected to be top 5 picks in the upcoming NBA draft, a feat that has rarely happened in the history of college ball.
A number of current NBA stars also used to call Duke home. Kyrie Irving spent a year with the team before being selected by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the first overall pick in the 2011 draft, while the promising duo of Brandom Ingram and Jayson Tatum have also represented the Blue Devils in recent years.
Other ex-Duke players include Jabari Parker, Rodney Hood, J.J. Reddick, Austin Rivers, and Seth Curry, and overall, Duke has sent nearly 60 players to the NBA.
