    Fansided: Top-ranked SG may reclass to pad 2020 Duke basketball class

    Maybe Terrence Clarke has noticed the Duke basketball coaches appearing to lose ground in the race for five-star 2020 shooting guard Brandon Boston Jr.

    Or maybe Clarke caught the ESPY Awards on Wednesday night and noticed the sincerity in the voice of the most spectacular hoops specimen on the planet, Zion Williamson, who honored #TheBrotherhood with a shoutout while dropping as many "Duke" advertisements as he could during his humbly brief acceptance speech as Best College Athlete.

    Official Site of the Blue Devils: Williamson Wins 2019 ESPY as Best College Athlete

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Former Duke men's basketball standout Zion Williamson added another trophy to his collection Wednesday evening, winning the ESPY as the 2019 College Athlete of the Year.

    Williamson becomes the first Duke men's basketball player to win an ESPY, and just the fourth nominated. In 2002, both Shane Battier and Jason Williams were nominated for the College Athlete of the Year, while J.J. Redick was nominated in 2006.

    "I want to thank Duke University and Coach K for letting me perform on the highest platform," said Williamson during his acceptance speech.

    Fansided: Duke basketball: Blue Devils notice underrated 2020 SG

    As a graduating high schooler in 2008, former Duke basketball sharpshooter Seth Curry did not even register on the 247Sports Composite. His 2,101 points as a collegian and budding NBA career now make one wonder just how much fecal matter comprises those composite rankings year after year.

    Well, three-star 2020 shooting guard D.J. Gordon -- sitting at No. 125 with a game at least somewhat resembling Curry's -- has the potential to be the next in a long line of prospects to have called the whole ranking system into question.

    He's no cheetah or kangaroo (but he's not exactly slow, nor does he have glue on his soles).

    Fansided: Major recruiting advantage for Duke basketball this week

    Two words to describe the Duke basketball program's uniquely advantageous position at Peach Jam starting Wednesday:

    Just peachy.

    As the granddaddy of Nike EYBL showcases, taking place in North Augusta, S.C., where many of the nation's top four- and five-star rising juniors and seniors gather every summer, Peach Jam has become the site in recent years of commitments, shortened lists, and the likes.

    It is a seedbed for players to further grow their names, recruiting gurus to further grow their rankings, and college coaches to grow their recruiting classes.

    As for what all this means for Duke -- the only school at the moment with any commitments from any of the 2020 class' 20 best prospects on the 247Sports Composite, and it has two -- well, let's just say Blue Devil fans should like the aftermath.

    Fansided: Ranking the 2015 Duke basketball champs' upcoming NBA joyrides

    Five years after handing the Duke basketball program title No. 5, five guys from the 2014-15 squad will have a chance to shine in their roles for their respective NBA franchises.

    Four are now 23-year-olds (the infancy of a player's prime).

    Three of those -- Tyus Jones, Justise Winslow, and Jahlil Okafor -- were one-and-done freshmen when the Blue Devils marched to One Shining Moment on April 6, 2015, and have now been in the league four seasons.

    The other, Grayson Allen, after serving as the secret sauce during Duke's 68-63 title-game win over Wisconsin, stayed in Durham three more seasons and didn't make his NBA debut until last season.

    Duke Basketball Report: Tyus Jones Is About To Be A Rich Man

    Former Duke point guard Tyus Jones, perhaps the smartest point guard we've seen in Durham, either has is is about to sign an offer sheet with the Memphis Grizzlies for $28 million. The contract would be for three years.

    Minnesota reportedly is leaning against matching it so odds are Jones will be a Grizzly.

    That would give Memphis three former Blue Devils: Grayson Allen, Miles Plumlee and Jones. It wouldn't push New Orleans for the title of Duke South (the Pelicans currently boast Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram, Jahlil Okafor and JJ Redick) but it's getting close.

    Fansided: Zion Williamson to miss remainder of Summer League with bruised knee

    On his 19th birthday, the New Orleans Pelicans announced that Zion Williamson will not see the floor for the rest of the Las Vegas Summer League due to a bruised left knee.

    The highly anticipated debut of the No. 1 overall pick last night took place in the Thomas and Mack Center and was cut short due to a couple of reasons.

    First, was the reason that Williamson will not be playing anymore in Summer League after the broadcast said he sustained knee-to-knee contact with another player and would not return to the second half.

    Duke Basketball Report: YouTube Gold: Bob Knight And The Media

    Like most people, Bob Knight has a mix of good and bad qualities. On the downside, he's always been difficult and bullies people, as the late Neil Reed made clear. He's much more forgiving of his own flaws than he is of flaws he finds in others. He carries grudges for far too long and his temper can be a real problem.

    On the plus side, he's deeply loyal to people he is close to, he's brilliant enough to have revolutionized basketball offense and when his players really and truly needed him, he was deeply selfless (see: Krzyzewski, Mike and Turner, Landon).

    Fansided: Gary Trent Jr. struggles to find his shot in 2019 Summer League debut

    Gary Trent Jr. struggled from the field in his 2019 Las Vegas Summer League debut of the Portland Trail Blazers against the Detroit Pistons.

    The two-year removed former Blue Devil scored ten points on 3-of-12 shooting from the field and 2-of-5 from 3-point range. in 23 minutes, while Trent Jr. did make both of his free throws in addition to grabbing two rebounds and dishing out an assist.

    After splitting time between the G-League and the NBA, Trent Jr. only played in 15 games with the Portland Trail Blazers last season, starting one.

    In the one start, the former Blue Devil scored a career high 19 points in the final game of the regular season, making 8-of-19 from the field but just 1-of-5 from 3-point range, while accumulating two rebounds, three assists, a steal, and a block.

    Duke Basketball Report: Quinn Cook Finds A New Team

    We didn't think it would take long for former Blue Devil Quinn Cook to find a new team after being dropped by the Warriors because of budgetary constraints and it didn't: Cook is now a Los Angeles Laker.

    Chances are LeBron James will be happy to see him: he first made his NBA name with the Cleveland G-League affiliate and won a lot of respect from the Cavaliers.

    Also joining LA: DeMarcus Cousins and former Tar Heel Danny Green.

    A finisher on one end and flyswatter on the other, Duke basketball target Mark Williams may pick up the elusive fifth star before the end of his upcoming senior year.

    Preventing the four-star 2020 center from climbing the ranks in his class -- he currently sits at No. 37 on the 247Sports Composite -- could turn out to be his limited hops, strength, and offensive weapons.

    But there's no questioning his passion as a player, his maturity as a person, his instincts in the paint on defense, his quick decisions with the ball on offense, and his 7-foot, 225-pound frame with a 7-foot-4 wingspan (for fans who have followed Duke for at least 20 years, imagine a more polished version of former Blue Devil big man Casey Sanders).

    Fansided: Duke basketball: Blue Devils closing in quick on pivotal 2020 target

    With likely no big men returning after next season, the Duke basketball paint department has openings to fill for the fall of 2020.

    The boss, Mike Krzyzewski, has completed the first round of interviews and extended a couple of offers. The prized applicant, proven paint-shaker Walker Kessler, seems to be in the final stages of his decision as to whether or not he accepts the legend's offer.

    Fingers crossed he does, for the five-star center, who ranks No. 16 overall and No. 4 at his position on the 247Sports Composite, would greatly reduce management's stress over potentially having to fill a position with someone lacking the proper qualifications.

    Well, Kawhi Leonard made his decision late Friday night, or early Saturday morning, whichever way you want to look at it, and it send ripple affects throughout the NBA.

    Leonard opted to go to Los Angles and join the Clippers, a team many thought was out of the running to land the most recent NBA Finals MVP.

    While NBA Free Agency started with a bang on June 30, many players that had not signed as of July 2 were waiting to see what Leonard would decide to do before they made their own decision.
