The 6-foot-3 freshman will sign with an agent and forgo his remaining eligibly, multiple sources told CBSSports.com.
Rivers, the son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers, averaged 15.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists this past season in Durham.
Rivers, according to multiple NBA executives, is expected to be a lottery pick in June's NBA Draft.

The Blue Devils could also lose junior forward Mason Plumlee early. Plumlee has yet to make a decision, but is expected to do so next week.


Thoughts?

Sweet, always good to see dukies leaving. Borderline lottery player unless other guys go back to school or he turns out to be 6'4, though it may be better for him to go to a decent team in the NBA rather than a bottom feeder. I think he could be useful in the NBA as a 6th man type like Jamal Crawford because he looks like an undersized combo guard.

wasn't as good as billed so not that big of a loss, so long as Dook can replace him. They have Saurumon (sp?) coming in.

No surprises here. The kid was having fun after he hit that shot in the Dean Dome but you can tell otherwise he's been frustrated and unhappy with his situation. I still don't believe Duke was the right fit for him all along--best wishes to him in the NBA.

agreed. Coach Cal does a great job with one and dones. Coach K is too old school for those kind of players. Not cuttin him down. Lots of respect for the man. Just seemed like the priorities didn't sync up on the court.

Does that mean Dook is going to suck even worse next year? Maybe Coach K will have another mysterious condition, like the last time their team sucked, so his record won't get tarnished.

after his comments regarding Duke's early exit this isn't surprising. Honestly, I don't know if I'd want him back if I was a Duke fan....wait.....yes I would

oh and State's chances at an ACC title are looking better and better

In fact with FSU should be competitive next year too, who knows UNC and Duke could drop to 3 and 4

I lol'ed.

K can't keep players like Roy does.

We have guys that come back to get a Championship, K's kids are looking for the door.

I don't ever want to see that kid again, maybe he will take reddicks spot.

Rivers is not all that good. Think he will be a later pick. He's no where close to Irving was last year. Doesn't see rivers being a star in the nba

Rivers was mostly a disappointment. He put in the effort though and there were some positive results (minus the tournament). He needs to gain a lot of weight and be more passive. His defense is also suspect.
