Duke guard Gary Trent Jr. became the latest Blue Devil freshman to declare for the 2018 NBA Draft on Saturday. Trent plans to officially turn pro by signing with an agent.

The 6-foot-5 Trent averaged 14.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game for Duke this season while shooting 40 percent from three-point range and 87 percent from the free-throw line.

Trent joins big man Marvin Bagley III and point guard Trevon Duval as other Blue Devil freshmen to declare for the draft.

A scoring guard, Trent hopes to join his dad, Gary Trent, as NBA first-round draft picks. The older Trent was the No. 11 overall pick in the 1995 NBA Draft as he played nine seasons in the NBA.
