The one-and-done rule was implemented in 2005 and requires eligible NBA draft players to be at least 19 years old and one year removed from high school. This rule has been highly debated among fans and analysts of the NBA and NCAA. Some argue players should be able to pursue a professional basketball career after high school. However, others including NBA commissioner Adam Silver want to raise the age limit to 20.
Duke has excelled in college basketball recruiting recently, which has also led to many players leaving after one year. Forward Brandon Ingram is the most recent Blue Devil to be one-and-done and was drafted #2 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers. There are several players on this year’s roster who are expected to leave after this season, with Harry Giles and Jayson Tatum projected to be high 2017 NBA lottery picks.
