Duke's Scoring Leader to Enter NBA Draft

By  | 

Gerald Henderson is entering the NBA draft but is keeping open the option to return to Duke for his senior season.

The school said in an announcement Saturday that Henderson has not hired an agent.

The swingman was widely expected to test his draft stock after a productive junior year in which he led the Blue Devils with 16.5 points and scoring at least 10 points in 31 games this season.

He helped Duke win its 11th Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title, finish 30-7 and reach the NCAA tournament's round of 16 for the first time since 2006.

Henderson's decision came a day before the deadline for underclassmen to enter the draft. Those who have not hired agents
may withdraw by June 15.
