CBS Sports reports Austin Rivers is leaving Duke after one season:
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.
Rivers isn't a lock to land in the lottery. According to this mock draft from NBA-Draft.com, Rivers will fall to the Celtics at 22.
Boston will have two draft picks this year. It's own and the Clippers (top 10 protected). With the Clippers in free fall, Danny Ainge might have two picks in the mid-to-late teens to play with. If Ainge really wants Austin Rivers, he should be able to get him.
My question – Would Doc really want to coach his son, and vice versa?
