Report: Duke's Rodney Hood to enter NBA Draft
Duke sophomore forward Rodney Hood will forgo his final two seasons of eligibility and enter the NBA draft, reports Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
According to the report, the school will make an announcement in the upcoming days and Hood has narrowed his agent choices to two.
Hood, who averaged 16.4 points per game last season, joins teammate forward Jabari Parker in leaving Duke, as Parker announced on Thursday that he's also entering the June draft.
SI.com's Chris Mannix has Hood at No. 14 in his latest mock draft, saying Hood "put up a clunker in Duke's opening-round loss to Mercer in the NCAA tournament, but he was a prolific scorer all season, including from beyond the three-point line (42 percent)." "Defense and ball handling are question marks, but Hood's ability to score from the perimeter can't be overlooked," Mannix adds.
