Trevor Keels becomes fourth Duke player to enter 2022 NBA Draft

Duke freshman Trevor Keels announced that he is entering the 2022 NBA Draft.

"Playing at Duke was a dream and I feel that now is the time to chase another dream. I am excited to enter my name in the 2022 NBA Draft," Keels wrote on social media. "I found a second home at Duke and I'll be riding with The Brotherhood for life."

Keels is the fourth Duke player to enter this year's draft, joining freshman Paolo Banchero, sophomore Mark Williams and junior Wendell Moore Jr. 

This season, the 18-year-old averaged 11.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.5 threes and 1.2 steals, while shooting 41.9% from the field, 31.2% from three-point range and 67.0% from the free-throw line. 

Matt Babcock, our senior NBA Draft analyst, was impressed by Keels and projects him as a late-first or early-second round pick.

"A physical and slashing guard capable of shooting the ball from outside, Trevor Keels came to Duke after being a consensus five-star high school recruit," Babcock said. "His physicality and natural ability to score the ball should generate interest from NBA teams. Although he can be streaky as a shooter, he has a beautiful release and has proven to be a tough shot-maker. With positional size and a knack for scoring, Keels is one to follow during the pre-draft process."

In BasketballNews.com's most recent 2022 NBA Mock Draft, Keels is projected to go No. 32 overall to the Orlando Magic.
