DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- Austin Rivers is leaving Duke after one season for the NBA draft.
The freshman guard announced his decision and plans to hire an agent on Monday after team officials said he spent the weekend discussing his future plans with his family at their home outside Orlando, Fla.
The son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers averaged a team-leading 15.5 points and was a unanimous selection as the Atlantic Coast Conference's rookie of the year. The top highlight of his only college season was a buzzer-beating 3-pointer last month that gave Duke an 85-84 victory at North Carolina.
He's the fourth player to leave Duke after one season and the second in two years, after Cleveland made Kyrie Irving the No. 1 overall pick of last year's draft.
