Duke To Hold Two Pro Days, Close All Other Practices To NBA Scouts

Sep 14, 2016 10:20 AM

Mike Krzyzewski is barring NBA teams from scouting Duke's practices this season except for two pro days scheduled in October.

NBA executives were extended invitations to pro days on Oct. 19 and 25 at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

“All other practices will be closed,” Duke told teams in an email.

NBA executives and scouts are free to scout any and all college games.

John Calipari instituted consecutive preseason pro days in October for his program, although those have been held on back-to-back days, which allow team executives to make a single trip. 

Jayson Tatum and Harry Giles are anticipated high lottery picks in the 2017 NBA Draft.
