Andre Dawkins role at Duke next season

This year Coach K's SGs are Curry and Sulaimon, after the season Curry leaves Sulaimon and Dawkins return not to mention Fr. SG Matt Jones comes in as well. I don't know how Coach K will dish out the minutes amongst the 3 guards but what will Dawkins role be if Matt Jones does not Redshirt?

It seems pretty likely that

It seems pretty likely that Dawkins will not play next year at Duke. A lot of people think he is only redshirting this season so he can keep his scholarship and graduate.

He had NBA potential before

He had NBA potential before he sat out.

Eh maybe, he does have ok

Eh maybe, he does have ok size, a good vertical and a beautiful stroke, but he is absolutely one of the worst ball handlers I've seen at Duke and he isn't very quick at all. He is one of my favorite players though and I hope that he is able to come to terms with his loss and find a happy life, whether it includes basketball or not.

I thought he shouldve

I thought he shouldve transferred and still should. You are correct about his ballhandling, but like I always say, you dont go to Duke to develop into an NBA player, you go there to fit into the Duke system. He hasnt progressed, is more of a streak shooter, and doesnt attack the basket, something he did more of as a high schooler. Good player, needs work.
