Duke

Krzyzewski: Roster turnover part of the process

— Day two of the ACC meetings in Florida has come and gone and a lot of the talk had to do with basketball one-and-done players and transfers.

"I think turnover for rosters all over the country is what is happening with college basketball," said Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski. "With 700-800 transfers and so many kids going pro."

Krzyzewski has experienced both in the last month. Two players decided to transfer and four are leaving early for the nba draft.

"We get a lot of guys that, if they are drafted into the pros, that’s what a university is supposed to do right?" Krzyzewski said. "Find employment for the kids that go to school there."

Duke has replenished the roster quite well in the last two weeks adding three players to the three already committed. On Monday, Krzyzewski added top point guard Trevon Duval -- and that is late in the recruiting season.

"When do you want a kid and when can a kid make a decision?" Krzyzewski inquired. "Seems like kids are making decisions later which means you might have to make a decision earlier on someone else."

Duke will have one junior and one senior on the roster this year. Grayson Allen is back for a final year. One that will hopefully be less eventful and more productive.

"First of all, we just hope he is injury free," Krzyzewski said. "He was injured all year with a variety of injuries and he had a bad incident against Elon. But Grayson is a star player."

Two upperclassmen, mixed with the unknowns of freshmen. Welcome to 2017.

"If you are constantly talking about, 'boy I wish it was the way it was then,' I think you should be smoking a pipe," Krzyzewski said. "Not that smoking a pipe is bad. You should be out of this. The fact that this is changing and all of that, keeps you young to keep adapting."

    If I could choose between the one and dones (Duke) or the juniors and seniors (Carolina) knowing that they both probably would win a title about every 7 years or so.... I would pick Carolina... I am not a big fan of the one and dones..
