Breaking: Duke’s Jon Scheyer Confirmed Major Boost as 20-year-old Guard Displays ‘Encouraging Signs of Progress’ during critical Summer…

The Blue Devils’ point guard is determined to elevate his game this offseason.

The Duke basketball team is anticipating significant growth from point guard Tyrese Proctor this season. The rising junior is already demonstrating positive strides in his development.

Proctor participated in the CP3 Elite Camp over the weekend, where Jon Chepkevich, Director of Scouting for DraftExpress, observed that the Blue Devil “showed encouraging signs of progress.”

Standing at 6-foot-5, Proctor averaged 10.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 3.7 assists per game as a sophomore, with shooting improvements to 42.3% from the floor and 35.2% from beyond the arc.

Chepkevich praised the Australian guard for his “mature game” but noted his young age of just 20 years old. Last season, Duke listed Proctor at 183 pounds, and scouts noted that he seems to have added more weight.

Entering his sophomore season, Proctor was seen as a potential first-round draft pick but struggled with consistency. He aims to enhance his draft prospects this season despite the competition from an elite group of prospects.

Tulane transfer Sion James also joined Proctor at the CP3 Elite Camp. James, described as a “Swiss Army knife” and “absolute freight train when he gets downhill,” averaged a career-high 14.0 points per game with the Green Wave last season.

Both Proctor and James are potential starters for Duke this season, alongside Caleb Foster, Cooper Flagg, and Khaman Maluach.
