Duke basketball transfer tracker: Who's staying, leaving and joining?

One-and-dones have guaranteed for years that Duke's roster will undergo major changes every season. Now, with relaxed transfer rules, extra eligibility and NIL money in the mix, each offseason is bound to bring even more adjustments and upheaval.

The transfer portal closed May 11, and some big ACC basketball jumped in.

As the Blue Devils move into Jon Scheyer's second season as head coach, here's a look at the roster changes. This story will be updated as the offseason progresses.

NBA Draft declarations

Dereck Lively II, freshman center: A lanky 7-foot-1 rim protector with a 7-7 wingspan, Lively anchored a strong Duke defense whose improvement led the way for the Blue Devils' late-season surge. Lively averaged 5.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and he was second in the ACC with 82 blocks in 27 games started. He's projected as a late first-rounder in the NBA Draft.


Dariq Whitehead, freshman guard: Making seven starts in 28 games played while dealing with foot and leg injuries, Whitehead came to Duke as the No. 3 overall prospect in the Class of 2022, according to 247Sports. At 6-foot-7, he made 42.4% of his 3-point shot attempts while averaging 8.3 points.

Incoming transfers

Neal Begovich, forward: A 6-foot-9, 225-pounder who spent four years at Stanford, Begovich has two years of eligibility remaining. He played in only 17 games for the Cardinal but should be a solid practice contributor.

Incoming freshmen

Caleb Foster, combo guard: Ranked No. 17 overall in his class on the 247Sports Composite, Foster set a California Division I state championship record with 33 points in Sherman Oaks Notre Dame High's state title-game victory. A 6-5 five-star prospect, Foster also scored 28 in his team's win over Bronny James and Sierra Canyon in the state regional final.

Jared McCain, combo guard: Ranked No. 15 overall nationally in his class on the 247Sports Composite, No. 3 at his position and No. 1 in California, McCain is a five-star and he won the McDonald's All-American 3-point shooting contest.

TJ Power, forward: Power's stock has skyrocketed as the Massachusetts native puts up huge scoring numbers in AAU ball and throws an 87 mph fastball. He reportedly hopes to play basketball and baseball in college. As a hoopster, Power is ranked the No. 22 overall prospect in his class by 247Sports Composite.

Sean Stewart, forward: Ranked No. 12 overall and the No. 4 forward nationally by 247Sports Composite, Stewart jumped over Mgbako, his future teammate, to win the McDonald's All-American dunk contest. From Monteverde (Florida) Academy, Stewart had Duke great Grant Hill as a neighbor growing up.


Kyle Filipowski, freshman forward: The Blue Devils' leading scorer (15.1 ppg) and rebounder (8.9 rpg) as a freshman is returning for his sophomore season. Ranked the 16th-best prospect in the 2023 NBA Draft by ESPN, Filipowski had a surgical procedure on his hips shortly after Duke's postseason ended and is undergoing rehab.

Mark Mitchell, freshman forward: A starter in all 35 of his games played this past season, Mitchell averaged 9.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 27.2 minutes per game. At 6-8, he scored in double-figures 16 times with a career high of 18 points against Jacksonville in the 2022-23 season opener.

Tyrese Proctor, freshman guard: Proctor's emergence as a lockdown defender gave Duke a boost in the postseason, and set the stage for him to be even more of a team leader as a sophomore. He averaged 9.4 points and 4.7 assists in 36 games with 34 starts while shooting 38.1% from the floor and 87.1% from the line.

Jeremy Roach, junior guard: Coming off a junior season in which he posted career highs in scoring (13.6 ppg), 3-point shooting (34.4%) and free-throw shooting (78%), Roach initially opted to enter the NBA Draft with the option to return to Duke if he chose to do so before the May 31 deadline. He opted out of the draft on May 16.
