College Breakdown: Trevon Duval comes to the Bucks organization by way of Duke University. After being named a McDonald’s High School All-American, Duval attended Duke for one season before declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft. Duval averaged 10.3 points, 5.6 assists and 1.5 steals per game during the 2017-2018 season on 42.8 percent shooting from the field. The Delaware-product ranked 1st in the ACC last season in total assists (207) and 5th in total steals (54). Duval helped the Blue Devils reach the Elite 8 of the 2018 NCAA Tournament, averaging 13 points and 6.3 assists per game during the big dance on 38.9 percent shooting from beyond the arc. Despite averaging 10.3 points per game, Duval scored at least 15 points in 10 games last season, notching two games of 20 points or more.

Scouting Report: Duval projects as a two-way point guard in the NBA with above-average athleticism. The former Blue Devil is an excellent scorer off the dribble and can identify what a defense is trying to do before they can execute it. Duval is also a terrific passer who can fit crisp passes in the tiniest of windows. Defensively, Duval has a knack for spotting set plays and is quite talented at coming away with steals. If Duval can develop a more consistent 3-point shot, he’ll be a perfect asset for the Bucks and Herd.

Organizational Fit: Duval will join a Herd team that finished 21-29 in their first NBA G League season. Despite joining the league just a year ago, Wisconsin had three Gatorade Call-Ups during the 2017-2018 season in James Young, Xavier Munford and Brandon Jennings.
