Justise Winslow Turns Pro And Thanks Duke In Heartfelt Instagram Post

As expected, Duke freshman forward Justise Winslow is entering the 2015 NBA Draft. He's the second Blue Devil freshman to declare for the draft, joining big man Jahlil Okafor.

Winslow acknowledged the news with an eloquent Instagram post moments ago. 

Winslow is expected to be chosen in the top 10 picks of June's draft, perhaps even within the top five. The versatile 6-foot-6 Houston, Tex., native averaged 12.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in his lone season as a Blue Devil. 

With Winslow and Okafor both turning pro, attention shifts to freshman point guard Tyus Jones, who has yet to announce his intentions for next season but is a projected first-round pick if he foregoes his eligibility.
