Former Duke Blue Devil Rodney Hood went to Utah with the #23 pick in the 2014 NBA draft, where he'll play for new coach Quin Snyder, himself of course a former Dukie.

Utah's roster has some great pieces, most of them young. Check it out: Trey Burke, Alec Burk, Derrick Favors, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter, Rudy Gobert and, courtesy of the #5 pick, Dante Exum.
That's a young team - 12 players listed currently are under the age of 26.
Hood will have a minor advantage as he's likely familiar with a lot of Snyder's ideas, having seen some of them in Durham already.
