Duke already has Jayson Tatum and Javin DeLaurier. Tatum will almost certainly start and will play pretty much everywhere. DeLaurier will also take minutes.  Sean Obi, Chase Jeter may still be around and Antonio Vrancovic and Justin Robinson both are late bloomers. And then Harry Giles may be at Duke as well.

So for Gabriel, if he sees a better opportunity there, best of luck to him. He seems like a nice kid.
