Here’s a nice piece on Matthew Hurt and what drew him to Duke: basically having the freedom to grow as a player.

Hurt is an outstanding shooter and Duke sold him on the idea of positionless basketball.

He also likes the idea of playing with Tre Jones: “Just his vision, his passing and how he plays defense. I think he’s the best point guard, defensively last year and this year he will be, too. Playing with a point guard like that will benefit me.”

It would benefit pretty much anybody.
