DBR Podcast Episode #299 - Jaemyn Brakefield Is Transferring

Everyone hates to see this kid go.

The Duke Basketball Report Podcast is back for a quick update on the roster situation at Duke, as freshman forward Jaemyn Brakefield announced tonight, in conjunction with the program, that he is entering the transfer portal.

Our reaction is overwhelmingly supportive of Jaemyn, who offered some memorable highlights to an otherwise less memorable season for Duke Men’s Basketball. We reminisce on his performance in wins against Notre Dame and Virginia, and we offer some hope for his pro future in spite of the transfer.

Looking at the Duke roster, we can clearly see why Jaemyn has decided to transfer, as Duke is likely going to be loaded next year at both the wing and in the post, with numerous returners as well as a couple of star recruits coming in.

After the break, we touch on former UNC head coach Matt Doherty’s new book, which apparently is not friendly to our neighbors in baby blue. Jason enjoys the internal rock fight, Donald fondly remembers UNC’s 8-20 season, and Sam is too young to remember of this ancient history.
