    Hope Duke lands one of Chandler, Keels, or Christie. Chandler seems the most likely as of now.

    Chandler, Steward, and Roach would be a great 3 man rotation. That's 25, 25, and 30 if 0 minutes are spent at the 3. That shouldn't scare anybody away.

    It shouldn't but it might. Although UT has guys possibly coming back as well, maybe not 5 stars though.

    I am hearing that UT has pulled significantly in front of Duke for Chandler, and although K and staff has really turned up the heat, UT’s lead may be too big to overcome. Regarding who’s bringing who back in the backcourt at both Duke and UT, one could argue that the Vols will have more stacked backcourt in the 2021-2022 season.

    Duke Returning Players - lets say either Roach or Steward return but not both. If it’s Steward returning, who’s playing PG

    UT Returning Players - lets say one of UT’s incoming 5* SGs returns and its Keon Johnson. UT will still have Santiago Vescovi (2 year starter), Josiah James, Victor Bailey (Oregon transfer with a year left when Chandler arrives). You’ve got at least 4 guards who have logged significant minutes including two 5* guards

    The prevailing wisdom was if Chandler committed in the Summer or early Fall, it was good news for Duke. That has changed. Need Chandler to see how stacked and deep UT’s backcourt is but also let him see that they have no front court players returning. On the other hand, Chandler can see that there will be an immediate starting spot open at Duke in 2021 and that we will have a stacked front court to complement either Chandler and Steward/Roach.
