The Milwaukee Bucks have signed Undrafted rookie free agent Trevon Duval to a 2-way contract. Duval is a 19-year old point guard out of the University of Duke. Duval was a 5-star recruit from IMG Academy. He was a 2017 McDonald’s All-American. Duval was a highly coveted recruit who was being pursued by many blue bloods, including Duke, Arizona, Kansas, Seton Hall, and Baylor. Under Coach K Trevon started 34 of the 37 games in which he played. He averaged 10.3 points per game on 43% shooting from the field and a lowly 29% from 3 in just under 30 minutes per game.
Duval played for the Houston Rockets Summer League Team. With the Rockets Duval averaged 9.2 points per game in just about 17 minutes per. Duval’s Summer League experience was up and down. In his debut he dropped 20 points against Aaron Holiday and the Indiana Pacers, which was a high. He then missed all 8 of his shots against the Golden State Warriors, a low. Through a turbulent Summer League Duval showed enough promise to convince Jon Horst and company that he was worth a roll of the dice.
Despite a lack of consistency through College and Summer League Duval has shown enough potential to understand why the Bucks took a chance. He has a lot to work with, Duval possess good size, length, and athleticism and at age 19 he has time and room to grow. He will most likely spend most of this season in Oshkosh with the Herd, he will still be able to learn the Bucks system and hopefully hone some of his skills and polish his game. The Bucks only have one point guard under contract for next year in Matthew Dellavedova. This was possibly another driving factor in signing Duval, this way they’re able to land a young point guard with potential and is now able to grow into the Bucks system.
