Duke could lose another two players after juniors Javin DeLaurier and Marques Bolden declared Monday for the NBA draft, the school announced.

Both players will gather feedback from NBA personnel while maintaining their college eligibility, thus leaving open the possibility of returning to Duke for their senior year.

DeLaurier and Bolden are the fourth and fifth Blue Devils this offseason to declare early after freshmen Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, and Cam Reddish announced their decisions to enter this summer's NBA draft.

DeLaurier started 16 games and averaged 3.8 points, 4.4 boards, and 1.3 blocks per contest across 38 appearances this past season.

Bolden was a five-star prospect and McDonald's All-American coming out of high school. However, the 6-foot-11 center has largely failed to live up to expectations. He averaged career highs in points (5.3), boards (4.5), and blocks (1.7) in 35 games played during his junior year.
