The Milwaukee Bucks have signed undafted rookie Trevon Duval to a two-way contract, according to Matt Velazquez of The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The 6-foot-3 point guard out of Duke averaged 10.3 points,, 5.6 assists and 1.5 steals in 37 games for the Blue Devils last season.
The 19-year-old’s Achilles’ heel has been shooting. He shot only 42.8 percent form the field in his one collegiate season, and only 290 percent on 107 3-point attempts.
Duval is the first one-and-done prospect out of Duke to go undrafted.
He played for the Rockets on their Las Vegas Summer League squad, averaging 9.2 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists and shooting 36.1 percent (13 of 36) from the field and 33.3 percent (2 of 6) from deep in 16.9 minutes per game.
Duval is expected to spend most of his time with Milwaukee’s G League affiliate, the Wisconsin Herd.
The Bucks created an opening that was filled by Duval when they withdrew their qualifying offer for two-way player Marshall Plumlee last week.
