Gerald Henderson Jr. won’t be returning to Duke for his senior season sources have confirmed to FoxSports' Jeff Goodman.

Gerald Henderson Jr. won’t be returning to Duke for his senior season.

According to multiple sources close to the situation, the athletic Blue Devils junior wing intends to sign with an agent and give up his final season of college eligibility.

The 6-foot-4 Henderson, the son of former NBA guard Gerald Henderson, averaged 16.5 points and 4.9 rebounds per game this past season.

However, after a slow start to the season, Henderson was terrific and averaged 19 points per game for the final 23 contests of the season.

According to NBA executives, Henderson is a likely lottery pick in the June 25 NBA Draft.

The loss of Henderson means that Duke will be even more reliant on senior Jon Scheyer and junior Kyle Singler. The Blue Devils will also need sophomore guard Elliott Williams to make a significant jump after starting the latter portion of the season.

Duke also returns senior forward Lance Thomas, junior guard Nolan Smith and a pair of unproven big men – senior 7-footer Brian Zoubek and sophomore Miles Plumlee.

The Blue Devils will also add a pair of talented local frontcourt players and McDonald’s All-Americans in forward Ryan Kelly and Mason Plumlee.
