Notes:
2012: Selected by New Orleans in 1st round (10th overall) of the NBA Draft.

Son of Boston Celtics` head coach Doc Rivers, entering the draft after a strong freshman season at Duke...2012 NCAA All-Freshman Team selection...Led the Blue Devils in scoring in 2011-2012 season at 15.5 points per game, while ranking second in assists (2.1 apg)...Nailed one of the biggest shots of the 2011-2012 season with a game-winning three-pointer at the buzzer to defeat North Carolina 85-84 in February...Helped Duke to a 27-7 overall record and a No. 2 seeding in the NCAA Tournament...Excellent scoring instincts and supremely confident...Not afraid to take the big shot...Very good ball handler with numerous ways to get to the basket...Finishes well in traffic, but at times forces his own shot instead of looking for open teammates...Needs to add bulk...Not an overly effective defender.
