Duke expects freshman guard Austin Rivers to decide next week whether he will enter the NBA Draft.
Team spokesman Matt Plizga said Friday that Rivers will discuss his plans with his family this weekend, and an announcement on his future is expected next week.
The son of Boston Celtics coach Doc Rivers averaged a team-leading 15.5 points and was a unanimous selection as the ACC's rookie of the year.
"He hasn't decided anything yet," Rivers said before the Celtics played at Philadelphia. "He's got to make a decision. He leans one way one day, then the other. That's part of it."

His unquestioned highlight was a buzzer-beating three-pointer that gave Duke an 85-84 win at North Carolina.
If he opts to leave, he would become the second one-and-done Blue Devils guard in two years. Kyrie Irving left after one season and Cleveland made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft.
"It's good that he has choices," Doc Rivers said. "It'll be soon."
Rivers said it would be "interesting" if Austin Rivers played for the Celtics next season.
Muhammad sets date
Top 2012 Kentucky recruit Shabazz Muhammad will announce his college choice April 10, according to a Scout.com report.
Scout.com's Evan Daniels cited Muhammad's high school coach, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman' Grant Rice. "That's what it looks like," Rice told Daniels. "It's definitely the 10th."
Muhammad, the nation's top high school prospect, according to Rivals and No. 2 according to ESPN and Scout.com, lists Kentucky, UCLA, UNLV, Duke and Kansas on his final list of choices.
Around the nation
Minnesota: The NCAA has granted injured Gophers forward Trevor Mbakwe a sixth season of eligibility.
The Golden Gophers announced the NCAA's decision Friday, but the 6-foot-8 Mbakwe has not said if he will return next season after rehabbing a torn ligament in his right knee.
"I am certainly excited for the opportunity that the NCAA has given me in a sixth year of eligibility," Mbakwe said in a statement issued by the school. "I want to thank my family and all of Gopher Nation for all of the support. It has been a difficult season, but I am confident that I will be able to return to the type of player I was before the injury."
Mbakwe was leading the Gophers with 14.0 points and 9.1 rebounds per game when he crumpled to the court against Dayton on Nov. 27. He had surgery in December.
Duquesne: Ron Everhart has been fired as coach after six seasons with the Dukes.
Everhart went 99-89, and took the embattled program to postseason play three times. But questions began to surface this week, when three members of the team — including sophomore point guard T.J. McConnell, the team's best overall player — announced intentions to transfer.
Duquesne athletic director Greg Amodio made the announcement on Friday.
"We are trying to get this thing to the next level," Amodio said. "And we reached the point where we said: 'Do we need to get new leadership to help us get there?'"
Wake Forest: Center Carson Desrosiers and guard Anthony Fields are the latest players leaving the Demon Deacons.
Desrosiers started 16 of 31 games as a sophomore and averaged 4.8 points and 4.4 rebounds. Fields played in 24 games as a reserve and averaged one point and one assist as a freshman. Earlier this week, point guard Tony Chennault said he was transferring to be closer to his family in the Philadelphia area.
The defections leave the Demon Deacons with only four scholarship players returning from a team that went 13-18 and finished in a four-way tie for ninth in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
