Parker has decided to enter the NBA draft, Sports Illustrated reports.

Parker penned a piece for SI in which he detailed the factors that went into his decision. He said he came to the conclusion that the NBA would give him the best opportunity to grow as a basketball player as well as off the court, so he will leave Duke after one season and enter the 2014 NBA Draft. The 6-8 forward averaged 19.1 points, 8.7 points, 1.2 assists and 1.2 blocks in 30.7 minutes as a freshman, and is a virtual lock to be taken with a high lottery pick come June.

Parker will decide whether to enter this year's NBA Draft on Wednesday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Parker plans to meet with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski on Tuesday to sort out his future. An All-American selection, Parker led the Blue Devils in both points (19.1) and rebounds (8.7) as a freshman. Should he opt for the NBA, Parker is expected to be a top-three selection.

Parker had 14 points and seven rebounds in Friday's stunning 78-71 loss to Mercer in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Parker shot just 4-for-14 from the floor, and there are rumblings that he may come back to Duke due to the sour taste left in his mouth following this contest. Still, he'd be a lock for a top-5 selection in this June's NBA Draft, so continue to monitor his status.

Parker came in second in the voting for ACC Player of the Year, as NC State forward TJ Warren took home the award, reports.

Warren averaged 24.8 points and 7.1 rebounds while also leading the conference in field goal percentage. Parker was certainly no slouch himself, with averages of 19.2 points and 9.0 rebounds per contest. Parker was predictably voted the league's Freshman of the Year, however.

Parker poured in a career-high 30 points against UNC on Saturday.

Parker shot 10-for-17 from the floor and 8-of-9 from the charity stripe in the 93-81 win over the Tar Heels. He also tallied 11 rebounds for his sixth-straight double-double.

Parker said Friday that he is unsure if he will forego his final three seasons of eligibility and declare for the NBA Draft, Sports Illustrated reports.

Parker is widely considered to be a top-five pick if he were to leave, so it would be a bit of a surprise if he stayed at Duke for at least one more year. The freshman is second in the ACC in scoring at 18.8 points per game, and leads the conference in rebounding with 9.0 per contest.

Parker had 19 points and 10 rebounds in Wednesday's 82-72 loss to Wake Forest.

It was the fifth-straight double-double for Parker, who is making his case for ACC Player of the Year. The freshman sensation is averaging 18.8 points and 9.0 rebounds per tilt.

Parker grabbed a double-double with 17 points (7-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-6 FT) in Duke's loss to North Carolina Thursday.

This marks Parker's sixth double-double in nine games, as his rebounding numbers have picked up a bit in ACC play. His team will need that same high level of production in their next game against Syracuse. In their last match-up, Parker fouled out early in one of the best games in college basketball this season.
