The Duke Blue Devils will have some unexpected company on their upcoming tour through China. According to Tuesday reports by ACC Now, head coach Mike Krzyzewski indicated that former Duke legends Grant Hill and Jay Williams would be joining the team, as well as recently drafted stars Nolan Smith and Kyrie Irving.
The Blue Devils depart the U.S. on Sunday, and plan to spend two weeks in China. Thus far Krzyzewski's squad is scheduled to participate in four games -- three against Chinese club teams and a fourth against the United Arab Emirates national team. The celebrated coach hopes has made it clear to players that he hopes all the time together will bring the team closer.
"Going to a different country, that's all you got, us guys together for two weeks. We're going to be able to grow on the court and even more off the court and that's going to help us grow as a family," Duke guard Seth Curry said.
Hanging out with Grant Hill certainly won't hurt either.
