A former Duke basketball star is ready to showcase his true talent under a new coaching regime.

Wendell Carter Jr., a low-profile Duke basketball star, is ready to take a major leap in his NBA career.

The former No. 7 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, has not lived up to expectations worthy of a Top-10 pick in his career with the Chicago Bulls thus far.

However, Carter Jr. is looking to break out of his shell under new head coach Billy Donovan and his staff.
