Austin Rivers, son of Celtics coach Doc Rivers, is reportedly leaving Duke after his freshman season.

The 6-foot-4 Rivers, who averaged 15.5 points, 2.1 assists, and 3.4 rebounds per game last season, will sign with an agent and forgo his remaining eligibility, sources told CBSSports.com.

Rivers is expected to be a lottery pick in June's NBA Draft.

Duke was upset in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament last week, losing to Lehigh. Rivers scored 19 points in the defeat.
