Former Duke guard
Duke Coach Mike Krzyzyewski kicked Sulaimon off the team Jan. 29 — one day after losing at Notre Dame — for being "unable to consistently live up to the standards" of his program. Duke officials have never publicly discussed the specific reasons for his dismissal.
Sulaimon, a former McDonald's All-American, averaged 7.5 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists while coming off the bench in all 20 games prior to his dismissal.
His playing time steadily decreased during his time at Duke: He started 33 of 36 games as a freshman in 2012-13, then bounced in and out of the starting lineup the following year. He was benched for a home win against Michigan that year, then played just five minutes in the next game against Gardner-Webb.
