Plumlee told numerous sources on Thursday he's "looking at the NBA" and Duke is gathering information whether he'll be a first-rounder. He intends to sit down with his family this week and then make a decision prior to the April 10 deadline.  

The 6-foot-10 Plumlee averaged 10.9 points and 9.1 rebounds per game, a slight increase from the 7.2 points and 8.4 boards he put up as a junior.
