Andre Dawkins coming back next year, according to sources (him on twitter).
Pleasantly surprised at this decision. Duke will be loaded at the 2-3-4 next year.

Where do you see him fitting into the rotation, Adam?
#34 in honor of Ray Allen and probably a lil bit for his good friend Ryan the Raven.
I guess the backup 2G spot is for him and Matty J.
I'm so happy for him and can't really fathom the depth we're going to have at the 2-3-4 positions next year...
I'm pumped. This is bigger than some think. He will be our best shooter. Another athlete. Will make everyone better by increasing the competition for playing time. He still has a lot of potential. Hope he has worked hard into making himself a solid defender as well
Official confirmation from Duke:
Andre Dawkins Will Return in 2013-14
Lets hope he actually does some dribble drives and not just spot-up.
This. I'm anxious to see how his game has developed since his time off from the team on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Could be a huge "addition" or a seat warmer.
I doubt Andre would've come back to sit on the bench. Being that he's graduating in May, he could go just about anywhere.
The competition at the 2-3-4 is going to be a huge positive for Duke next year, I think. Practice is going to be insanely tough.
I HOPE he's up to the challenge.
Me too, Mack. Me too.
As far as guys who could see time at the 2-3-4 spots next year we have:
So that's a total of 120mpg at those three spots. How do you guys think it will shake out?
2 spot - Sheed, Dre, Jones (limited mins)
3 spot - Hood, Dre, Murphy
4 spot - Parker, Amile, Hairston, Semi (limited mins)
5 spot - Black(?), Amile, MP3, Hairston
Awesome interview with Andre where he completely opens up about his year last year focusing on himself and away from basketball.

Wow, what a powerful article. Thanks for sharing, Adam.
I never heard Andre open up as much as he did in this article
Agreed. Seems like he's come to terms with a lot of off the court issues, which can only help on the court. You could tell something wasn't right with him in 2011.
Yeah you could, I'm loving the new Dre.
