Cade Tyson, SF

This transfer target is on the other end of the spectrum from Oumar Ballo. Cade Tyson has emerged as one of the best shooters in the country during his two seasons at Belmont. There are already rumors that Duke, along with other top-tier teams, has contacted the 6'7" wing who is entering his junior year.

Tyson averaged 16.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, on an impressive 46.5% from three on 5.5 attempts per game. He had the second-highest three-point shooting percentage in the country. Having a shooter with the gravity Tyson has around the incoming freshmen would provide them with much-needed floor-spacing as they adjust to NCAA basketball.

A Monroe, NC native, Tyson would be coming home if he were to transfer to Duke. UNC is also reportedly interested in him so it will be a tough battle to land the sharpshooter.

Jon Scheyer likes to play a modern style of basketball with an emphasis on generating a lot of three-pointers. Tyson would certainly help on that front, even though it may seem like perimeter help is not the most pressing need in Durham.
