Tatum, a 6-foot-8 small forward, is expected to be a top-five pick in June's NBA draft.
Tatum averaged 16.8 points and 7.3 rebounds during his one season in Durham. He missed the first eight games of the season with a foot sprain but scored in double figures in all but three games the rest of the season.
