We have to look good to a big like Reid Travis from last year.
Kentucky is going after a Reid Travis grad transfer replacement. His name is escaping me. He’s from a northeastern mid-major.
Nate Sestina from Bucknell
John Petty, Dazon Ingram, Kira Lewis and Daniel Giddens are all transferring from Bama in the wake of Avery Johnson's ouster. Ingram is the only one who qualifies for a grad transfer, and I don't think he is good enough to play here.
Yeah... I just saw that petty announced.
Whoever takes over at Bama ... has a tough road ahead.
Not sure his name has been mentioned but 6'8 forward Shakur Juiston from UNLV is transferring. In the 2017-18 season he averaged 14.6 ppg and 10 rpg.
This past year he only played 8 games before injuring his knee against Illinois in early December. He was averaging 10.8 ppg and 8.8 rpg in those 8 games before having season ending surgery to repair his meniscus. This was not an ACL injury and he's expected to be good to go well in time for this summer.
Since he's graduating this semester, he's eligible to play right away. Imo, Mike White should go all in on this guy and will be quite a catch for any team he transfers to.
Shakur Juiston, Cheickna Dembele latest UNLV basketball players to transfer
6'11 and athletic? Me likes.
Wherever that he ends up, Juiston appears to be a player who could be an instant starter at PF: he averaged 30 min/g, scored 482 pts in 2018.

On the other hand, the 6'11" Dembele hasn't played that much.Cheickna Dembele Stats | ESPN
Also, both of these ex-UNLV players appear to be terrible Free-throw shooters (</= 50%).
When a coach leaves, the transfer player can appeal having to sit a year. Giddens is 6'11 with a year of eligibility left. His performance, never great, dropped this past year and he missed half the games

Joey Brunk makes decision to transfer
"Butler University big man Joey Brunk has decided to transfer from Butler, and he will have two years of eligibility remaining.
This past season, Brunk averaged 7.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game while shooting nearly 62 percent from the floor. Those numbers came in just 18.6 minutes per contest.
Listed at 6-foot-11 and 230 pounds, Brunk was one of the most efficient low-post scorers in the entire Big East. To go along with his ability to score on the low block, Brunk showed himself to be a willing and effective passer, and also has a solid touch in the mid-range."
Apparently Brunk is graduating in May and would have 2 years eligibility remaining.
We played them twice this year and i don't even remember seeing that guy. Looking at his game log he did diddly squat against us. If you were a big and couldn't do diddly squat against UF that's a HARD PASS.
His numbers of 7.6 and 3.6 would be better than all Centers/bigs returning for us, only Johnson would be the returner with a better Reb per game avg. He'd be the perfect "2nd" big transfer.
He was 2nd on the Butler squad in OFF rebs.
5th in minutes and 5th in scoring.
I'd take him.

He seems to be a good passer as well. The only one we have right now is Stokes.
Obviously a smart dude too, since he would have 2 years of eligibility. Hope we have a grad program for him.
Just watched the highlights of Pierce from W&M and he is really a 2 or 3 that maybe could slide into the 4 for a few minutes. Looks good, but not what we need.
Has always looked kinda stiff and robotic to me
This is a JUCO, not a grad transfer, and I like him.....playing now in Daytona (and presently uncommitted):
Rated #4 Khadim Sy 6'10 Daytona State PF, formerly of Va. Tech.
Wish we could get in on him! Has a good inside game and can hit the jumper from long distance.
Nice stats too:
Way to buzz kill
Eric, are we in on him?
I've seen this kid once at DME. I wasn't there for him but I do remember he played well. No particulars to recall because the game he was in didn't matter much. He was the one kid playing above the rim and rebounded well. Reminded me of Gak when he was healthy.
