Around 11 am on Wednesday, it was announced that Quade Green was thinking about transferring from Kentucky, then around 1:30 pm it was made official that Green was going to transfer. As if we needed more depressing news, right?
I will say that I was somewhat surprised by the news but from what I saw, the staff knew that is could happen. If you remember, Green thought about transferring in the summer, but decided to remain in Lexington for his sophomore year.
In 43 games in a UK uniform, Green averaged 9.3 pts, 1.7 rebs, and 2.6 asts.
This decision now confirms that something has to change at Kentucky. Green obviously felt like his talents could be used somewhere else, because he was not getting the opportunities of the other guards.
John Calipari released this statement about Green transferring:
We all wish you the best wherever you go, Quade.
