Hoops walk-on to transfer

UA men’s basketball walk-on DJ Shumpert will transfer to another school, he announced today through the program’s information department. The Tucson native hasn’t not yet chosen which school he will attend. 

The sophomore averaged .2 points, .7 rebounds and .2 assists per game in 10 games this season. The 6-foot-7, 190-pounder averaged 2.1 minutes per game. 

“”DJ Shumpert is a fantastic kid and was an exceptional teammate and representative of our basketball program during his two years at Arizona,”” UA head coach Sean Miller said in a press release. ””Like a lot of young players he wants to put himself in a position to have a more significant role as a basketball player in his future.   

“”We mutually agreed that pursuing that at another program would be best for him,”” Miller continued. “”We wish DJ all the best in his future, and in the meantime, he will continue to workout and be a part of our postseason program.””
