Nevada continued to hit the transfer market hard as the Wolf Pack landed a commitment from Brown transfer forward Leland King, according to multiple reports.
The 6-foot-7 King had a breakout sophomore season for the Bears as he averaged 14.6 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. The native of California will have to sit out the 2015-16 season, due to NCAA transfer restrictions, but he’ll have two more seasons of eligibility remaining after that. King also shot 47 percent from the floor and 75 percent from the free-throw line during his sophomore season.
Nevada has been incredibly active on the transfer market since new head coach Eric Musselman took over. They landed Missouri State guard Marcus Marshall, Southern Illinois forward Jordan Caroline and Marshall guard Shawn Smith all this offseason and appear to be rebuilding the roster through transfers.
Nevada gets commitment from transfer forward from Southern Illinois
As a freshman, Caroline was a very productive player in the Valley, averaging 25 minutes per game while averaging 9.2 points and 6.2 rebounds per game. Caroline also shot 44 percent from the field, and got to the free-throw line 153 times, making 66 percent of them.
After sitting out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer restrictions, Caroline will have three seasons of eligibility remaining. He is a solid addition for new head coach Eric Musselman and gives the Wolfpack a likely rotation player and potential starter once he is done sitting out next season.
Nevada picks up a high-scoring transfer from Missouri State
Before leaving, Marshall was averaging 19.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game for Missouri State while shooting 45 percent from the field and from 3-point range.
The addition of Marshall should be a significant boost to the Wolfpack and new head coach Eric Musselman. Per NCAA transfer rules, Marshall will have to sit out next season, but will be eligible for his final season beginning during the 2016-17 season.
