Twitter reactions to the news of Quade Green’s transfer

Not a crushing blow for the Wildcats, but this is the right move for Green.

Earlier this morning the rumor mill was swirling when Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio put out a cryptic tweet involving news around the UK Basketball team:

Well, about an hour later, that news turned out to be the potential transfer of Kentucky Wildcats point guard Quade Green. This comes on the heels of Green struggling all season long, playing as the number three point guard in the rotation behind Ashton Hagans and Immanuel Quickley.

Transferring seems to be the best option for Green, as his situation is similar to Kyle Wiltjer’s a few years ago. He’s not getting the playing time that he wants and if one of Hagans or Quickley decided to return next year, or maybe both, combined with Tyrese Maxey, Quade would more than likely be the third or fourth option at point guard.

I would expect Green to look at his other schools that were on his list along with Kentucky; Temple, Villanova, and Syracuse. I would also watch for Washington, as the assistant that was recruiting Green to Syracuse, Mike Hopkins, is now the head coach of the Huskies. They are already getting buzz as a possible destination for Green.

Now, let’s see what twitter had to say involving the news:

There’s actually a really cool story about Green on TJ Beisner’s timeline that you should take the time to read. It didn’t work out at UK, but Green is a great kid who will hopefully find what he’s looking for at his next school.
