Louisville forward Thomas transferring to Memphis
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Lance Thomas has decided to transfer to Memphis after being granted his unconditional release by Louisville.
Thomas announced his choice Friday in a video he posted to Twitter . He thanked Louisville in the video and finished by announcing his decision with ''Go Tigers.''
The 6-foot-8, 210-pound Thomas averaged 2.2 points, 1.3 rebounds and 4.2 minutes in 12 games last season as a Cardinals freshman. Head coach Chris Mack, hired in March to replace interim coach David Padgett, said in a release May 22 that Thomas and his family believed a change was best for the Norcross, Georgia, native and wished him well.
Thomas is the latest addition for first-time head coach Penny Hardaway, who was hired in March to revitalize his alma mater.
