Report: Maryland Is A Possible Landing Spot For Duke Transfer Rasheed Sulaimon

Duke dismissed junior guard Rasheed Sulaimon in late-January for "failing to live up to the standards required to be a member of the program." News then emerged that Sulaimon had been accused of sexual assault before he was jettisoned from the team. 

Sulaimon remained in classes at Duke, and is now one of many players still left on the transfer market. This morning, reporter Joe Giglio of the Raleigh News & Observer dropped a noteworthy tidbit that said the 6-foot-4 shooting guard might end up re-surfacing at one of Duke's former conference rivals.

This is interesting news, particularly if Sulaimon obtains his degree from Duke this summer and matriculates somewhere as a graduate transfer. In that case, he' be immediately eligible, and would be a major addition for any team, especially one like Maryland which is already talent-laden. 

Not to mention, it would make for an incredibly juicy potential ACC/Big Ten Challenge match-up between the Blue Devils and Terps.
