After an underwhelming season at Kansas following his transfer from Memphis, guard K.J. Lawson has decided to transfer again. Based on the latest reports, there is no shortage of options for the 6-foot-8 sophomore.
According to The Kansas City Star, 11 different schools have reached out to Lawson about a possible transfer. On the list are a handful of Power Five schools: Oregon, Nebraska, Boston College, and Arkansas.
The list also includes Butler, Georgia State, San Diego, SMU, South Alabama, Tennessee State, and UAB.
The Star did point out one thing that could be a difference maker: K.J,’s brother Chandler Lawson is set to be a freshman at Oregon next season.

Lawson played one-and-a-half seasons for the Memphis Tigers before deciding to transfer at the end of the 2016-17 season. He spent a year on the sidelines before getting minutes off the bench for Bill Self’s side last year.
But in 35 games, Lawson did not make a single start and averaged less than 10 minutes per game. His final stat averages for the year were 3.1 points per game, and 2 rebounds per game.
Hopefully for him he will be evaluated based on his much more appealing 2016-17 stats: 12.3 points per game, 8.1 rebounds per game, and 2.8 assists per game in 33.7 minutes per game over 32 games.
