A former Kansas Jayhawks men's basketball star is reportedly being released.

According to a report from The Athletic's Shams Charania, the Toronto Raptors are parting ways with ex-Jayhawks star Sviatoslav "Svi" Mykhailiuk.

Mykhailiuk will be seeking a new NBA home.

"The Toronto Raptors are waiving forward Svi Mykhailiuk, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Mykhailiuk, who's currently playing for Ukraine's national team at FIBA EuroBasket, is seeking a fresh start elsewhere," Charania reports.

The former Kansas star has been in the league since the 2018-19 season. 

He's played for the Lakers, Pistons, Thunder and Raptors, averaging 6.6 points and 1.8 rebounds over the course of his professional career.
