    Bolden Transferring

    It has been confirmed by our guys at 247 that Bolden is transferring, likely to either TCU, SMU, or Texas.

    I don't have much nice to say about this one... so, next move. Bamba sure would be nice.

    I don't know about hate. I don't understand this decision at all. Like I said, I hope he does well.

    Agreed - it's nothing personal - it's strictly business

    Here's the thing for me about transfers. It's not that I wish him ill, or anything. it's just that I cease to care. They no longer exist as anything other than one of the myriad good Division 1 college basketball players.

    So, like I said, I'm neither happy nor sad for him. I don't have anything against him. But to the extent I care, it's about the Duke Basketball program not the individual player.

    No hate here. Loved his potential, hope he finds his happiness.

    Sad, but not shocking. Things just didn't seem to work out for him this year. Hope he finds what he's looking for wherever he goes.

    Here's hoping that either:
    1) we get Bamba;
    2) Vrankovic and DeLaurier are ready to step up; or
    3) both (1) and (2)

    SO does this season officially become number 1 for most people lost in the offseason? Yikes.

    I'm just surprised that things went so poorly for him this year that he thinks he now needs 2 more years of college. From what we know, injuries pretty much robbed him of the whole season, even if he was technically healthy enough to play for some of it. Was his supposed draft really that shaky that he couldn't recover it next year?

    It seems like he got an unlucky draw this year. Hopefully things improve for him at his next stop.

    3 transfers announced in just the last 2 weeks, and all 3 are big men. Jefferson graduates, Giles enters the NBA Draft, and Jeter, Obi, and Marques all transferring. Who's gonna play the 5-spot in the middle next year? We better hope we get Bamba. And to think that Marques Bolden was expected to be a one-and-done player at the start of the season. I do wish him the best in his future endeavors.

    What's surprising, if not shocking: Bolden hoped to be a one-and-done. Now he's got to sit out a year and then play another season for someone else, meaning he'll be at least three years in. His fastest path to the NBA was to come back to Duke and play reasonably well next year.

    Not Official

    According to Adam Rowe, the decision has not been officially made. The coaches have not been told he's transferring. That is still what is expected to happen, but he's not officially gone.

    Would be really weird to come back at this point. Chronicle reported it already too.

    Just seems like transferring is taking the easy way out in today's game. Yea your freshmen year didn't pan out perfectly, lace em up get better in the off-season and play next year. Transfers across the board are becoming too frequent in college ball. Kind of disheartening.
