Katin Reinhardt expected to transfer from UNLV

USA TODAY Sports

Despite a promising freshman season at UNLV, Katin Reinhardt is expected to transfer to a West Coast school.

The UNLV Runnin' Rebels basketball squad has already lost three players -- Mike Moser to transfer, Anthony Marshall and Anthony Bennett to the NBA Draft -- but now they are about to lose their fourth player. Freshman Katin Reinhardt is reportedly on his way out and is expected to make the move after the holiday weekend:

Reinhardt was a key player in UNLV's success this past season, he averaged 10.1 points, 2.5 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game. However, he still needed to work on getting his shooting percentage above 40 percent from the field.

Part of the reason that Reinhardt is deciding to transfer is that he will not have as much of an opportunity to be the primary ball handler next season. UNLV still hasDaquan Cook and Bryce Dejean-Jones, and then they add freshman Dantley Walker, who joins the program after returning from his LDS mission, plus junior college transfer Deville Smith, freshman Kendall Smith and transfer Jelan Kendrick.

Dave Rice has plenty of talent at the guard positions even with Reinhardt most likely on his way out. Just seems that Reinhardt wanted more playing time handling the ball, but last season he averaged nearly 30 minutes per game.
