Sources have confirmed that Stony Brook forwards Scott King and Chris Braley will transfer out of the program at the end of the semester.
An extremely extremely long and athletic stretch-four with the ability to knock down shots from behind the arc 6’10”, King never really put it together on the court, averaging just 3.1 points and 1.2 rebounds per game over his career. As a red-shirt junior, King saw his playing time and touches decrease, averaging career-lows of 7.9 minutes and 3.0 points per game. King will graduate this summer and be eligible immediately as a graduate transfer.
An extremely strong and physical forward, at 6’5”, Braley brought toughness and rebounding to the floor, but struggled to carve out a niche. Recruited for his 3-point shooting, Braley struggled to find his stroke, hitting just 26.3 percent of his threes over his first two seasons, including just 21.1 percent as a sophomore during the past season. Should he transfer to another Division I program, Braley will have to sit out the 2015-2016 season per NCAA transfer rules, but can play immediately if he transfers to a lower division.
Both King and Braley were blocked from above on the Seawolves’ depth chart by two-time conference player of the year Jameel Warney, as well as forwards Rayshaun McGrew, Roland Nyama, Tyrell Sturdivant and Jakob Petrus.
