"He's transferring," a source close to the situation confirmed to TDD on Monday. "He's already let the coaches know."
The 6-foot-6, 230 pound California prospect appeared in 34 games this season where he averaged 5.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game while shooting 41% from the field and 38% from the perimeter.
King logged a career best 27 points against Eastern Kentucky in November as part of a five game stretch that saw him average 16.0 points per game. However, his playing time dipped substantially as the season progressed, rendering him scoreless in nine of his final 21 games. In total King logged six or fewer minutes in six of the team's final seven games.
Villanova and Gonzaga are thought to be the likeliest destinations for King.
