Wooten Announces that he will not return to Oregon

May 19, 2019

It’s been an off-season to forget for Dana Altman. Bol Bol and Louis King have declared for the NBA draft and Miles Norris has elected to transfer. 

And now he just got hit with another piece of tough news. Junior forward Kenny Wooten took to Instagram late Sunday night and announced that he will not return to Oregon, instead opting to head to the NBA. 

While Oregon awaits the decision of Peyton Pritchard, Dana Altman has some serious holes to fill on his roster. Wooten was a key to Oregon’s success late in the season that saw the Ducks make a run thorugh the Pac-12 tournament and into March Madness.

Wooten could always change his mind and not follow through with his Instagram declaration.
