The #1 transfer left in the Portal, Andrew Nembhard heads to Spokane to play for Mark Few. He averaged 11.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 1.1 steals per game for Florida this past season. He shot 44% from-the-field which is pretty solid, but he also shot a forgettable 30% from deep. He’s a 6’5″ pure point guard who made a surprising decision to transfer after testing the NBA Waters for two straight seasons, which is not something you see often for a guy like Nembhard, who was pretty good at Florida and a highly touted recruit transfer. I doubt he even applies for a waiver, I don’t think he has any kind of case, he’s from Canada, but his hometown is closer to Gainsville than it is Spokane. Since he won’t play this season, I’ll show what they should look like in 2021-22, and no I’m not including Chet Holmgren or Paolo Banchero who aren’t committed to the school.
PG- Andrew Nembhard (Florida)

PF- Drew Timme
C- Filip Petrusev

Additions: Andrew Nembhard, Kaden Perry
Obviously we’re 17 months away from a 2021-22 season, but this team is already ranked number-one in my non-existent 2021-22 rankings, hard to imagine anyone being better honestly. And yes, I think Petrusev stays, he’s a great college player, but he won’t be a draft pick at the next level more than likely, so unless he decides to go overseas he might be better off finishing his college career. Obviously, as of now then only have Kaden Perry from the 2021 class, I’m sure they’ll expand on that, we’ll see with who but I don’t think it’s Holmgren or Banchero. Maybe they head to the transfer market more this offseason whenever this season happens. Mark Few is a big transfer fan and is now a capable recruiter, so I doubt this will be the final rotation going into that season.
