There's been a discussion about The Transfer Portal in football and how often it's being used. There is no "portal" in basketball, but the number of players moving and leaving early is even a larger % based on roster sizes and the NBA draft.
This year over 800 players announced their intentions to transfer by April 25. 40% of players who get a Div1 scholarship coming out of high school, leave that school by their sophomore year. This year more than 80 underclassman declared for the NBA draft. A crazy number considering there are only 60 players chosen in the NBA draft and more and more foreign players are being drafted.
