KJ left Memphis with his brother, Dedric, after Tubby Smith let his father go from a position in the Athletic Department. However, he wasn’t getting as much time as he wanted with Kansas this past season. At Memphis, he was pretty good though as he averaged double figures and gave Houston fits.
I doubt he comes here, but he’s out there now.
“K.J. will graduate this spring and will transfer as a graduate transfer,” Self said of Lawson, who will earn his liberal arts and sciences degree from KU in May and will be eligible next season. “We appreciate his time and efforts at KU and wish him the best moving forward.”
A transfer from Memphis after the 2016-17 season, Lawson sat out 2017-18 due to transfer rules and practiced with the Jayhawks as they made a run to the 2018 Final Four.
