Not sure if the staff would be interested in bringing him here, rumors are he got in trouble with something alcohol related (keep in mind this just rumors).

I know the first thing people are going to look at is he stats, I can't think of a better example of stats not telling the whole story. Gabe was an energy guy, kinda like a Draymond Green, when he got on the court the team just played with so much more pep. He was by far the best on ball defender at the forward position and he led the team in charges taken, he just hounds guys on the defensive end. Gabe actually earned his way into the starting lineup the last few games of the season. He was one of the guys I was most excited about returning, I thought all signs were leading to him having a breakout year this coming season. Also, another quality about Gabe is he's extremely versatile, he can legit guard positions 2-5. CMA frequently had him guarding the other team's 5 and just have him get under their skin, he's athletic and has long enough reach where he doesn't give up much at all playing at the 4 or 5.

If CMA checks out what happened to him for his dismissal and it wasn't anything that serious, I think he'd be a good pick-up this late in the game, if they can't find a quality big that that's eligible this season. If Gabe came here, I have little doubt that he'd either start or play major minutes here next year, he can play.

Re: above post
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — Arkansas has dismissed forward Gabe Osabuohien from the men’s basketball program.

Coach Eric Musselman announced the move Thursday without disclosing the reason.

“We have set a level of expectations for our student-athletes on and off the court,” Musselman said. “After discussions with Gabe, it was decided that it would be best to part ways. We thank him for his time at Arkansas and wish him well.”

The 6-foot-8 Osabuohien was born in Toronto but played at Little Rock’s Southwest Christian Academy. He played in 54 games with eight starts in two seasons with Arkansas. He scored 128 points (2.4 per game) and had 136 rebounds (2.5).

Does a player that gets kicked off his team have to sit out a year?

Yes he still has to transfer. But that would be an interesting scenario.

Hey coach, I'm not feeling it here but I don't want to sit out a year. Please kick me off the team...

He could argue that new coach wanted his own players and squeezed him out over something he shouldn't have been squeezed out for.
