Why? Vazquez wants to finish his degree in a–hole studies.
Austin Daye, F, Gonzaga: Leaving
Why? After watching former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison win a title with the Lakers, Daye knew he was capable of making the jump.
Jrue Holiday, G, UCLA: Leaving
Why? Holiday says he needs the money so he can pay the court fees required to legally change his first name to something real.
Scottie Reynolds, G, Villanova: Staying
