Izzo Makes It Clear Kaminski Was Dismissed, Did Not Just Choose To Transfer

CBS DETROIT – Michigan State sophomore Kenny Kaminski tweeted Saturday that he would no longer play basketball for the Spartans and planned to transfer, and Monday the Spartans released a statement that explained why Kaminski would not be returning.

“Despite multiple opportunities, Kenny Kaminski could not live up to the obligations necessary to be a part of our program,” Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo said in the statement, according to multiple reports. “Being a Spartan is a special opportunity, and at Michigan State we do everything we can to provide an amazing experience for our student-athletes. With that privilege also comes a responsibility to conduct oneself in a certain manner. After he repeatedly failed to meet the necessary obligations, it became apparent that it was time to dismiss Kenny from the program.”

Kaminski averaged 4.9 points and 1.5 rebounds in 12.2 minutes per game last season, and he shot 49.4 percent from beyond the arc.
