Nembhard averaged 11.2 points, 5.6 assists, and 3 rebounds per game as a true sophomore at Florida.
The Canadian National Team member was a five-star prospect out of Montverde Academy and started all 67 games over the last two years.
The Gators still have options at the point, including Tre Mann, who is exploring his options in the NBA Draft. Tyree Appleby is an exciting player who averaged 17.2 points at Cleveland State in 2018-19 before transferring. Florida also has sophomore Ques Glover in the mix who saw significant time backing up Nembhard.
UPDATE: Adam Zagoria is reporting that Tre Mann will return to Florida next season, clearing up the Gators’ depth chart in the backcourt.
