According to multiple media reports, two SIU Edwardsville players, Charles Joy and Michael Birts, are leaving the program.
Neither player has currently signed with a new team.
These transfers aren’t especially surprising. Both Joy and Birts saw there minutes decline from their freshman year, and the two combined for 30 points on the season.
Joy has seen more minutes late in the year, after the suspension of Jerome Jones, and would have likely seen even more minutes in 2013-14.
With the news of these transfers, there will be more new players on next year’s roster than returning. With five players graduating, just six of the 13 players on last year’s roster are returning.
Both players should have two years of eligibility remaining with their new teams.
