Report: Quentin Grimes is returning to Houston for 2020-21 season

Guard Quentin Grimes won’t test the NBA waters this summer and will return to the Cougars for his junior season in 2020-21, CBS Sports reported on Sunday afternoon.

Quentin Grimes’ father, Marshall Grimes, told him that the 6-foot-5 native from The Woodlands will not go through the NBA Draft process, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

Quentin Grimes declared for the 2019 NBA Draft after one season as a freshman with Kansas before transferring to Houston last summer.

After Houston’s last game of the season, a 64-57 win against Memphis, head coach Kelvin Sampson was confident that the sophomore guard was only going to get better as the Cougars were preparing for a conference tournament and the NCAA March Madness that never happened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
