Michigan State basketball: Forward Thomas Kithier entering transfer portal

Thomas Kithier became the third Michigan State basketball player to enter the NCAA transfer portal since the season ended.

Kithier's name appeared Tuesday morning. The junior from Clarkston joins Jack Hoiberg (headed to Texas-Arlington) and Rocket Watts (undecided) as players to enter the portal since the Spartans' lost to UCLA in the NCAA tournament to finish 15-13.

Kithier has two years to play with the COVID-19 waiver, and he remains a viable Big Ten bench option in a limited capacity.

The 6-foot-8, 230-pound forward, averaged 2.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 10.
