The ongoing saga involving Cam’Ron Fletcher and the Kentucky men’s basketball program has reached a new chapter.

About three months ago, Fletcher showed frustration on the bench during UK’s game against North Carolina. Then coach John Calipari announced a short time later that, “We have asked Cam Fletcher to take some time and step away from the team. He needs to reflect and do some soul searching to get his priorities in order.”

The Fletcher development was one of the first signs that UK was in trouble this season. At the time, it came during rough start and five-game losing streak, which was the first time since Calipari became coach in 2009 and it marked the program’s worst start since the 1926-1927 season.

Now comes news from Jeff Borzello of ESPN, who reported, “Fletcher has entered the transfer portal, sources told ESPN. Former ESPN 100 prospect played nine games this season for the Wildcats.”

Once Fletcher returned to the team from his time away, he didn’t receive a consistent role on the team, and this development is not a surprise.

The 6-foot-6, 215-pound forward from St. Louis had a reported 29 offers, and was the No. 70-ranked player in the Class of 2020, according to the 247Sports Composite. Michigan State was among the teams he considered before he chose Kentucky.
