Guerrier is also testing the NBA Draft waters as he explores his transfer options.
“I have spent time reflecting on what’s next for me and my career, and I have decided to enter the transfer portal while still testing the waters of the NBA Draft,” Guerrier announced last week. “The decision has definitely not been an easy one, and I cannot thank my family at Syracuse enough for their support the past two years. Thank you to Coach Boeheim for the mentorship, and to my teammates, y’all will always be family.”
In 28 games for the Orange this past season, Guerrier averaged 13.7 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per contest, along with shooting 49.3% from the field overall and 31.1% from three. The 6-foot-7, 220-pound forward finished in double figures 21 times as a sophomore, including four 20-point performances and eight double-doubles.
The rising junior forward is a native of Montreal, Quebec, suiting up for Thetford Academy (Quebec) leading up to his time at Syracuse.
