It’s been a rocky couple of months for the junior guard. Less than two weeks ago, Wainright was suspended indefinitely after he was arrested. Wainright was charged two felonies, including fleeing and eluding and obstruction back on April 3rd. In February, his car was linked to a road rage incident, which resulted in the eventual arrest.
Head coach Bruce Weber said in a statement, “We appreciate Amaad’s contributions to our basketball program and wish him the best of luck as he pursues his playing career elsewhere.”
Wainright was transfer from Trinity Community College and in his lone season with the Wildcats he averaged 2.8 ppg and 2.3 rpg, while shooting 44.7% from the field.
