The Oklahoma State Cowboys are working on assembling their 2023-24 men’s basketball roster and we’ll track every move here throughout the offseason.
G Caleb Asberry: He said on social media after the season that his playing career was over. Asberry averaged 9.7 points last season.
G Avery Anderson III: He missed the end of the season with an injury, but remained one of the team’s top scorers, averaging 11.1 points. After the season he put his name in the transfer portal and went to Big 12 rival TCU.
F Kalib Boone: At times Boone was the Cowboys’ best forward. But his play fell off at the end of the season. He averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds. After the season he transferred to UNLV.
G Woody Newton: The Syracuse transfer became a vital part of the Cowboys’ rotation in February and eventually averaged 4.3 points and 3.4 rebounds. He transferred to George Mason after the season.
F Tyreek Smith: Like several other Cowboys, he’s transferring for the second time. He started his career at Texas Tech and he’ll be at SMU next season. He averaged 5.2 points and 4.4 rebounds last season.
F Bernard Kouma: The little-used forward ran out of eligibility.
In the Transfer Portal
G Chris Harris Jr.: He suffered a torn ACL at the Big 12 Tournament and missed the Cowboys’ NIT run. After the season he submitted his name for the transfer portal.
