Former Kansas State Forward Arthur Kaluma Foregoes NBA Draft

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament East Regional-Florida Atlantic vs Kansas State

After competing in the 2024 NBA Draft Combine, former Kansas State forward Arthur Kaluma will return to college basketball in the 2024-25 season, as reported by ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.

Kaluma entered the transfer portal after playing one season with the Wildcats after playing his first two seasons at Creighton.

Last season, the 6-foot-7 forward averaged 14.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists. He also showed the ability to stretch the floor as well, improving his three-point shooting to 34.5%.


He can score the basketball at a high rate, as he reached 20 or more points in six contests last year, making him arguably the most intriguing prospect left in the transfer portal.

The former four-star prospect out of high school was named to the All-Big 12 Honorable Mention Team at Kansas State this past season.

Head Coach Jerome Tang and the Wildcats are looking to get back to the Big Dance after missing it last season with a record of 19-15, one year after reaching the Elite 8.

It is uncertain who Kaluma will suit up for next season, but several Power Five programs are expected to be in the mix for the former Wildcat in his final season of eligibility.
