Arizona Wildcats forward Ira Lee has entered the transfer portal as a graduate transfer, according to reports.

The four-year player had his best season in 2018-19 when he averaged 6.6 points and 4.2 rebounds rebounds per game.

Since then, his minutes, field goal percentage, points and rebounds have all taken a dip.

Lee will have one year of eligibility remaining after completing his transfer.

He played his high school basketball at Crossroads High School in Santa Monica, California.

Lee was part of the same recruiting class as Phoenix Suns center Deandre Ayton and G-League player Brandon Randolph.

Emmanuel Akot (Boise State) and Alex Barcello (BYU) were also part of the recruiting class who transferred out of the program.

Arizona is not participating in the Pac-12 tournament this season due a self-imposed ban on post season activity as the NCAA process regarding alleged violations of misconduct plays out.
