Ex-Georgia PG Sahvir Wheeler transferring to Kentucky

Former Georgia point guard Sahvir Wheeler is staying in the SEC and transferring to Kentucky, he announced on social media Monday.

Wheeler announced on April 20 that he was entering the transfer portal and testing the NBA draft waters.

The 5-foot-10 sophomore averaged a team-high 14.0 points and an SEC-leading 7.4 assists last season with the Bulldogs. He added 3.8 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game and made the all-conference second team.

Wildcats coach John Calipari responded to the news on Twitter.

“(He) is the kind of player that dictates the pace of the game, who gets easy baskets for himself and his teammates, and who can be disruptive defensively,” Calipari wrote. “He is what you look for in a PG in that he puts his teammates in positions to score, yet can score the ball in bunches.”

Wheeler played in 57 games (43 starts) in two seasons in Athens, averaging 11.3 points, 5.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 30.8 minutes.
