After a few days of inactivity, the roster churn continues for Dennis Gates and his yet-to-be-named staff.
With Gates continually pursuing a wide variety of transfer and JUCO targets, many Tiger players are likely seeing the writing on the wall for their time in black and gold. DaJuan Gordon, a rising senior who arrived via the portal from Kansas State last offseason, is putting his name back in the portal following the firing of Cuonzo Martin.

Gordon was a key contributor in his only year as a Tiger, one of two players to start in every game he played. Gordon averaged 8.3 points per game in 24.5 minutes per game. As a scorer, Gordon improved under Martin, seeing his overall offensive rating and true shooting percentage go up. He became a bit more foul prone, however, and his rebounding and steal numbers went the wrong way.
The transfer means Gates has four scholarships to use for the 2022-2023 season.
Best of luck, Mr. Gordon! Thanks for your contributions to Ole Mizzou.
