Slazinski is the third Louisville player to leave the program this offseason via the portal, all from the same 2019 class: center Aigan Igiehon and guard Josh Nickelberry.
Louisville sophomore forward Quinn Slazinski (6.2) has entered the transfer portal, a source extremely close to the portal told @Stadium.

A 6-foot-8 forward from Houston, Slazinski appeared in 35 games across two seasons (8 starts). During the 2020-21 season, Slazinski played in 25 games (21.1 minutes); he averaged 6.2 points and 3.6 rebounds per game.
Slazinski came billed as a stretch-forward, and he has a good stroke. However, he struggled to find the range this season: 11-of-47 3PA (23.4 3P%).
Louisville is also very deep at the 3 and 4 for next season; playing time would’ve been hard for Slazinski to find, consistently. Matt Cross arrived via a transfer from Miami; rising junior Samuell Williamson is another talent. With Malik Williams back, Jae’Lyn Withers may have to play more at the 4 next season. JJ Traynor factors into these discussions, too.
The same can be said for Dre Davis, who can essentially play the 2-4 for the Cards.
With Slazinki gone, Louisville now has two available scholarships for the 2020-21 season. Chris Mack could choose to be active and add more players to his roster.
