Nevada basketball sharpshooter Jazz Johnson has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, a move that was first reported by Stadium's Jeff Goodman and confirmed by Nevada Sport Net.

The senior-to-be told NSN'a Julian Del Gaudio it's, "only natural to see what my options are after a coaching change. It doesn't mean I am leaving."

Johnson averaged 11 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists this year, appearing in all but one game, which he missed with the shoulder injury. He was named the Mountain West sixth man of the year by the coaches and media.

The Lake Oswego native went on to say, "I really do love this community and don't want them to think this means I'm gone. Only doing what's best for my future."

Johnson underwent his second shoulder surgery on his shooting shoulder since arriving at Nevada in early April. The most recent surgery isn't expected to affect his availability for next season. If Johnson's graduated this summer, he could move to a new school without having to sit out a season.

Johnson is the third Wolf Pack player to enter the transfer portal this offseason, joining walk-ons JoJo Anderson and Jalen Townsell, who both made the move prior to Eric Musselman's departure for Arkansas.
