Transfer Portal tracker: Mountain West basketball
LARAMIE -- It's transfer portal season.
Jeff Linder's Cowboys have already seen five players leave the program: John Grigsby, Deng Dut, Ben Bowen and Eoin Nelson. Three-point specialist Drake Jeffries also announced he will not return to the program for the 2022-23 campaign. He intends to play professionally.
Wyoming's second-year head coach replaced those guys with a trio of PAC-12 players. He snagged points guard Ethan Anderson and Max Agbonkpolo from USC and Jake Kyman from across town at UCLA.

Hunter Maldonado, the senior most UW fans have been waiting on, announced March 22 that he will test the NBA waters and go through the evaluation process. If he doesn't like what he hears, however, the most-tenured Poke has left the door cracked for a potential return to the high plains of Laramie for a sixth season.
Hunter Thompson also announced he will be back in brown and gold in 2022-23.
Other high-profile names around the league going through the NBA Draft process are: David Roddy (Colorado State), Marcus Shaver Jr. (Boise State), Emmanuel Akot (Boise State) and Orlando Robinson (Fresno State).
