Tracking the Pac-12 transfers

While Washington added a very important recruit in German forward Martin Breunig on Saturday, cross-state rival Washington State lost backup guard Andre Winston Jr.
The former Lakes High star was the 3A co-Player of the Year and the latest in a long line of Tacoma-area guards to explode on the scene. However, he averaged just 0.6 points and 0.5 rebounds in 6.2 minutes last season as a freshman.
Winston originally signed with James Madison, but the Cougars were able to snag him after his stellar performance in the 2010 3A state tournament. He led Lakes to a third-place finish, broke the tourney scoring record and won the tournament’s MVP award. He also averaged 20.8 points, 3.6 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals as a senior.
Winston’s decision isn’t a surprise in Pullman. In fact the move has been expected for some time. He became frustrated with his backup role and the Cougars would have been over the scholarship limit if everyone returned for the 2011-12 season.
WSU is now at the 13 limit, but former Rainier Beach star Mike Ladd, is slated to receive a scholarship. He redshirted last season after transferring from Fresno State.

— Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott held conference meetings in Seattle this weekend to discus the new Pac-12 Network. Some media analysts predict the network could be profitable in five years and generate as much as $1 billion for the league over a 10-year period. According to the Daily Camera, Scott has studied the NFL Network, the Yes Network for the New York Yankees, the Major League Baseball Network. There’s talk the network will offer academic and music programming and not just sports. There’s also talk the conference may partner with Fox Sports.
— The Arizona Daily Star details Arizona’s coaching staff salaries. These figures will likely increase once the school finalizes coach Sean Miller’s new contract.
— UCLA freshman Joshua Smith is tabbed by the Sporting News as one of four players who may have a breakout year next season.
— While Washington senior Matthew Bryan-Amaning worked out with the New York Knicks, Justin Holiday and junior Isaiah Thomas were in Sacramento on Saturday. Here’s a snippet of their workout (below).
Thomas participated in the NBA combine, but this was his first workout with a will workout with NBA team. He heads to Portland on Monday and Toronto on Tuesday. Thomas is also scheduled to work out with Dallas, Miami, Chicago, the Lakers, Memphis and Boston before the June 23 draft. He hopes to “sneak into” the bottom of the first round or early in the second. He said: “You only need one team to fall in love with you. I’m going to work hard in every one of my workouts and get somebody to fall in love.”
Meanwhile, Holiday has been active since the UW season ended. Saturday’s workout was his fourth with a NBA team. He’s worked out for Lakers, Denver and Detroit. Holiday hopes his skills on the defensive end and an improved jump shot will attract a team to use a draft pick on him.
