An offseason of change for the Michigan State Spartans got even change-ier Saturday.
Redshirt sophomore forward Kenny Kaminski announced via Twitter that he won't be returning to East Lansing next season.
I am no longer going to play at Michigan State, I will be transferring to another school but have not decided where yet— Kenny Kaminski (@KennyKaminski) August 2, 2014

Kaminski played in 31 games for Michigan State last season, starting three. He averaged 4.9 points per game and 1.5 rebounds per game. He had three double-digit-point performances against Minnesota, Penn State and Georgetown. He made five 3-pointers in two of those games. He established himself as a shooter, with his 51-percent field-goal percentage ranking as one of the highest on the team and his 49.4-percent 3-point percentage the best on the team.
Kaminski's departure hurts the Spartans at forward and is just the latest bit of upheaval following the losses of Adreian Payne and Gary Harris to the NBA and Keith Appling to the professional ranks, as well. It puts a big burden on returning big men Branden Dawson and Matt Costello.
In addition to those high-profile departures, the Spartans welcome in plenty of new faces like transfers Eron Harris and Bryn Forbes — both guards — and freshmen Lourawls Narin and Javon Bess.
