“Kendall has asked for his release to explore the possibility of transferring, but he remains a member of our team and the door remains open for his return,” said Painter in a statement.

Stephens sank 38 3-pointers this past season and averaged 6.1 points in helping lead Purdue to a 26-9 overall record and a spot in the NCAA Tournament.
