Kalen Grimes of Missouri Earns Redemption, Will Play in Poland

Matt ThielSenior Analyst INovember 3, 2016

Former Tiger Kalen Grimes has signed a contract to play professional basketball in Poland.  The short article is a little ways down the page and somewhat hard to get to.  I'll post a more comprehensive one from MU's Official Sports Report for your convenience:

"Grimes’ new club has loaded up on American talent during the offseason.  In addition to the 6'9", 260-pound former Tiger, BPS has added former St. John’s point guard Erick Barkley, former Memphis Tiger and Toronto Raptors performer Chris Garner, and former Troy State standout Greg Davis.

Note to any future Tigers who might run into discipline problems someday in the future: This is how you respond to making a stupid mistake.  Kalen messed up and did something that was completely idiotic.  I think he'd be the first to admit that, and he knew he had consequences to face.

Mike Anderson made sure he was punished by suspending him for the season, but he didn't just slam the door on him by taking away his scholarship, which in all likelihood would have ended Grimes' career and his chances of earning a college degree.
