Former Blue Demon Looking to Turn Pro

Former DePaul Men's Basketball player Jamal Nichols is in search of a new place to showcase his basketball skills. Nichols, who left DePaul after his junior season, looked into transferring to Division II and NAIA universities in his home state of Pennsylvania at first. For whatever reason, Nichols chose to leave the college ranks behind and turn professional.

Nichols is now back in his hometown of Philadelphia and has been working out with the 76ers. He is in search of a team to play professionally for overseas.

Nichols is a 6-8 235 lb. forward. He is the half brother of the Memphis Grizzlies Hakim Warrick.

Jamal Nichols has moved around throughout his career. He started out at St. Joseph's University in the fall of 2001 where he did not see action as a redshirt freshman. He transferred to Riverside Community College in California in 2002. A year later he transferred to Globe Tech junior college in New York. After just one season at DePaul, Nichols again finds himself looking for a new place to play.

Nichols averaged 3.5 points per game and 3.3 rebounds per game in 14 minutes of play for the Blue Demons last season.
