Indiana expected to contact transfer Lee

Temple's Anthony Lee will transfer for his final season, and is eligible to play immediately. Sources tell AllHoosiers.com Indiana will be involved.

UPDATE 7:00 p.m.: According to ESPN's Jeff Goodman and CBS' Jeff Borzello, a number of teams have already inquired about Lee. Those schools include: Butler, Maryland, Iowa, Florida, Notre Dame, Illinois, Iowa State, Ole Miss, St. John's, Providence, Seton Hall and Arizona. And, well, of course Indiana as well.

Temple forward Anthony Lee will transfer for his final season of college basketball, as first reported by CBSSports.com. Lee will be eligible to play right away because of the graduate transfer rule, and sources tell AllHoosiers.com that Indiana will be involved.

Lee, a 6-foot-9, 230-pound forward, averaged 13.6 points and 8.6 rebounds in 31.1 minutes for the Owls last season. During his sophomore year, he averaged 9.8 points and 6.8 rebounds in 23.9 minutes per game.

Lee is expected to be contacted by a number of high-major programs since he will be able to play immediately, and IU will be one of them. The Hoosiers are in desperate need of another solid big man with Noah Vonleh expected to leave for the NBA Draft.

Schools are not allowed to contact Lee yet, but when they are permitted to do so, Indiana will reach out to gauge interest.

We will have more on this story as it develops over the next few days.
