Sophomore Jeremy Lamb and freshman center Andre Drummond announced earlier this month that they will enter this year's NBA draft. Junior Alex Oriakhi is transferring to Missouri.

Smith, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged just over four points and three rebounds in 33 games during his sophomore season. Bradley, a 6-10 redshirt freshman, was injured in the preseason and didn't play.
