Cincinnati has landed Butler transfer Simas Lukosius as it heads into the Big 12 Conference next season.
The 6-foot-6 sophomore from Lithuania averaged 11.6 points and 4.0 rebounds while shooting 43% and 38% from deep last season.
“I think Cincinnati is a great fit for my play style and my personality,” Lukosius told ESPN. “I am excited to play for coach Wes Miller and really believe we can achieve special things together.”
Lukosius is the third transfer for Cincinnati as it changes leagues, joining Jamille Reynolds (Temple) and C.J. Fredrick (Kentucky).
Cincinnati will also bring in four-stars Jizzle James and Rayvon Griffith in their class of 2023.
