"Cartier has informed me of his desire to rest his pro basketball opportunities with the option to transfer to another school for his final season of eligibility," Weber said, according to KSN News' Kendra Melinda. "I'm supportive of Cartier's decision and appreciate the time he has given this program the last four years. He has been a part of many great moments here."
