Sophomore guard Elias Valtonen tweeted on Tuesday that he will be leaving the Arizona State Sun Devils’ men’s basketball team:

It is unknown at this time if Valtonen will attempt to transfer to another school or see the possibility of playing closer to his home of Finland in a professional league. He saw limited time in his freshman year only attempting nine field goals total. Valtonen saw more time this past season including a stretch where he started eight games during the non-conference season. He averaged 2.5 points in 2019-20 and scored a season-high 10 points against St. John’s.
