Detroit Transfer Jason Calliste Is A Big Addition To the Oregon Ducks

With the amount of talent that the Oregon Ducks lost, they sure have done work during this offseason. UNLV transfer Mike Moser was a huge pickup and the Ducks just added another great transfer in Jason Calliste, according to CBS Sports.

The Ducks are nowhere near the favorites to win the Pac-12 Conference, but they very well could make a lot of noise in the 2013-14 college basketball season.

Calliste previously played for Detroit. He managed to average 14.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game last season. He also shot 38.9 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from behind the arc. With those kinds of stats, Calliste should make an instant impact for Oregon. To add to that, he also averaged 1.3 steals per game.

He is a great player and the Ducks are lucky to land him this late in the game.

Assuming that Moser returns to his old ways and Calliste is able to pickup where he left off at Detroit, Oregon could easily find its way in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Even though Arizona has been getting a bunch of hype during the offseason and Colorado will basically have the same team and could win a conference title, people should not sleep on the Ducks.

The team will look different in the upcoming season, but Oregon did win 28 games last year. It also made the dance as a No. 12 seed, but still managed to make the Sweet 16.

Calliste is a great addition to the team and the Ducks will be that much better as a result of him joining.
