Correct. He started 56 games in his first two years, averaged over 30 minutes a game down the stretch, he's the team's best defensive player, and there's no hotshot freshman or something coming in hot to steal the role. LM was a lock to hang onto that starting role at SG and get a solid 25+ minutes a game.
Which is why I don't really agree with some of the comments about "hey, transfers happen in college basketball". Yes, they do...but when someone who isn't a freshman transfers, it's typically (1) a player clearly moving up the food chain (e.g., Towns going from Harvard to Ohio State or Duke), (2) a player who wasn't getting much playing time in the first place, or (3) a player who has played a lot but got recruited over and sees the writing on the wall. None of those apply here.
