Forward/center Kenny Kadji has asked for, and been granted his release from the University of Florida basketball program head coach Billy Donovan announced Friday.

“After re-evaluating his situation, Kenny and I had the opportunity to sit down and talk about his future,” said Donovan. “Kenny has made a decision that it’s in his best interest to start new somewhere else. He’s still recovering from back surgery and working hard to get himself healthy. I wish him the best in his future.”

Kenny Kadji, who would have entered 2010-11 as a redshirt sophomore, was granted a medical redshirt for the 2009-10 season after averaging 1.0 points and 0.8 rebounds per game in eight games before having back surgery. Kadji appeared in 42 games in two years at UF, averaging 3.7 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.

“I want to thank my coaches and teammates for my two years at the University of Florida,” said Kadji. “While I’m sad that my time here at Florida is ending, UF will always be special to me. I have goals that I hope to reach and only a short window of my life to make those things happen.”
