Nevada head coach Eric Musselman made two more additions to his roster today as Purdue transfer Kendall Stephens and Iowa State transfer Hallice Cooke both committed to the Wolf Pack.

Stephens was supposed to be one of the best shooters on Purdue’s roster this season, but he missed some time in the middle of the season due to the death of a friend and never found his way back into the rotation. He averaged a career-low 6.2 points and shot just 31 percent from three, also a career-low. He’ll sit out the 2016-17 season and have one year of eligibility remaining.

Cooke spent last season at Iowa State after redshirting a year following a transfer from Oregon State. As a freshman with the Beavers, Cooke averaged 8.2 points and shot 45.6 percent from three. Last season with the Cyclones, he managed just over 10 minutes per game.

Like Stephens, Cooke has to sit a year and will have one season of eligibility remaining.
