He wanted more playing time.

He was caught in the youth movement. Brey mentioned this on his radio show on Thursday that he wanted a bigger and more consistent role. Not saying I agree with Burns leaving but I understand his logic.

He played only 3 mins vs William and Mary, which was just 2 games after his breakout game of 15 pts vs Chicago State. I think he might've seen the writing on the wall with Durham and Nate being the long term guys and staff investing more in them.
