Whittington will play the upcoming season in the D-League, ESPN reports.
Whittington spent a season-and-a-half at Georgetown before being ruled academically ineligible in January 2013. He sat out the rest of the 2012-13 season and suffered a torn ACL in June. This past December, Whittington announced his intent to transfer from Georgetown, and he committed to Rutgers a few days later. Now, five months after the commitment, it appears Whittington has opted to try his luck in the D-League instead.
