St. John's junior guards Posh Alexander and Dylan Addae-Wusu will transfer, the fourth and fifth players to depart the program since Rick Pitino was named new coach, the New York Post and independent journalist Adam Zagoria reported Wednesday.

The pair will join freshman guards AJ Storr and Kolby King, and sophomore forward O'Mar Stanley in the transfer portal, per Tuesday reports.

Alexander is by far the most decorated of the group. He averaged 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game in 30 games (28 starts) for St. John's in the 2022-23 season. It's unclear if he was welcome to stay under the new regime of Pitino, who made clear he would be overhauling the roster.

Alexander averaged 11.7 points and 4.7 assists in 84 career games (77 starts) in three seasons for the Red Storm.

Addae-Wusu averaged 9.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in 32 games (19 starts) this past season. The 6-foot-4 Addae-Wusu played in 91 career games (34 starts) in three seasons in New York, averaging 8.2 points.

Pitino was hired earlier this month to replace Mike Anderson, who went 68-56 in four seasons at St. John's. The Red Storm finished 18-15 this season and never made the NCAA Tournament during Anderson's tenure.
