“5 incredible years,” Baker wrote on social media. “(Duke and Michigan), thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me the opportunities to live out my dream. Coach K and Coach Howard, thank you for pushing me and making me a better man. To all my brothers I've met along the way, I got y'all for life!!! The journey continues.”

Bottom Line: Baker is moving on

During his one season at Michigan, Baker was an important player off the bench as he played 34 games, averaging 16.4 minutes, 5.7 points, and 2.2 rebounds per game. Additionally, he displayed a strong shooting performance, hitting 39.1 percent of his shots from beyond the arc. When Jett Howard was injured, Baker stepped in as a starter. The Wolverines will certainly look different during the 2023-24 season.
