Isaiah Thomas announced Thursday that he will enter his name in the NBA Draft. Through a statement, the junior guard suggested he has no plans to return to Washington even though he said he will not hire an agent "at this time."
"Although it was a tough decision, I have decided to forego my senior season and enter my name into this year’s NBA Draft," Thomas said. "Over the past three years I've enjoyed every single minute of my Washington Husky career. I am very thankful to have played for a great coach like Coach [Lorenzo] Romar and our entire coaching staff. I have just over two quarters left to earn my degree, and I fully plan on finishing school. Also, I would like to take the time to thank all of my teammates and Husky fans for their support and the unforgettable memories."
Thomas averaged 16.8 points and 6.1 assists for the Huskies this season.
"Isaiah Thomas has had an unbelievable impact on our program during his time with us," Romar said. "We will definitely miss him, but we are behind him in his quest to fulfill a lifelong dream to play in the NBA."
