Washington guard Isaiah Thomas said after the Huskies’ 86-83 loss to North Carolina that he plans to return for his senior season instead of declaring for the NBA draft.
“Love my teammates. Sucks we lost but God has a plan! Thanks 2 all the people who believed in us. I will be back NXT yr so don’t worry,” he tweeted.
Thomas also told King 5’s Chris Egan that he’ll be back, though Percy Allen of The Seattle Times reports that Thomas gave some noncommittal answers when asked repeatedly after the game about his future.
Thomas said on the Kevin Calabro show in January that he would consider leaving Washington a year early for the NBA if he thought he would be taken high enough.
He led Washington this season in scoring (16.9 ppg) and assists (6 apg). His 1,721 career points are sixth-most in school history.
