Creighton guard Khyri Thomas is declaring for the 2018 NBA Draft but he will not sign with an agent, according to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
The 6-foot-3 Thomas was one of college basketball’s breakout players during the 2017-18 season as he helped the Bluejays to the NCAA tournament. A solid player on both sides of the ball, Thomas averaged 15.1 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game this season while shooting 53 percent from the floor and 41 percent from three-point range.
An intriguing draft prospect because of a 6-foot-10 wingspan that allows him to play a bit bigger, Thomas could be a potential first-round pick if he works out well for NBA teams. If Thomas returns to Creighton, however, they’d have a very solid foundation to make another run at the NCAA tournament.
Thomas deciding on his future draft status will be one of the more intriguing storylines to follow the next several weeks.
