I don't expect Thomas to come back. I think at this point I don't know how high he can go. If he is a second round pick this year he may be able to move into the first round. Thomas will get drafted because of his offensive abilities. The question Thomas will have to ask himself is, is being a 2nd rounder this year better than being a 2nd rounder next year with a degree? DT should make a very nice living playing basketball, whether its in the NBA or in Europe.
