Cameron Thomas has just become the SEC’s latest one-and-done player.
On Thursday, Thomas announced he will be “declaring for the 2021 NBA draft and intend to sign with an agent.”
This news comes after Thomas was named to the All-SEC freshman team after averaging 23 points per game, 3.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists a game for LSU. USA Today named Thomas the SEC’s Newcomer of the Year.
