Adonis Thomas plans to sign with an agent and declare for the NBA draft.

Thomas, a 6-foot-7, 240-pound forward, averaged 11.7 points and 4.5 rebounds for Memphis this season.

"I think he'll have a long career in the NBA. He's gonna do great. I'm excited to put his life-size picture up in the Finch Center, our practice facility, with him wearing that NBA uniform," Tigers coach Josh Pastner said of Thomas. "He's going to have a great, long career. He's a very good player, but his character is at the very, very highest level.

"I will always support the decision, so I believe it's the right decision for Adonis and I'm going to back him 100 percent."
