DeVante’ Jones will be betting Michigan basketball this season.

The graduate transfer guard revealed Monday he has actually withdrawn from the 2021 NBA draft and will play another season of college basketball.

Previously this offseason, Jones revealed he was moving from Coastal Carolina to Michigan. At the exact same time, his name remained in the draft, with the alternative to return.

Jones ultimately took part in the G League Elite Camp (along with Hunter Dickinson and previous Michigan gamers Mike Smith and Chaundee Brown). He was not welcomed to the draft integrate.

Last season, Jones balanced 19.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.9 helps and 2.8 takes for Coastal Carolina. He shot 48.7% from the field and 36.8% from 3-point variety.

Monday’s statement suggests Michigan will have a lot of experience in the backcourt. Previously this offseason, guard Eli Brooks selected to make the most of the complimentary year of eligibility approved by the NCAA to all winter season professional athletes. In between the 2, Brooks and Jones have actually appeared in 206 profession college video games.

When it comes to the draft, Dickinson has yet to openly reveal whether he will go back to Ann Arbor or stay in the draft. The due date for withdrawal is July 7 .
