One of the more inexplicable “will he or won’t he?” sagas with the regard to the 2014 NBA Draft has been going on surrounding Washington Huskies point guard Nigel Williams-Goss in recent days. However, it appears as if he has decided to return to school for a second season under Lorenzo Romar.
Nigel Williams-Goss returning to Washington for sophomore season after flirting a bit with thoughts of NBA Draft. Smart move by a smart kid.

As indicated by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, this is correct decision from Williams-Goss. At 6-foot-3, he has great size for a point guard (if he can prove that he’s able to play the position), but aside from that, there isn’t a ton in the way of appeal from an NBA perspective at this stage. For reference, ESPN lists Williams-Goss as the 178th player overall (not a misprint) and the 42nd point guard available to be drafted, and sites like Draft Express and NBADraft.net follow suit by basically listing him as a player who isn’t draftable.
With some more seasoning in college (where he averaged 13.4 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists as a freshman), Williams-Goss could turn into a legitimate prospect, but he’s not there yet, and I’m glad someone got in his ear and revealed that tidbit of information.
