UNC’s Marcus Paige Announced He Will Return for His Junior Season


North Carolina star Marcus Paige announced via Twitter that he will forego the NBA draft this year and instead will be returning to school next year for his junior season, sort of.

Some are arguing that this was a generic tweet about UNC basketball and that he’s not necessarily saying he will be a part of the team next year. But then he retweeted this:

I think this makes it pretty clear that Paige has no intention of declaring for the NBA draft and instead will stay at UNC for another year. The Tarheels’ season ended on Sunday when Iowa State defeated them 85-83 in the 3rd round of the NCAA tournament.
