Thomas, Stephens go undrafted

Posted: Updated:

Draft night did not go the way a couple of Memphis Tigers had hoped, with both D.J. Stephens and Adonis Thomas going undrafted on Thursday.

Maybe a bigger blow to Thomas, who left Memphis after his sophomore season in order to pursue a professional career.

The former Melrose star and McDonalds All-American began his career with the Tigers projected as a possible lottery pick, but the 6'7" forward saw his numbers and his stock plummet last season, after returning from injury late in his freshman year.

Thomas tweeting today he had agreed to play for the Atlanta Hawks summer league.

D.J. Stephens, meanwhile, will be taking his talents to South Beach, competing for the NBA Champion Heat in summer league action.

As a senior, the high flyer was named C-USA Defensive Player of the Year after leading the league in blocked shots.

Just 6'4 and 188 pounds but possessing an incredible 46" Vertical Leap, Stephens also led the Tigers in rebounding and field goal percentage.
