D.J. Augustin to Return to Texas Next Season

D.J. Augustin said Monday that he's 100 percent certain that he'll be returning to Texas next season. The freshman point guard also said he's not sure whether or not forward Kevin Durant will return, but does know which way the Big 12 Player of the Year is leaning.

D.J. Augustin said he's not ready yet for the NBA and will definitely return next basketball season to play for Rick Barnes and the Texas Longhorns.

"I need to get better. I'm sure about that," said Augustin.

With Augustin's decision to return already wrapped up, the biggest question now is whether or not his teammate, and Big 12 Player of the Year, Kevin Durant will return to Texas or jump to the NBA as a potential No. 1 overall draft pick. Ausutin said that Durant hasn't made a definitive decision yet, but that it seems the freshman sensation is leaning towards a return to the Longhorns.

"I have no idea. I mean, he tells us he's coming back, but Kevin's a humble guy, so he's probably going to say he's coming back whenever he's asked that question," Augustin said. "He's a great guy."

Augustin has already made his decision before the season's conclusion, but said it's something that Durant will wait on.

"Honestly, he's not thinking about that," said Augustin.
