The D.C. native is going pro, could he be making a trip back home to Washington to play for his hometown team?

Kansas Jayhawks forward Thomas Robinson, a resident of Washington, D.C. who played his high school basketball at Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, NH, officially declared for the NBA draft on Monday. Robinson averaged 17.7 points per game, helping the Jayhawks make it to the National Championship game against the Kentucky Wildcats.

Robinson also averaged 11.9 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game while making 50.5 percent of his shots during the season. He measures at 6'10" and 237 pounds and would be a good addition for any team looking for a tough inside presence who will go after the ball aggressively.

Tom Ziller of SBNation.com has Robinson going No. 2 overall to the Washington Wizards in his NBA Mock Draft.

'New traditions' means
avoiding future Blatches.
Sorry, Dre Drummond.

The Wizards have been needing an aggressive inside presence. If they are lucky enough in the Draft Lottery to get a top three draft pick, Washington will have to look hard at a player like Robinson who could be that inside player they so desperately need.
