Taj Gibson said he gave consideration to declaring for the NBA draft but had a long talk with coach Tim Floyd and decided it was best for him to return to USC.
“I could have went for the draft and the money but I want to make sure I’m a complete player and that I’ll be high up on the draft board,” Gibson said. “I’m not yet the type of player I want to be. I want to be one of the best. I’m just worrying about getting stronger and perfecting my game.”
