Aaron Gordon’s NBA decision was expected, but Nick Johnson has surely shook things up a little in Tucson. According to Arizona via press conference on Tuesday afternoon, freshman Aaron Gordon and junior Nick Johnson will leave school and enter the NBA Draft.
Gordon is considered a high lottery pick by most draft prognosticators, while Johnson was a Second Team AP All-American while also earning Pac-12 Player of the Year honors.
“Nick embodies all of the qualities you want in a player,” Arizona coach Sean Miller said. “He’s made a meteoric improvement across the board in his time at Arizona and that stems from his unbelievable attitude.”
