TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

What is the opposite of a surprise, a fair answer might be Aaron Gordon deciding to declare for the NBA Draft.  In many eyes this is merely a formality and ESPN college basketball beat writer Jeff Goodman, a former Wildcat, stirred the pot this morning.

Goodman reported that sources close to him have confirmed that Gordon will make his decision official this week.

Johnson led the Wildcats in scoring with 16.3 points per game last season.

A UA Spokesperson told me this afternoon that," We don't have anything official planned at this time." From what I can gather we can expect his official announcement tomorrow or early Wednesday.

In that same report, Goodman says Pac-12 Player of the Year Nick Johnson will likely make his decision later this week as well. That decision would include declaring for the NBA Draft according to sources. Kaleb Tarczewski and Rondae Hollis Jefferson are leaning toward returning at this point.
