The Arizona Wildcats are out of the NCAA Tournament as the Madness of March claimed them on Saturday night and the losses look to keep coming. While the loss to the Wisconsin Badgers had little barring on his decision, star forward Aaron Gordon is expected to enter the NBA Draft this June and leave Arizona in the past.
Barring a stunning change of mind, freshman Aaron Gordon has likely played his last game at Arizona and is headed to the NBA, sources said.

This comes as a very little surprise as Gordon was expected to declare for the draft and is expected to be a lottery pick. Depending on who else declares or skips the draft, Gordon could go well within the top 10 of the draft and may even approach the top 5.
He’s a standout prospect, and while he’s not complete — much like everyone else in the draft — he has a ton of potential and won’t last long once the NBA Draft kicks off this June.
