The NBA career of Arizona guard Nick Johnson is still cloudy as he remains unsure of his decision to enter the draft or return to Arizona for another year. While reports have been surfacing that Johnson will be declaring for this summer’s draft, the man himself has stated that he remains unsure of what he’ll do.
“I’m not sure yet,” Johnson told Mark Willard of ESPN LA 710 AM. “The season just ended a few weeks ago. I’m still trying to get over that. I’m talking to my family, my support system and coach Miller. He’s been through it a few times with some guys and I’m just talking to him and trying to get the right information.”
Johnson is projected as a late first-round pick by some and a second rounder by others. He’s a lock to be drafted somewhere if he declares for the draft but it’s unclear how high his stock will rise. It’s also unclear how high it will rise or low it will fall if he returns to Arizona for another year.
April 15th is the deadline for Johnson and all underclassmen to make their decision to declare and we should hear more from the guard by then.
