As the declarations for the 2014 NBA Draft continue to come in as the college basketball season has ended and June approaches, we have two more on Tuesday as Arizona freshman Aaron Gordon and junior Nick Johnson have officially announced that they will be off to the professional ranks.
Official: Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson declare for the 2014 NBA Draft.

This announcement has been pretty much expected since Arizona was knocked out of the NCAA Tournament a few weeks ago, it was just a matter of when they would make the announcement.
In his only season on campus for head coach Sean Miller and the Wildcats, Gordon averaged 12.4 points per game with 8 rebounds. He was one of the more talented freshmen in the nation of the tremendous class we saw in 2014, and is projected by some to be a high pick in the lottery.
Johnson spent three years in Arizona, averaging 12.3 points per game, including 16.3 this past season in Arizona’s amazing run through the season.
Now, Miller has some reloading to do for next season to make another run in the Pac-12.
