Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson attend LeBron James Skills Academy

Jeff Gross

Only four Pac-12 players were invited to attend the LeBron James skills academy in Las Vegas.

LeBron James got away from the grappling over his second big free agency decision of his career by coaching a 30-player group of college players that included two Arizona Wildcats. Forwards Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Stanley Johnson attended the LeBron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas on Wednesday, and if anything measured out as two of the more impressive players.

Hollis-Jefferson was 219 pounds, 6'7" in shoes came with a 7'0.5" wingspan. Johnson, as we already expected from his Team USA and Nike Hoop Summit duties, came in at 6"7.5, 235 pounds and with a 6'10.5" wingspan.

Since this is a skills camp, it'll be hard to glean any new things we'll see this coming 2014-15 season. But first and foremost comes the shooting ability of Hollis-Jefferson, and for that matter Johnson. Sporting News' listed RHJ as the top small forward in the nation next season, but it makes the note that he'd be in the NBA if he had improved his jumper. One of Hollis-Jefferson or Johnson will need to be a reliable shooter next season if the Wildcats can run them both out in the starting lineup with an otherwise limited shooting group that includes T.J. McConnell and Brandon Ashley.

If neither shows consistency, then coach Sean Miller wouldn't be too shy by starting Gabe York as he did this past season and bringing Johnson -- the assumed default choice since he's a freshman -- off the bench.
