Arizona basketball: Sean Miller says Brandon Ashley's decision coming next

Doing this all at once would be so much better

At the end of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's press conference, where he declared for the NBA Draft, Arizona Wildcats head coach Sean Miller hinted at how the rest of this year's starters will announce their intentions.

Last year, all of the announcements came at once, but that doesn't appear to be going down this year.

"(Last year) was a timing issue," Miller explained on Tuesday. "I think this year we have different guys moving at different speeds, and we want them to take their time and make their decision. And by the same token, once the decision is made, it's easy and it's better for us to clarify it. So we'll start with Rondae, he'll lead us off, and then we'll go from there."

When asked if one player was closer than the rest, Miller said it was Brandon Ashley, which would make sense since we've seen reports that he's already made the decision to go pro.

"Hopefully in the next couple of days, (Brandon) will have his decision. And again, what we try to do is provide as much information as these guys need, and be as accurate in getting this information, and really supporting them on their decision."

"This isn't an Arizona basketball decision," coach continued. "This is a decision of an individual. This is Rondae's decision and his best interest. I think for us we want to support each of these guys. All of them are different."

Stay tuned as it appears each decision is going to come down separately over the next couple weeks.
