TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona junior forward Chase Budinger says he is hiring an agent and will make himself available for the NBA draft.
Budinger made the announcement on Tuesday, the same day Sean Miller was introduced as the new Arizona coach. Budinger averaged 18 points and 6.2 rebounds per game and averaged 19 points in the Wildcats' three NCAA tournament games.
Budinger says he felt he was ready for the move.
Junior center Jordan Hill would not say whether he also would turn pro, but there is widespread speculation he will.
Point guard Nic Wise says he will make himself available to the draft but won't hire an agent. That means he can still change his mind and return for his senior season.
