    UA forward Chase Budinger soars toward the hoop during an 83-77 Wildcat loss to California on March 5 in McKale Center. Budinger announced yesterday that he would enter the NBA Draft.

    Chase Budinger will forgo his senior season at Arizona to enter the NBA Draft this summer, he told reporters Tuesday afternoon.

    Budinger, a junior who averaged 18.0 points and 6.2 rebounds per game last season, said UA’s decision to hire Sean Miller had nothing to do with his decision.

    Currently on NBADraft.net, Budinger is projected to be a No. 9 selection.

    Meanwhile, forward Jordan Hill said he has already made his decision but will not address it publicly until Thursday, he told reporters Tuesday.

    Hill is projected No. 2 according to NBADraft.net.
