UPDATE: Paul gives us some good reasons not to panic. -N
Oh oh. AA calls a press conference. Gotta say this is a little weird:
Sophomore guard Arron Afflalo will hold a news conference at UCLA next week to announce his decision regarding the NBA, his father Ben said. A UCLA spokesman confirmed a news conference, but the date is not set.
The Afflalos met with coach Ben Howland on Wednesday to discuss the future. Arron Afflalo has previously said that he would stay at UCLA for his junior season. Underclassmen have until April 29 to declare themselves eligible for the NBA draft.
Why would he need to call a press conference if he is going to stay? Kind of interesting. Also per Burlison Jordan is leaning towards going pro.
The 6-3 Westbrook would become an even more critical commodity for the Bruins if sophomore guard Jordan Farmar enters the NBA Draft. He's believed to be currently leaning in that direction.
That's 6-3 guard Russell Westbrook
, who is also considering (per Burlison) Arizona State, Miami and the University of San Diego.
Fasten your seat belts. Next week is going to be nerve-wracking.
