Aaron Gordon and Nick Johnson are leaving Arizona for the NBA.

One of the top freshmen during the 2013-14 season, Gordon was widely expected to leave after one season in Tucson. Johnson built up his draft stock with a superb junior season, earning numerous All-America honors and the Pac-12 player of year award.

Johnson led Arizona with 16.3 points per game last season while proving to be one of the nation's best perimeter defenders.

Gordon was named the Pac-12 freshman of the year after averaging 12.4 points and 8 rebounds per game.

Coach Sean Miller said freshman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and sophomore Kaleb Tarczewski will remain at Arizona for another season.

Arizona (33-5) came within a point of reaching the Final Four, losing to Wisconsin in the Elite Eight.
