There is a lot of talk on twitter about GJ leaving Arizona and entering the draft...., would be a terrible move for him.

83-60= 23 spots to move up to get into the second round.

I hope it's all just rumors. Agree with Beerman, would be a terrible move.
Time to nut up or shut up
In 2011, I was amazed, astounded really, that Washington PG Isiah Thomas was taken with the last overall pick in the second round. This was over the likes of:
My point is, Thomas has done pretty well for himself in the Sacramento King's system. That was no surprise to me, but apparently NBA scouting experts whiffed big time. I think there is a West Coast bias with scouting teams as well.
No way does a West Coast BBall player with no hype get into the second round.
Not going t happen
Read a tweet that said he's primarily thinking of entering b/c he doesn't like playing for Sean Miller, que Wineknow.
A degree from Arizona gets u into graduate school, a degree from asu gets u into high school.
not a bad move at all for him. he has the most upside of any player on the roster. The NBA has shown over and over that they are willing to develop players with physical tools that Grant has. Players can develop outside of the NCAA and get paid for it. Why not?
Wonder if this has anything to do with CSM's seemingly cooling on Eric Cooper Jr as a recruit?
BEAR DOWN boys... The best is yet to come....
Now the other shoe drops... Cooper reopening his recruitment and Grant thinking of leaving cant just be coincidental... It has to be connected....
was that tweet from him?
I can certainly understand the kid wants more minutes and if he went to, I don't know, ASU or something, he'd be getting 35-40.
There are always kids not happy who transfer out and others who transfer in. Can't hold that against Miller - but our style of play cannot be all that fun and if what Brad reported in the other thread - that NBA scouts told our staff at the beginning of the year that he had lottery pick type talent, then either Miller gaffed big time and did not develop his best player OR Jarrett listened to the hype and thinks he was slighted.
Either way - if any player tweets that he does not like playing for any coach - he should just move on. Very sad.

Tweet was not from him.

Wine, i read that his projection was for 2014 and to make the leap that it is Miller's fault if he did not develop into a lottery pick is wild to me. No one on this board or in any paper or analysis i read said he could be a lottery pick this year.
Grant Jerret averaged:
any fault is on Jarrett. He played the 7th most minutes on the team as a freshman and his numbers were worse than the other 2 players he battled for time with. BASH ave about 2 more minutes a game, but had about 2 more points and rebounds a game than Jarrett. Zues also out scored and out rebounded Jarrett and both had better FG%
To add to this, season long statistic, Zues took 2 more shots than Jarrett all season, but he made 21 more than Jarrett. Zues and Ashley also got to the line 76 more times each this season than Jerrett in 4 and 2 minutes more per game.
With all this, I think he had a good season. He averaged over 5 ppg as a freshman. Next year, he'll be a lot bigger impact player because we won't have Parrom, Hill, or Lyons. I see him averaging 10ppg or more in only 20-25 min.
If he transfers on enters the draft, that's stupid, and I mean epic stupidity.
Yes, that's really sort of my point. Miller and staff saw him every day in practice - if NBA scouts said he was a Lottery pick THIS year - then either Miller has no idea what he is doing (which even I admit is not the case) or it's hype based on potential - that Jerrett listened to. Fortunately he appears to have gathered his senses.
Look at his TO's, Blocks and 3 point shooting. These are all things that Freshmen rarely excel at and he excelled at all three. His TO's are the lowest per minute on the team of any of the primary players. IMO, he's going to be terrific and could potentially explode like Derek Williams did, I just don't think his freshmen year warranted NBA consideration.
I agree, that is also my opinion. My money is on Miller.
