Kansas' Josh Jackson Says He Hasn't Thought About His NBA Decision

The Jayhawks' star says he hasn't thought about his NBA decision.

Kansas star freshman Josh Jackson was asked Saturday night about his upcoming decision on the 2017 NBA Draft.

Jackson, following the Jayhawks' crushing loss to Oregon in the Elite Eight, said he hasn't thought about it.

Jackson is widely believed to be a top-three pick in the upcoming draft - some might even take him at No. 1 - so the answer is a little surprising. As he said, though, he just suffered a heartbreaking loss, so he probably just didn't want to talk about his future in what was a somber locker room.

UCLA star freshman Lonzo Ball, in competition with Jackson at the top of this year's draft class, declared immediately after the Bruins' Sweet 16 loss on Friday night.
