Wiggins described Selden as “a joy to play with” and Vonleh as “a great teammate.”
By early June, Vonleh and Selden will be on the campuses of their new schools engaged in a routine of summer classes and basketball practices.
But between now and then there are commitments to fulfill.
Next week brings a trip to Brooklyn for the April 13 Jordan Brand Classic at the Barclay’s Center. Graduation ceremonies also loom the last weekend of May. And, of course, there is schoolwork to complete before each can receive his diploma.
As a 2013 USA Junior National Select Team member, Vonleh will also have the added responsibility of traveling to Portland, Ore., for the Nike Hoop Summit on April 20.
But, otherwise, his focus will largely mirror that of his one-time teammate.
“I can’t wait,” said Vonleh with a smile when asked about graduating before detailing his other upcoming plans.
“I’m just going to be in the gym, trying to finish school off hard, lifting, and getting ready to have a big season next year.”
