Josh Selby's Decision On KU Basketball, NBA Coming 'Real Soon'

There's still no word on the future of KU basketball player Josh Selby and his 2011 NBA draft future. The Kansas Jayhawks freshman has yet to make a decision on his future as he continues to work out in Las Vegas.

Kansas held a banquet on Monday night and Selby didn't attend, instead opting to stay in Las Vegas -- for now, at least. Self spoke on Selby's absence (via KC Star):

"I talked to (his mother) today, and that decision is coming real soon," Self said. "He's done the work he needs to do to academically pass his classes, but he's been gone now six days. If he's going to come back, then he'll be coming back real soon. If not, then he won't. But certainly he's going to salvage the semester academically and pass his classes, which is good."

Selby has until April 24 to declare for the draft and, if he doesn't hire an agent, he has until May 8 to pull out. But Self says a decision -- one way or the other -- is coming real soon so we should know something, um, real soon.
