Chalmers, Arthur, Collins to return

Minutes after Tuesday nights banquet, Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers, Darrell Arthur and Sherron Collins spoke about the future. There has been a great deal of speculation about each player since the season ended, so Jayhawk Slant spoke to Rush, Chalmers, Arthur and Collins after the banquet was finished.

Rush Still Undecided About Future:

"I'm just going to wait and see who is coming out," said Rush. "I just want to get a feel for who is coming out and who is staying. I don't have a date picked out and I still have until the 29th. I have plenty of time to wait and see who is coming out.

"I haven't given it much thought," he added. "Julian Wright's decision to leave doesn't impact my decision. He's his own person. I am just going to wait a few more weeks, see who is coming out and get a feel of who is going to be picked.

"Going farther than we did last year (would be a reason to come back)," he continued. "I think we have a great team. We are going to have a great team regardless if I come back or not. It would be best for the whole team to be together. I lean to my brother (Kareem Rush) a little bit for advice. CoachBill Self and I have had some talks.

"He has given me some feedback from some teams," he continued. "I've just been trying to lay low. Realistically, coming back is an option. If I do decide to go, I wont hire an agent. I can do that because the last time I was still in high school."
