WESTWOOD (CBS/AP) — UCLA guard Malcolm Lee will put his name in the NBA draft, although he won’t an hire agent, leaving open the possibility of returning for his final year of eligibility.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound junior from Moreno Valley, Calif., announced his decision on Tuesday, a day after sophomore Tyler Honeycutt said he planned to hire an agent and enter the draft.
Lee was the Bruins’ second-leading scorer with 13.1 points per game this season.
He shot 44 percent from the field, 29 percent from 3-point range and 78 percent from the line.
Lee was considered by some to be the best defender in the Pac-10.
