WESTWOOD (CBS/AP) — UCLA guard Malcolm Lee will put his name in the NBA draft and plans to hire an agent ending his college basketball career.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound junior from Moreno Valley, Calif., 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 joins sophomore forward Tyler Honeycutt in declaring for the draft, continuing a trend at UCLA in which 10 players have been drafted in the last seven years of coach Ben Howland’s tenure.
