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.

    Another athlete who fails to finish college, he sees the money and thinking short term, I would laugh my a$$ off if he didn’t make it in the pros and was shoving food out of a drive thru window.

    it kills me that these kids think they will just go to the pros when they are not that good. He isnt even the best player on his team. what a waste.
