UCLA loses one, maybe two to the NBA

UCLA junior guard Malcolm Lee said he declare for early entry to the NBA draft, but will not hire an agent which would allow him to return to school.
Lee joins teammates Tyler Honeycutt who opted to leave the Bruins with a year remaining of eligibility. The sophomore forward will hire an agent, which will effectively end his college career.
UCLA coach Ben Howland said last week he expects a lockout will occur this year in the NBA. He said it would be best players such as Honeycutt and Lee remained in college.
The Bruins may also lose sophomroe forward Reeves Nelson, but he’s said to be leaning towards staying in school.
