Jordan Adams stays, Byron Wesley leaves

The revolving door in the Pac-12 continues to spin.

At UCLA, the Bruins announced sophomore guard Jordan Adams will return next season while USC will lose junior guard Byron Wesley who is transferring.

In a statement released by UCLA, Adams said: “I’ve had so much fun playing here at UCLA, and I’m really excited about the team we’re going to have next year. Once the season ended, my family and I began carefully weighing all of my options. In the end, staying at UCLA for my junior year is a win-win situation. I’m glad that I went through the process, received constructive feedback and had time to reflect on what I truly want. I love being a Bruin. I’m looking forward to getting back in the gym and the weight room to get better, and I can’t wait for next season.”

Adams and junior guard Normal Powell requested a formal draft evaluation from the NBA. Powell hasn’t announced his decision.

UCLA lost Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine to the NBA draft. Adams’ return is good news for the Bruins. The 6-5 guard led UCLA with a 17.4 scoring average last season and was voted first team all-Pac-12.

Meanwhile, Wesley, a three-year starter, is transferring and should be eligible to play next season because he’s graduating from USC. The 6-5 guard averaged 17.8 points and 6.4 rebounds last season.
