UCLA's Anderson, LaVine declare for draft

LOS ANGELES -- UCLA guards Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine are leaving early for the NBA draft.

Anderson, a sophomore from Fairview, N.J., and LaVine, a freshman from Seattle, each said Wednesday that they will forego their remaining eligibility with the Bruins to start pro careers.

Anderson averaged 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists this season, closer to a triple-double than any player in the nation.

LaVine averaged 9.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists while earning Pac-12 all-freshman honors.

They helped lead the Bruins to a 28-9 record, a Pac-12 tournament title and the school's first Sweet 16 appearance since 2008.

Besides Anderson and LaVine, the Bruins are losing fifth-year seniors David and Travis Wear.

First-year coach Steve Alford says he's happy for Anderson and LaVine.

The NBA draft is June 26.
