LOS ANGELES (AP) -- UCLA guard Jordan Adams has changed his mind and decided to enter the NBA draft, leaving the Bruins without their two best players from last season.

Sophomore guard Kyle Anderson had already declared for the draft earlier this month.

Adams, a sophomore from Atlanta, led the Bruins in scoring with 17.4 points per game this season, was the second-leading rebounder at 5.3, and set the school single-season steals record with 95. He was first team All-Pac-12.

About 10 days ago, Adams said he had fun playing college basketball and was excited about the team the Bruins would have back. There was no word Sunday on why he reversed his decision.

Freshman Zach LaVine is also leaving UCLA early for the draft. Adams, Anderson and LaVine combined to average 41.4 points.
