Jordan Adams Flips Decision, Declares For NBA Draft

The UCLA basketball team took hit today as it came out that sophomore Jordan Adams will declare for the NBA Draft. It was only nine days ago when the Bruin’s leading scorer from last season had made it know that he would in fact be returning to UCLA after “testing the waters”.

NBA writer Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports was the first to break the news via Twitter.


With Adams leaving for the NBA, that officially makes five players that UCLA will be losing for next season including Kyle Anderson, Zach LaVine, David Wear and Travis Wear. Jordan Adams would have been an integral part of the 2014-15 Bruin basketball team, having a chance to return them to the NCAA Tournament. Now UCLA must scramble to fill the void of the team’s leader in points and steals. It is also unknown whether Norman Powell will return as he also submitted paperwork to analyze his position in the upcoming NBA Draft.

Either way, Adams will be missed.
