2014 NBA Draft: UCLA Bruins' Kyle Anderson declares for draft


The UCLA Bruins season came to an end last night as they lost their Sweet 16 game with the Florida Gators and today the team has lost Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine to the 2014 NBA draft.

As a sophomore, Anderson averaged 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists in 36 games and at 6-9 is a very intriguing prospect because of his size and length at the point guard position. He is a point forward at the next level and is versatile enough to play on the perimeter but needs to improve his three-point shot and get stronger.

He is projected as a mid-first round pick and is no. 23 on Chad Ford’s big board.

LaVine is more of a project who will be drafted on potential rather than production after being a disappointment for much of the season for the Bruins coming off their bench, but he’s at no. 25 on Ford’s big board and the 6-5 point guard has good size and range at the position.
