Report: Jordan Adams, Norman Powell file paperwork for NBA draft status

According to the Los Angeles Times, both Jordan Adams and Norman Powell have filed paperwork for NBA draft evaluations.

However, a source told me Powell will return to UCLA, though Adams is still undecided. The NBA draft early entry deadline is April 27.

Adams led the team in scoring last season with 17.4 points per game, and set a new school record with 95 steals. Bruin 247′s Neal Nieves first reported last month that Adams was exploring the possibility of going pro.

Powell was the Bruins’ best man-to-man defender, and ranked third on the roster with 11.4 points per game. The junior had a breakout year in Steve Alford’s transition offense, averaging 14.2 points on 53.8 percent shooting.

UCLA is already losing to the draft one of the most versatile players in the country in All-American point guard Kyle Anderson, as well as reserve guard Zach LaVine.

    Come on back, fellas! We want you on this team next year.

    • Dan Wayne

      AMEN.

      GO BRUINS.

    The rats are jumping off the ship

    • pennyfan041

      didn’t you already use that joke once or twice?

      • NOBSisdaMAN

        Not a joke. The kids are MAD that the coach plays his kid and cares more about that than the team winning.

        • pennyfan041

          Actually, the players have expressed a ton of happiness this year. By all accounts, they love Steve Alford. The only reported discontent people are Zach LaVine’s family members. Zach himself never even said anything against Alford. Either way, not sure why you would call UCLA’s players “rats.”

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            And Zach is leaving BECAUSE of sonny boy. Can’t win Final Fours with that attitude.

          • pennyfan041

            You’re entitled to your own opinion. Zach is a shooting guard who would have started at point guard for UCLA next year. We’ll be fine without him, assuming Jordan and Norman both stay. If he is truly threatened by his backup, maybe it’s better he leaves. It seems to me that his family members are the ones up in arms, though. Like I said, I haven’t heart a single negative thing come from Zach’s mouth.

            LaVine was always a one and done. Nice try though.

    • pennyfan041

      Also, why don’t you like Jordan Adams or Norman Powell? You might be the only “UCLA fan” who doesn’t like them, assuming you actually are a UCLA fan.

        You are obviously new here. He is not a UCLA fan. He is the erstwhile Joe Blow, and Joe you will need to look up that word in the dictionary given that you struggle under the limitations of a USC education.

        • pennyfan041

          Cool cool. So he’s a legitimate troll? Like, one of those who doesn’t want to have a real conversation, but whose only desire is to make others mad? How silly. I remember liking that sort of thing before I became self-aware.

            Did you discover Yoga?

          • pennyfan041

            I did once. Not a fan.

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            You need a massage afterwards. Heaven.

          • pennyfan041

            I’ll skip the yoga and take the massage :)

          • NOBSisdaMAN

            See you soon! ;- )

        • NOBSisdaMAN

          At least I paid for it.

          He is the erstwhile Joe Blow ….

          But his friends call him Joseph Way B. Lowe Normal.

        Penneylane, Litefan is not telling the truth. It (hard to tell if he or she) just pops off all the time. Hates when someone (ME) tells the truth.

    In related news. Graduating USC players are submitting their paperwork to start working at a local Subway sandwich shop.

    • NOBSisdaMAN

      Need to replace “working AT” with “OWNING A”

      • drakejr

        You are right. The best they can hope for is to scrap up enough cash to own a delicious five dollar foot long.
