Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

Junior guard Tyler Lamb has elected to leave the UCLA basketball program.

UCLA Bruins junior guard Tyler Lamb was granted his release after requesting a transfer Sunday, according to the team's official website.

Lamb said it was "in his best interest to find a new destination where [he] can continue to grow, both as a person and as a basketball player."

Here is head coach Ben Howland's statement on Lamb's decision:

"We are very sad to see Tyler leave our program," Howland said. "He is a great kid, and we have really enjoyed having him play for UCLA. We fully support his decision, and we wish him all the best in the future."

In a prepared statement, Lamb thanked Howland and his coaching staff along with the university for "the unparalleled opportunity" they offered him in his three years at UCLA. In 67 career games as a Bruin, Lamb averaged 5.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists. Lamb started 32 of UCLA's 33 games last year as a sophomore and averaged nine points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.7 steals per contest.
