NBA Draft: UCLA's Tyler Honeycutt & Malcolm Lee Fall To Second Round

The decision to leave college early is hardly ever an easy one, with several risks and rewards that must be weighed. For UCLA Bruins Tyler Honeycutt and Malcolm Lee, their decision to leave college didn't necessarily result in what they wanted -- to be picked in the first round of the 2011 NBA Draft and get a guaranteed contract -- as both were picked in the second round. Time will tell whether both made good decisions.

Honeycutt, the 6-foot-9 forward who averaged 12.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks as a sophomore last season, was picked No. 35 by the Sacramento Kings. Honeycutt had been rumored to go in the first round, perhaps at No. 25 to the Celtics. Lee, the 6-foot-5 junior guard most known for his stellar defense, was picked No. 43 by the Chicago Bulls, but was shipped to the Minnesota TImberwolves.

There were 14 UCLA Bruins active in the NBA last season, the most of any school.
