Jordan Adams put a stop to any possible rumors that could spill about his UCLA future. The Bruins freshman says he'll be back for his sophomore season.
He couldn't say the same for his teammates, Kyle Anderson and Shabazz Muhammad.
UCLA head coach Ben Howland apologized on Monday for being "too honest" in announcing Muhammad had played his final game at Pauley Pavilion following the Bruins win over Arizona last Saturday.
He says, at the time, he hadn't had any discussions with Muhammad about it being his last home game and still has not talked to him about his future.
"It's kind of obvious when a kid's a lottery pick," Howland said of Muhammad. "Normally the No. 1 player in the country coming out of high school is one-and-done.
"It's incumbent upon me as the coach here if a kid is a top-10 pick to encourage him to do the right thing for him and his family and, in my opinion, almost without question, if someone is a lottery pick, he should go to the NBA."
