LOS ANGELES — UCLA guards Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine are leaving early for the NBA draft.

Lavine, a freshman who played at Bothell High School, and Anderson, a sophomore from Fairview, N.J., announced Wednesday they will forego their remaining eligibility to start pro careers.

Anderson averaged 14.6 points, 8.8 rebounds and 6.5 assists this season, closer to a triple-double than any player in the nation.

LaVine averaged 9.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists and earned Pac-12 all-freshman honors.

They helped lead the Bruins to a 28-9 record, a Pac-12 tournament title and the school’s first Sweet 16 appearance since 2008.

Besides Anderson and LaVine, the Bruins are losing fifth-year seniors David and Travis Wear.

First-year coach Steve Alford says he’s happy for Anderson and LaVine.

The NBA draft is June 26.
