    I didn't see Westbrook going #4.

    Nor did I see Love going to Memphis... only to get his rights dealt.

    Howland just signed a massive extension.

    Nice to see that UCLA stopped being cheap. Well, with their mens basketball coach, anyway...

    Bobcats re-sign C Hollins

    Hollins re-ups with Charlotte.

    Not sure if it was noted in here at all, but I'm pretty sure Mata-Real and Bozeman are on the Lakers' summer league squad.

    Tyler Lamb committed to the Bruins for the 2010 class.

    This is one of those commitments that will (if he progresses realistically) look better later than it does now. Not a guy that is well known/regarded nationally, but looks very much to be known as an elite guard/wing type prospect by the time he reaches UCLA.

    It is also rumored that UCLA leads for Tyler Honeycutt in the 2009 class. He is a badly needed small forward, and one of the best small forward prospects in the nation. Fingers crossed.

    I read this quote posted over at Scout.com and had to share it because it's priceless.

    This was heard at Men's Gym, after Malcolm Lee started the day a bit wild and out-of-control:

    "Hey, he won't be able to get away with the stuff under Coach Howland. He could have got away with that **** under Steve Lavin, and even under Harrick but definitely not under Howland."

    That came out of Toby Bailey's mouth.

    HUGE NEWS.

    On the heels of losing out to Arizona for 2009 PG Abdul Gaddy, the Bruins got a verbal from Tyler Honeycutt.

    Honeycutt is a badly needed SF for the 2009 class and is universally seen as an elite prospect.

    Scouting reports are that he's tall (6'8") and lean, with great ball skills for his size, a nice outside shot, and some of the best shot blocking ability of any prospect in the West.

    If you look at the roster, and the probable departures to come, this was probably the single most important recruit for the incoming 2009 UCLA class.

    Not sure anyone cares... feel like I'm talking to myself here... but...

    Class of 2009 center Anthony Stover just committed to UCLA. He's an elite shot-blocking prospect. By all accounts, he's a "Howland kid" in that he's straight-laced with a supportive family, an interest in education, and a willingness to work.

    We're one shooting guard away from another obscene recruiting class by Howland.

    C Stover
    PF Lane
    PF Nelson
    SF Honeycutt
    SG ???

    You're not talking to yourself. I don't have access to this good info so I love that you are posting it.

    I was hoping we could get a team that could end up being a group of great athletes instead of a couple of big time stars that will just leave. Sounds like Howland is trying to build up that kind of team.
