The Houston Rockets continued their pre-draft due-diligence by bringing in UCLA sophomore forward Tyler Honeycutt for a visit Thursday night. Honeycutt, who is 6 feet 8 inches tall, averaged 12.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 2.06 blocked shots a game last season with the Bruins. He told FOX 26 Sports visits like these with the Rockets can be invaluable, because it gives him a chance to show teams what he's all about. "Everything that they don't know and maybe they haven't been able to see at UCLA," said Honeycutt after his arrival at Bush Intercontinental Airport. "Mostly offensively. My offensive game, I would said is the biggest part." FOX 26 Sports

"Just me being lazy, not a hard worker," Honeycutt told HOOPSWORLD. "I've heard a lot of that, which I completely disagree on, so you know I'm trying to work hard and do everything to the max effort." HoopsWorld

UCLA forward Tyler Honeycutt is leaving school and will enter the NBA draft, he said Monday in a conference call with reporters. Honeycutt, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, averaged 12.8 points and 7.2 rebounds for the Bruins last season and is projected to be drafted late in the first round or early in the second round of the June 23 NBA draft, according to ESPN.com's Chad Ford.

Is Tyler Honeycutt going to declare? Is he good enough? Chad Ford: I hear he's seriously considering it, but hasn't made up his mind one way or the other. He's a potential first round pick, but another year at UCLA could make him a lottery pick. I think he and Malcolm Lee should both go back to school. A 4-11 record since the NBA all-star break, including an embarrassing 32-point home loss to Sacramento on Sunday, has led Timberwolves players to accept responsibility for the way the second half of the season is disintegrating — even to the point of defending coach Kurt Rambis, who has been the subject of reports and speculation that his job is in jeopardy. "It's easy to say when you're having a tough year," Wolves forward Kevin Love said about the uncertainty of Rambis' future with the team. "It's not a direct reflection on him. It's all on us being a young, youthful team. It's unfair. As a player, I have Kurt's back." St. Paul Pioneer Press

UCLA Coach Ben Howland said the potential of an NBA lockout would influence his advice to Bruins players deciding whether to declare for the draft, intimating that it might lead him to encourage them to return to college. "I can tell you in the NBA, in my opinion, this is going to be a serious lockout," Howland said Tuesday. "They will not be playing, in my opinion, next December and maybe even January. … You're not even going to get paid next year for half the year." FOX 43

Howland said he expected to meet with junior Malcolm Lee and sophomores Tyler Honeycutt and Reeves Nelson as soon as Monday to discuss their futures. College underclassmen have until April 24 to declare for the draft and can withdraw by May 8 to retain amateur eligibility, as long as they do not hire an agent. Lee's ability to work out for NBA teams during the two-week window may be compromised after he underwent surgery Tuesday to repair damage to his left knee sustained this month. FOX 43

Howland has said Honeycutt would have his blessing to declare for the draft if he is projected as a top-15 pick, which appears unlikely. One NBA executive, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss college players, said Honeycutt would be taken in the latter portion of a first round that includes 30 picks. Los Angeles Times

Honeycutt's decision will hinge not only on where he might go in the draft but also how far UCLA might go with him back in the fold. "It's going to be a key factor, coming back to a top-five team in the country, especially with the Wear [twins] coming . . . ," Honeycutt said. "It's going to be a good nucleus." Los Angeles Times
