UCLA’s Cody Riley and Chris Smith will test NBA draft waters; Jaime Jaquez will not

UCLA’s basketball roster remains in flux after redshirt junior forward Cody Riley and senior guard Chris Smith submitted their names for NBA draft consideration while preserving their ability to return next season.

Meanwhile, sophomore guard Jaime Jaquez Jr. has committed to returning to the team for at least one more college season, an athletic department spokesman said Friday.

Like sophomore guard Johnny Juzang, who declared for the draft last month, Riley and Smith will seek feedback about where NBA teams might select them — or if they are more likely to go undrafted — before making their decision.
