Jules Bernard remains in the NBA draft, will not return to UCSD men’s basketball

Waiting for the last minute to announce his intentions, Jules Bernard will not return to Westwood for one last trip.

The UCLA men’s basketball guard announced the 2022 NBA draft while retaining his eligibility again on April 19, and finally confirmed his commitment to turning professional Wednesday night on Instagram. The deadline for first entrants to opt out of the draft was June 1 at 8:59 p.m., meaning Bernard largely moved his decision.

Bernard joins Johnny Guzhang and Peyton Watson on the draft group, and they now have a chance to hear their names in Brooklyn on June 23.
