The newspaper, quoting unidentified sources close to the players, reported they are expected to hire agents, which would mean they could not return to play for the Bruins next season.
UCLA coach Ben Howland has a news conference scheduled for Wednesday.
Love, a freshman center, led the Bruins in scoring (17.5 points) and rebounds (10.6). Collison, a junior point guard, was a third-team All-American who averaged 15.2 points and 3.9 assists this season.
The Bruins lost in the national semifinals to Memphis on Saturday.
The Times also reported the Bruins are expected to lose sophomore guard Russell Westbrook to draft. The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft is April 27.
