Tyler Ennis: Syracuse freshman declares for 2014 NBA draft

The season ended prematurely for the Syracuse Orange who were bounced in the round of 32 of the 2014 NCAA Tournament last weekend and the career for freshman point guard Tyler Ennis also ended prematurely as he has declared for the 2014 NBA draft according to Jeff Goodman.

The 6-2, 180-pound Ennis is currently ninth on Chad Ford’s big board after he showed good leadership, quickness, an ability to drive and dish and showing a capable shot after averaging 12.9 points per game, 3.4 rebounds and 5.5 assists.

Still, Ennis has a lot to work on and his head coach at Syracuse, Jim Boeheim, spoke about the areas he needs to improve and why he thought an extra year in college would be beneficial.

Ennis figures to be a lottery pick as the league has become a point-guard driven league in the last couple years
