SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The offseason news keeps on coming for the Syracuse Orange basketball program. Sophomore forward Tyler Lydon will enter the NBA Draft and sign with an agent, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. That means he will not return to the program.
During his two years with the Orange, Lydon averaged 11.6 points and 7.4 rebounds per game. This past season, he put up 13.2 points and 8.6 rebounds while shooting 47% from the floor and 39.2% from beyond the arc.
Lydon came to Syracuse as a top 100, four-star forward and was a key cog in their Final Run during the 2015-16 season. The 6-foot-8 forward has been considered a first round draft pick all season by most NBA Draft experts.
