The Syracuse Orange fell out of the 2014 NCAA Tournament to the Dayton Flyers, and PG Tyler Ennis declared for the 2014 NBA Draft shortly afterwards. Ennis will be a one-and-done freshman that wasn't on most people’s radar with the likes of top freshmen like Jabari Parker, Julius Randle and Andrew Wiggins getting all the attention. Here are five reasons why Ennis made the right choice by declaring.
Ennis’ size and speed are perfect for an NBA point guard. He has the ability to shoot when needed and pass when necessary.
Being so highly touted, Ennis is likely to get immediate playing time with whichever team that drafts him.
Ennis’s biggest flaw has been his tendency to put games on his back. Sometimes it works, like in the win over North Carolina State in the regular season, and sometimes it doesn’t like in the loss to North Carolina State in the ACC tournament. That’s something that an NBA team could fix in just one or two practices.
Ennis is known for his scoring, but he actually has excellent vision when it comes to assists. He’s a team player, which is important for a young point guard in the NBA.
The two top point guards are Ennis and Marcus Smart. Either way, Ennis is likely going to land somewhere in the top-15 of the 2014 NBA Draft.
