Syracuse basketball forward Tyler Lydon will sign with an agent and enter the NBA Draft, according to a report from Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports. During a news conference at 3 p.m., Jim Boeheim said Lydon told him he had not signed with an agent as of 1 p.m. Lydon, the 6-foot-9 sophomore forward, has been mentioned all season as a potential early entry candidate for the 2017 NBA Draft. He said last Saturday, after the Orange lost to Mississippi in the second round of the NIT, that he had not decided on whether to stay at Syracuse or test the NBA waters. He was expected to spend the weekend talking with his family about his options. Lydon finished his sophomore year averaging 13.2 points and a team-high 8.6 rebounds per game. He was 49-for-124 from the 3-point line, nearly mirroring his 49-of-122 effort his freshman season.
