Syracuse forward Tyler Lydon is expected to declare for the NBA Draft and sign with an agent.

Lydon is a 6-foot-9 power forward with three-point range and the wingspan that allows him to protect the rim, but he’s a slender big man that struggled on the glass at the ACC level. As a sophomore this season, he averaged 13.2 points and 8.6 boards while shooting 39.2 percent from three.

Lydon is currently projected as a late-first round pick by Draft Express.
