Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis NBA Combine Recap
The NBA Combine is a two-day event with over 60 of the top NBA draft prospects.
Tyler Ennis, who decided to enter this year's draft after just one season at Syracuse in which he averaged 12.9 points and 5.5 assists per game, was at the combine Thursday. “It’s a pretty fun process, you get to talk to coaches and GM’s and it’s good to see hear their perspective.” “It’s a good process and most of all it’s about you," Ennis said when asked about the process.
Ennis, like many other high prospects decided to forgo all on-court drills, and only measured for height, weight and wingspan.
He measured at 6 feet, 2.5 inches in sneakers on Thursday. He weighed 181 pounds. His wingspan was an impressive 6 feet, 7.5 inches and his standing reach was 8 feet, 2 inches.
The team's Ennis is scheduled to meet with or already met include the Nuggets, Kings, Sun, Thunder, Jazz, Rockets, Raptors, Bobcats, and Hawks.
When asked who he compares with most in the league now, Ennis answered quickly, “Tony Parker, being able to score and control the team and find open guys when the time is right.” Scouts have Ennis as a projected lottery pick, more in the 5-14 pick range.
Syracuse's C.J Fair and Jerami Grant were also in attendance at the combine.
The NBA Draft Lottery, which is used to determine pick order in the June draft, will be held on May 20.
