According to a CBS Sports college basketball analyst, Syracuse men’s basketball forward Tyler Lydon may no longer be wearing an Orange uniform.
Jon Rothstein with CBS Sports says Lydon will sign with an agent and will enter the 2017 NBA Draft.

If Lydon will sign with an agent, he loses his collegiate eligibility to return to play for SU if he does not pursue the NBA.
If he has not signed with an agent, he could still test the waters at the NBA Combine but would be able to return to play for Syracuse.
However, in a press conference addressing his contract extension, head coach Jim Boeheim said that Lydon told him he did not sign with an agent.
On Saturday, Lydon declined to comment on his future at Syracuse University when asked by NewsChannel 9.
