NBA Draft 2014: Tyler Ennis may not declare, according to report

Tyler Ennis - Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse standout may return to school for a sophomore season, a report says.

Syracuse point guard Tyler Ennis has seen his NBA Draft stock rise throughout his freshman campaign and may have played his way into a lottery selection. However, Basketball Insiders scribe Alex Kennedy cites "a number of scouts" as saying the young prospect may return to Syracuse for a sophomore season.

In 28 appearances for the Orange, Ennis has posted per-game averages of 12 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 2.1 steals to 1.6 turnovers. His steadiness at arguably the NBA's most critical position has drawn attention from Orlando Magic fans who'd like to see their team select him as a potential successor to Jameer Nelson.

Orlando will have two first-round Draft picks in 2014: its own pick, likely among the top six selections, as well as an additional one from either the Denver Nuggets or New York Knicks. If Ennis declares, he could be available to the Magic with that second pick.

If, however, Ennis stays in school, he'd become the second likely lottery point guard to do so in the last two Drafts: Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart elected to return to Stillwater rather than declare in 2013.
