Tyler Lydon mum on future at Syracuse University

Tyler Lydon wouldn't answer questions about next year (Matt Hauswirth)

Tyler Lydon isn't ready to talk about what his basketball future holds.

After Syracuse's 85-80 loss to Ole Miss in the NIT, I asked Lydon if the sour end to this season motivates him to come back stronger next year.

Tyler's answer didn't directly correlate to the question, "I'm not answering any questions about next year right now, I'm just going to talk with my family and see what's best."

Lydon, by many, is expected to enter the NBA Draft, and is projected as a first round pick there.

Until now though, Lydon has been focused on the actual games. Trying to rally to the NCAA Tournament and then to an NIT Championship.

Now, the season's over.

Lydon says he'll talk it over with his family, and that his family friends have done a great job "zoning it out" and not talking to him about his future.

Now though, as Lydon says, a conversation with his family is in order.

Tyler has the option to enter his name in the draft and not sign an agent. In that process, he can take part in the NBA Scouting Combine and see where he stands with different teams before making a final choice.

Of course, if he is 100% sure, he can sign an agent right away, the signing of representation is the final straw to exhaust eligibility.
