2014 NBA Draft: Syracuse's Tyler Ennis Selected 18th By Phoenix Suns

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Head West, young Tyler!

Syracuse Orange point guard Tyler Ennis left after only one season in orange platinum. He accomplished plenty in that one season and he was rewarded Thursday when Phoenix Suns selected him with the 18th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

Ennis came into the 2013-2014 season with high expectations to replace Michael Carter-Williams. He held his own and then some. Ennis led Syracuse to a 27-5 overall record and a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament. He led the ACC in assists (5.5 APG) and steals (2.1) while also averaging 12.9 PPG, good for 2nd on the squad. Ennis played 35.7 minutes per game, playing in all 34 contests on the year.

The Brampton, Ontario native is the latest Syracuse guard to go high in the draft, following in the footsteps of Jonny Flynn (6th), Dion Waiters (4th) and Michael Carter-Williams (11th).

Ennis was predicted to be a lottery pick by some when he announced his decision to go pro. However, expectations dropped as the draft neared. Ennis eventually figured he would be either be picked by the Orlando Magic at No. 12 or the Toronto Raptors at No. 20. Turns out...not so much.

The question now is, with three point guards, which one is Phoenix shipping elsewhere?
