Tyler Ennis part of Canadian basketball boom — Cuse Clicks

Ennis will play a huge role this season

Canada in the last few years has produced a wealth of talented NBA prospects. Tristan Thompson is developing nicely for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Myck Kabongo should be a solid if unspectacular pro guard. Andrew Nicholson has a nice perimeter touch for a big man and he might be best-utilized in the international game. Kris Joseph was drafted out of Syracuse last summer. There are more coming. Besides Wiggins, the 2013 ESPN 100 includes two Canadians: No. 20-ranked Syracuse commit Tyler Ennis, and No. 44-ranked Florida State prospect Xavier Rathan-Mayes.
