Is 2016 guard Tyus Battle the next Kawhi Leonard? — Cuse Clicks

Battle committed to Syracuse

It’s never a bad thing to be compared to the MVP of the NBA Finals. And that’s what happened to Tyus Battle on Wednesday. The 6-foot-6 guard out of Gladstone (N.J.) Gill St. Bernard’s inspired a comparison to Kawhi Leonard at the Under Armour Steph Curry Select Camp in the Bay Area. ESPN’s Fran Fraschilla Tweeted: “I swear @kidmamba23 will be a college Kawhi Leonard. Has left it all out on court @UAassociation Steph Curry Select Camp. HIGH motor guy!”
