Breaking down Syracuse forwards Tyler Lydon, Andrew White with NBA scout

Syracuse is right on the bubble at the moment

NBA scouting consultant Ryan Blake calls in to discuss Tyler Lydon and Andrew White with Wes Cheng on The Juice on the Cuse Podcast hosted by The Juice Online Editor in Chief Brad Bierman then discusses football scheduling.

Here are the highlights from the show:

Wes Cheng: Tyler Lydon is Syracuse’s best prospect this season. What do you like about his game?

Ryan Blake: You look at a guy with his size, a stretch 4 that can shoot the ball, blocks shots, has passing ability, you look down the stat line, he fill sit up pretty good. When you look at an NBA player, you look for a guy with those traits. I know there’s going to be questions about strength for a power forward and speed to defend NBA 3s. With a guy like him, you have to get him in for workouts to see if this is the guy they want.
