Battle declares for NBA draft


Tyus Battle may have already played his last game for Syracuse.

The star guard has declared for this June’s NBA draft, but did not hire an agent, which leaves the door open for a potential return.  He’s projected as either a late first, or early second-round pick.

Battle led the Orange in scoring this past season, averaging 19.2 points per game, and played an integral role in Syracuse’s miraculous run to the Sweet 16.

He has until May 30 to withdraw his name from draft consideration.
