The 2014-15 season was a forgettable one for Syracuse basketball, as the Orange finished 18-13 and were banned from postseason play due to NCAA sanctions. Legendary head coach Jim Boeheim also announced he’ll be relinquishing the reins of the program in three seasons.
Now, one of ‘Cuse’s projected top returners for next year is heading for the NBA Draft. Freshman forward Chris McCullough, who flashed major potential but played just 16 games before an ACL tear ended his season, will enter the 2015 Draft, according to multiple reports.
RealGM was the first outlet to say McCullough will be moving on.

McCullough averaged 9.3 points and 6.9 rebounds in 28.1 minutes per game before getting hurt. The Orange have already lost guard Ron Patterson and forward B.J. Johnson to transfer this off-season.
