  • Fansided: Boeheim's Army 2019 Player Series: Eric Devendorf

    Boeheim's Army fans rejoice! This year's team is back and better than ever. Led by none other than former Syracuse Orange star Eric Devendorf. Boeheim's Army is considered one of the elite squads in the 2019 edition of The Basketball Tournament (TBT) this summer.

    Devendorf, known well by Syracuse fans all over for his passion and emotion, is coming back once again for a chance at the TBT title. Though he sometimes loses his cool while playing, his drive to win is unparalleled. It should come as no surprise then that Boeheim's Army GM Kevin Belbey called Devendorf "the spinal cord" of this team on The Manchild Show with Boy Green.

  • Fansided: Syracuse Basketball: Jerami Grant has chance to be "long-term" fit for Nuggets

    Jerami Grant is on the move, the Syracuse Basketball alum will be heading from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Denver Nuggets.

    Grant is coming off of a career year in 2018-19 in several key categories. 77 starts last season is the biggest one that jumps out and that's something that could continue with his new team.

    Jerami is on the second year of his current three year extremely team-friendly deal.

    After filling in as a role player for the majority of his career, it seems those days are over.

    ESPN NBA Insider Zach Lowe decided to share his thoughts on the fit:

    "Reading the tea leaves, Paul Millsap has an expiring contract and Trey Lyles has been renounced.

  • Fansided: Syracuse Basketball: Clippers forms super team featuring SU's Oshae Brissett

    A-Team... ASSEMBLE!

    With all our powers combined we have a brand new NBA super team featuring Kawhi Leonard (reigning NBA Finals MVP), Paul George, and of course former Syracuse basketball standout Oshae Brissett.

    Eh, close enough.

    While Kawhi and PG13 are absolute locks to make the roster for the Los Angeles Clippers, the path isn't so clear for Oshae.

    On Saturday evening he made his NBA Summer League debut for the Clippers and didn't really stand out.

    Oshae played right around 22 minutes and was an inefficient 1-for-8 from the field and shot 25 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Fansided: Syracuse Basketball: Tyler Lydon taking different path back to the NBA

    While several former Syracuse basketball players are scrambling to impress NBA teams in Summer League, Tyler Lydon is taking a different approach.

    Here are all of the former Orange stars who are playing for a Summer League team that we know of:

    Andrew White III (New York Knicks)
    Tyus Battle (Minnesota Timberwolves)
    Oshae Brissett (Los Angeles Clippers)
    Malachi Richardson (Golden State Warriors)
    B.J. Johnson (Sacramento Kings)

    There's no guarantee of playing time and a strong chance you could get injured, but completely necessary for most players who want to earn an NBA contract that aren't top stars.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: Kip Wellman departs as Syracuse's director of basketball operations

    While the Syracuse Orange men's basketball team announced another non-conference game on Monday, it was also announced that the man responsible for scheduling most of them in recent years is no longer with the program.

    Following a release around the hire of Peter Corasaniti as the Orange's director of basketball operations, SU also noted that Kip Wellman -- who's held the role since 2013 -- would be leaving the program to pursue other opportunities.

    Normally, this isn't earth-shattering news, and it may not be here. But Wellman's tenure was notable for adjusting how Syracuse schedules.

  • Fansided: Syracuse Basketball: Michael Carter-Williams turns opportunity into revival

    Michael Carter-Williams received a 10-day contract from the Orlando Magic last season with no promises.

    The former Syracuse basketball star turned that small opportunity into a complete career renaissance.

    Being a first-round draft pick buys you time. If an NBA team is willing to invest that kind of capital into you, they believe you can become a key cog on their team.

    MCW rewarded the Philadelphia 76ers with a Rookie of the Year campaign. Little did he know at that moment it would all go downhill from a statistical perspective.

    Michael Carter-Williams never got close to that 16.

    Former Syracuse Orange basketball players Tyus Battle and Oshae Brissett went undrafted in last week's NBA Draft, which wasn't totally surprising. Still, both of them picked up with NBA teams rather quickly for summer league and now have a chance to showcase their abilities in Las Vegas.

    Battle signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves while Brissett was scooped up by the Los Angeles Clippers. We also learned yesterday that former Syracuse player Malachi Richardson will be running with the Golden State Warriors in summer league.

  • Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician: After decade of major conference realignment, Syracuse comes out winner

    Conference realignment's been back in the news lately following UConn's decision to head back to the Big East and basically provide a death sentence for their struggling football program. It wasn't too long ago that new rumors were popping up every single day, and Syracuse Orange fans are probably happy to put that era behind them.

    Importantly, SU wound up coming out of the realignment era (2010-19) as one of the bigger "winners," something Pat Forde called out in his Wednesday piece assessing the best and worst outcomes of the shuffle over the last decade.
