@PaulBiancardi Is Kaleb Joseph good enough to start at point guard for Syracuse next year in case Tyler Ennis declares for the Draft?

He is from a physical standpoint. Joseph (Nashua, N.H./Cushing Academy) has good speed in the open floor to push the ball on missed shots and turnovers. His versatility as a point guard will serve him well. Down the road, the 6-foot-3 Joseph can be a strong defender as well.
The learning curve will be understanding the nuances of the position, which usually takes years. Tyler Ennis has been outstanding in both the physical and mental portion of being a high-level point guard. Right now, Ennis is projected to be a middle-to-late first-round draft pick in the NBA. I believe his draft position will only creep higher.
