CBB to NBA Player Comparisons: Tyler Ennis

Offensively, Ennis is a fantastic leader, great passer, and incredible finisher around the rim, especially for someone his size.  On the defensive end of the court, though, Ennis lacks elite size and may struggle to transition from the Syracuse zone to a NBA man-to-man system.  When taking in all of these characteristics, the pro player that Ennis most reminds me of is Spurs point guard Tony Parker.  First off, both Parker and Ennis are primarily pass first point guards with great attitudes and leadership abilities.  Also, nobody in the college game is able to perform a floater quite like Tyler Ennis, while Parker's floater is thought of as one of the best in the NBA.  In terms of negatives, neither of them are outstanding on-ball defenders and they are both have relatively small frames, even for point guards. Ennis is shooting up draft boards at the moment and it is easy to see why; much like Parker, he has an NBA ready mind and is a bona fide winner.
