Judah Mintz was incredible during his freshman season at Syracuse in the final year of head coach Jim Boeheim. The former 4-star guard shined for the Orange last season, averaging 16.3 points per game and just under 5 assists per game.

On Monday, Mintz announced that he will be entering the NBA Draft process while maintaining his college eligibility, not hiring an agent. This is a smart move for Mintz, as it gives him options and the ability to see where his value is at heading into next season.

“I’m announcing that I will continue to pursue my dream and enter my name into the 2023 NBA Draft process, while maintaining my college eligibility,” Mintz wrote on Instagram. “I’m excited and blessed to have this opportunity and I can not wait to see what is in store for my future.”

Syracuse’s season did not go as planned, to put it lightly. The Orange missed the tournament after posting a 17-15 record.

Mintz’s return next season would be huge for a team making a head coaching change for the first time in over 45 years.
