Another Syracuse basketball star will be appearing locally for an autograph session.

Tyler Lydon will be signing on Thursday night from 5-7 p.m. at HOF Sport Collectibles in Yorkville, the store announced Wednesday.

Lydon just completed his sophomore season at Syracuse, but will be entering the NBA draft.

After declaring that he was entering the draft on twitter, there were conflicting reports about whether the 6'9'' forward had signed with an agent. Contracting with an agent would make him ineligible to return to SU - had he changed his mind and decided to wait another year before going pro. Signings for autographs and appearances would also make him ineligible to return to college action, so there is no longer any question about Lydon's future plans.

Many basketball experts have him pegged as high as a late first-round pick in the NBA draft.

HOF Sports Collectibles recently hosted former Syracuse and NBA-baller Lawrence Moten, and will welcome Orange-legend and current team assistant coach Gerry McNamara on Thursday, April 13.

Tickets for the Lydon and McNamara appearances are $20 and can be purchased through the store's website.
