A name to keep in mind for our 2nd round pick (assume mid to late 30s at the moment) is Jeremy Tyler. Chad Ford mentioned him today as a player automatically entered into the draft because he has played professionally overseas and is 19 years old or older (will be 20 June 1).
Most of you have heard of his story before - he was one of the top HS prospects in the country and chose to drop out of HS after his junior year and play professionally overseas. Overall was a disaster of a decision as he was said to be immature and home sick, etc.....Not surprising when you quit HS and move to Israel to play hoops.
He has been working with Bob Hill in Japan apparently and I would highly doubt that anyone looks at him in the first round. But in the second round..........he could be a very interesting pick for us....Especially with our own D League affiliate now.....
The purpose of the second round is to find diamonds in the rough...and the purpose of the D League is to develop players who could one day help your team at the NBA level. Jeremy Tyler seems like the perfect second round pick for a team with a D League squad.
