SUMMARY

Tyler Bey is a superb athlete that reminds me of a poor man's Shawn Marion mixed with a little Brandon Clarke.  Bey jumped on NBA radars in his sophomore season in which he averaged 13.6 ppg, 9.9 rpg and 1.2 blocks while earning first team All-Pac-12 honors and winning the league’s Most Improved Player award.

 

In my opinion he's an energy guy that is best suited as small ball 4 at the next level but could have a major impact on a winning team with his style of play. He can serve as a switchy defender, transition rim runner and vertical lob threat. 

At this point in his career, he is not a threat as a floor spacer but his 78% free throw percentage indicates he has the touch to increase his range.
