Jermey Tyler

Im hearing more and more about this kid. Some bad some very good. He is projected as a PF/C possible late 1st but early 2nd to late second round. If u were a GM would u invest in him. I would as he is young and has tremndous upside. His stats obviously dont relect that but people where not high on Jennings who is a pretty good point guard.

I had him first round early

I had him first round early on and wanted New York to take him because he can rebound well. I just dont know where he is on defense and I hear he could be 6'9" 6'10" If he is 6'11" Knicks need to take a look because he has legit Center length and I doubt Dalembert comes over for 6 million if he can get higher elsewhere.

I don't know man, his

I don't know man, his maturity and mental issues have plauged him since his early high school years so I'm not spending a top 20 pick on him. The Knicks need a player who can contribute NOW not a project.

I hope he lands in Boston;

I hope he lands in Boston; Doc Rivers being around long-term means Tyler has a good chance of actually reaching his potential.

Knicks need a big man and

Knicks need a big man and since signing one would be too costly. They need to look at trying to get a young one. Also most young players have maturity issues. Tyler was just more watched. DJ Jordan was said to have issues and fell to the 2nd round and now a lot of teams want him.

They have Jordan coming over

They have Jordan coming over so they can give Tyler time to develop plus you have to look at Jennings. He play a year overseas and came into the NBA ready but did poorly overseas. Tyler did poorly overseas but got 2 years of playing ball that was probably on par with college players.

Celtics would be a great fit.

Celtics would be a great fit. He can develop off the bench behind the O'Neals. With all the veterans around him then he will can keep in line.

I have some friends that play

I have some friends that play ball overseas and they say this kid has been beaten up mentally by the press over there....But if he goes to a team with a coach like Doc Rivers they will show him love and how to play the game or a stern coach like Greg Popovich, he could turn out to be the best player in this draft in 3 years...

.

Many teams in the 20's could gamble on him as a 5th bigmen, even more.

From blazers to nuggets, celts, nets....bulls won't pass on him twice with boozer missing 30 games every years.

I'm a Knick fan and I'm also

I'm a Knick fan and I'm also hoping that the Knicks draft Jeremy Tyler. He's a project but I think he's worth the gamble given his upside. I'm not thrilled with the idea of selecting him 17th but would love to grab another late first round pick to select him (and Lucas Noureiga).

As for the Doc Rivers developing Jeremy Tyler comment, Doc Rivers has had no real resume of developing projects into legitimate role players. His Magic teams were mediocre, as well as his Celtics teams before picking up Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen.

@NardDog Nation

Take a look at Kendrick Perkins, who pretty much was the definition of a project when he entered the league, progressing under Doc. To a lesser extent, the same can be said with Rondo, Big Baby, and Leon Powe. Doc Rivers is one of the league's premier coaches, and the Celtics have a stable foundation in place with a lot of veteran leadership. They are a great place for a project big man to wind up.

I'm a big supporter of Tyler

I'm a big supporter of Tyler and hope he falls to one of LAL's early second rounders as an athletic faceup four to develop for the future beside of Bynum. Caracter isn't the answer of the future for LA at the 4. Having said that, the more I have been watching him against grown men, the more issues I see. he doesn't really have the best awareness or aggressiveness. He's the kind of player that absolutely MUST be drafted by a team of strong veterans like the C's or a team with a coach who is known for developing young bigs.

Perkins was showing promise

Perkins was showing promise before Doc Rivers was there

I think if they draft Tyler

I think if they draft Tyler and bring Jordan over they should be solid in post for a while and they can focus on other positions like finding a way to get Chandler back possibly or getting Felton or Paul to man the point. They got Melo and getting a legit big man with few big men available will be too hard. If Knicks draft a big they will probably have a better job keeping him. You can sign a vet like Battie and hire a good big man coach like Ewing and possibly have solid production from that position to support Melo/Amare.

He should be taken in the 2nd

He should be taken in the 2nd round. No team should invest a 1st round, *guaranteed* deal in a player like him. A 2nd round pick would be little risk, and possible high reward for him. He also wouldn't be rushed to develop. He's not ready to play right now anyway. A team could take him the 1st, but why not invest a 2nd round pick in him and trade up to get him if he's available if you want him that bad?

Upside is not solely a function of how a player performs at AAU tournaments at the age of 16. He spent the last two years showing that he isn't ready for the NBA. Unless he agrees before the draft to stay oversees for another year or two, I see no value in him as a first round pick.
