jeremy tyler news and r.sidney
The days of Jeremy Tyler with Maccabi Haifa could be finished soon. The young center, who left the the bench during the last game of BSL league and went to sit in the stands was already fined $5.000 and not allowed the big man to practice.
Now on the official Twitter page of the Israeli team was written "Jeremy Tyler will not dress to play this week & possibly the season. Former NBA Center Mamadou N'Diaye will replace him in the lineup".
Tyler is living a terrible season with Maccabi Haifa despite the big expectations American scouts have for him.
his stats for 10 games he played were 2p and 2r in 7 min
i think that if he leaves fron there he should play 2-3 years in the d-league so he can improve with work ethic his game.
he is very immature and he lacks bball fundamentals.
i dont know what their advisors tell to these guys but he is 2-3 years away at least about even considering the nba
also i cant understand why r.sidney didnt play in the d-league at the first place instead of sitting all year out
but again its their advisors and managers who dont give a damn about improving their game but are interested only in finding a good spot in the draft without exposing their flaws.
in the long run this will hurt the players
theres something on sydney...damn wish he would play. he has demarcus cousins game except with handles and range on his jumper and jumps a lil higher
plus he actually thought he would become eligable. it would have been a very dumb move for him to play in the deleauge. why you think no top hs player has done it?...thats what advisors are for , to make sure they dont make a dumb decision like playing in the d leauge and risk getting exposed and dropping in the draft
i think Jeremy is a bust..but i can't say this because IDK alot about him
as for Sidney..it's hard to believe but i thought he was better player than Cousins(i think most of you know how high on him i am) and as for now i think he will be HUGE steal of the draft..and i think after some workouts he still should become a first rounder
Sidney better not declare for this draft. There is plenty of blame to go around for what happened this season, but he hasn't been on the court in a year. Nobody is going to touch him in the first round. He might as well spend next year in the D-League or Europe and try to build up his stock.
Tyler is 18-years old. He clearly had no clue what he was getting himself in to by going oversees. I think it is apparent he didn't grasp professional basketball is much different from high school and AAU. The thing about his situation is that Maccabi Haifa is not going to give up on him, because they are going to want the NBA team who takes him to pay them the buyout when he enters the draft. Brandon Jennings was a net profit for Virtus. They got more from the Bucks in a buyout than they handed out to him in salary. Haifa has already put $100,000 + into this kid. Sending him back to the US just admits the costs are sunk. His handlers have screwed up royally. They probably should have started him out at a lower division of competition. He is playing with grown men with wives and kids. They aren't going to take it easy on some upstart kid. If he was playing in some second division in Spain or with a Nike International Junior Tournament affiliate of a Euroleague squad, it is likely he would be better off. They screwed this kid up. Heck, even the undrafted early entrant Davon Jefferson has said they have to humble the kid a bit. They problem is that I don't think his handlers will do the right thing by bringing him down a level to get him time and proper level coaching and instruction. It could end up costing Tyler in where he gets taken in 2011.
The buyout makes alot of sense. Jennings was over a million dollars though, Tyler's is an $100 thousand dollar investment they might just want to eat because it is becomming a bad situation fast.
No, Jennings signed a three year that was guaranteed for $1 million over the the three years. He didn't get $1 million for his one and only year, though all reports included his endorsement with Under Armour that pushed what he made to over $1 million. Virtus, though, made out like a bandit.
the thing about overseas contracts is that its not as strong as a u.s contract. teams dont honor contracts on the regular( i was a victim as well as some of my friends and brother) i do agree about the handlers though and im guessing they will just continue to be yes men because he's there golden goose. the kid has potential nba talent thats for sure but his mind and work ethic might just keep him from getting there.
as far as sydney, there are still teams willing to draft him in this years draft in the late first round from what ive read, because he's so talented
Every team and country is different with payment. Heck there are minor leagues in the U.S. where guys aren't getting paid on time or what they were said to get. There are teams throughout Europe where a team will basically pay two Americans, two natives, and the rest of the roster are working as bouncers on off nights at the club the owner runs. I'm sure part of the appeal of Maccabi Haifa for Tyler's handlers was that their owner is American, and that the checks were definitely going to clear. The downside, obviously, is that he wasn't mentally or emotionally to handle the pro game as Brandon Jennings was last year or even Latavious Williams is in Tulsa. Brandon Jennings couldn't hit a shot in Italy (and still can't in Milwaukee) and went 10th. Running the offense, making the right passes, and playing defense goes a long way. Latavious Williams is probably going to get drafted, and from what I've read people didn't even consider him to be a guy who projected as a big time college player. All Tyler had to do was learn the schemes, go hard in practice, and not screw up. It wouldn't have mattered if he was going for 4 and 4 in 10 minutes per. But he hasn't gone that route. I read a piece on him in the Washington Post earlier this month, and was shocked to read Davon Jefferson ripping him. If Davon Jefferson says the kid needs to be humbled, then there is no chance he has a friend on that team. This is the same Davon Jefferson that supposedly answered a question about what he'd do if he wasn't a basketball player that he would be a stripper. He isn't showing this kid any sympathy. Nothing is working out for him.
yeah they are all different with payment but there are at least 5 teams in every top leauge that has skipped out on a payment because its not like here in the u.s here a contract is binding. over there its suppossed to be but in most cases it isnt. the ownders over there are alot more powerful in the country then they are here. and youre right about tyler all he had to do is work hard. the good thing about him is that hes still young and still has plenty of time to turn it around. he isnt a finished product physically or mentally
