NCAA Tournament NBA Draft Prospect TV Schedule: Friday
March 17, 2016

Tyler Lydon is likely the best long-term prospect of the bunch. At 6'10, he brings a rare combination of fluid athleticism, 3-point shooting, and timing as a shot-blocker. He's a major sleeper NBA prospect for future drafts.

2014 FIBA U18 Americas Championship: US Scouting Reports
June 25, 2014

Jonathan Givony

Strengths
-Has a nice frame that should fill out in time. Big shoulders
-Good wingspan
-Solid athlete. Fluid and mobile
-Decent skill-level on the perimeter
-Very nice shooting stroke. Can make catch and shoot 3-pointers when left open
-Can create off the dribble a bit in straight line
-Rotates for blocks
-Crashes offensive glass. Competitive guy
-Intelligent player. Plays within himself

Weaknesses
-Still filling out physically. Lack of strength affects him in every facet of the game
-Cannot utilize his size inside the paint
-Struggles to finish around the basket
-Poor defensive rebounder
-Lacks a degree of toughness
-Little bit upright on perimeter defensively

Outlook Stretch four with a nice skill-level. Still raw in many facets of the game but shows a solid framework to improve as he gets stronger and matures. Was not particularly productive in this year's EYBL. May be better suited in more structured settings playing alongside other good players. Plays a coveted position in today's basketball. Looks likely to outplay his current recruiting ranking.
