New York Knicks Sign Jeremy Tyler


Jeremy Tyler’s contract with the New York Knicks is only partially guaranteed, according to RealGM: “Tyler, the No. 39 pick in the 2011 NBA draft, has averaged 3.6 points and 2.5 rebounds over 63 games with the Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Hawks. At 6-foot-10, Tyler provides depth to a Knicks frontcourt that dealt with injury issues a season ago. Tyler, 22, averaged 12.8 points and 6.4 rebounds for the Knicks in summer league, showing an elevated fitness and firm moves inside.”

    Maybe the best example in the last 5 years of a player who should have not only gone to college (duh), but FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL! His rocket-scientist father figured since he was dunking over 6’4″ centers in high school at will then he must be pro material. …..

    Word, its really a shame when you’re own parents don’t have your best interests at heart. Surprised he’s even made it this far considering the atrocious start he got off to overseas.

    Big men take the longest to develope and he look like he actually has a low post moves now and he is a big body. I like the sign since the Knicks were so small last year

    Here’s a SLAM thread from 2009 on Tyler’s decision to skip college and play internationally. EPIC … that is all > http://www.slamonline.com/online/nba/2009/04/do-you-jeremy/

    For all the hate that Jeremy Tyler got for skipping college and the trouble he had overseas, it seems like dude has got his life back on track now. I read a nice piece a few weeks back about him feeling more humble and appreciative for a summer league tryout after he was out of the L for a while. He knew what it meant to get a second chance. I’m glad for him. I mean, who among us hasn’t made stupid and immature moves as a teenager too, you know?

    I wouldn’t have a problem if it was his decision only, but his father d@mn near spearheaded the move. To not even bother to finish HS? Then send your child to a foreign land to fend for himself? With no guarantees whatsoever? That’s an incredibly irresponsible position to put your child in.

    Word. If what you say is true, his father’s been damn shady. But it’s not fair to ask the son to pay for pop’s mistakes is it? This summer, Jeremy looks like he’s figuring out what’s what. I’m happy for him.

  • Dfrance

    Oh I’m not mad at Jeremy at all. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I saw him in Golden State actually getting some minutes. Wish him the best.

    he’s 22…
