I wish him the best. He is a good guy and a great ambassador for the school. Iím so glad I can say I got to see him play as much as I did.

Article from the Baltimore Sun on Lyles’s prospects, as well as an evaluation from Ryan Odom.

His next stop is Toronto, where he has a tryout with the Raptors.

Bell-Haynes was one of 40 invited to the NBA's Global Camp in Italy as a pre-draft showcase: https://basketball.realgm.com/wireta...obal-Camp-2018

Good way to get eyes on him from teams abroad.

TBH had 8 points (3/6 shooting) and 1 assist in 26 minutes in game one. Looks like he was outshined on the other end by the other point guard from Poland, but for him it's more important to be consistent and impress scouts from non-NBA teams.

There is a livestream of the event: http://nbaglobalcamp.com/livestream/

TBH's team plays Sunday at 3:30 central European time, which is 9:30 tomorrow morning east coast time.

Re: America East NBA Workouts

Final day, TBH played 24 minutes, 2 points, 3 rebounds, 7 assists, was +21 on the floor, leading his team. https://twitter.com/DraftExpress/sta...86921869656064

It'll be interesting what these two games do for him in terms of attention he'll get from overseas. He could get a summer league invite, but I'd be surprised. Lyles most assuredly will get a summer league spot.

Re: America East NBA Workouts

Lyles needs to greatly improve his ball handling and play making skills and he likely has the best shot, but even then, it's pretty remote. His only position at the next level is PG, and he really only played SG his entire college career although I thought his playmaking improved a lot last season, it's still not what it would need to be in the NBA.

TBH will have as long a career as he wants to have overseas, but that's likely his ceiling. Now more than ever, you really need to be able to shoot the ball very well from every spot on the court, no matter your size, and his 3pt shot while adequate is nowhere near developed enough plus his slight build makes him a European prospect.

Re: America East NBA Workouts

With good coaching and the resources of a decent pro team, itís remarkable how much better college players can get once their focus is solely on basketball.

Not to say TBH or Lyles will ever make that leap but itís possible both have upsides we havenít seen yet.

With that said, I agree both are probably Euro players given the freakish athletes in the NBA.

Lyles will definitely get a legitimate shot at the G-League to show if he can transition to a PG.

NBA Tryout number FOUR for Jairus today in Portland.

Here is a video of him putting in that work - https://twitter.com/nbcsnorthwest/st...13266592317440

I am so excited for him.

Re: America East NBA Workouts

You can already see the work he has put in is paying off on his shot. But, my guess is he needs to make his motion quicker.

But I am excited for him too.

Re: America East NBA Workouts

How cool would it be for the AE if Warney, Lyles, and J.J Barea get to suit up and possibly play in the NBA next season. I've only watched Lyles in person at Patric Gym, but he looks like an NBA prospect. The G-league can really help guys develop. I can't wait to see how his game progresses over the next few years.

Don't forget John Holland -- he's an America East Alum who has established himself as a legit NBA player for the Cavs.

I think the last (and maybe only) time the AE had four alums in the NBA at the same time was 2001-2002 when Vin Baker, Malik Rose, Speedy Claxton and Norman Richardson were all in uniform... three of those four were legit NBA contributors too.
