America East NBA Workouts

Jairus Lyles has a workout with the Wizards on the 22nd.

http://www.nba.com/wizards/wizards-d...rkouts-5/22/18

Any other America East players getting any workouts?

I haven’t heard anything on TBH since Final Four and the senior game/3 on 3.

Maybe he also gets a token tryout with hometown Raptors?

As a UVM fan I would be shocked if TBH draws more attention than Lyles. TBH was a great role model with a tremendously hard work ethic and high basketball IQ. That will be more than enough for him to be well represented in the UVM record books. But unfortunately TBH was not born with the talent or athleticism needed to draw attention from NBA scouts. The truth is Lyles is the only player in the conference with the attributes the scouts are looking for.

It may sound ridiculous but Lyle's performance vs UVA alone might be enough to pique the interest of the scouts. It's crazy, but just ONE breakout performance in the post season can really catapult an athlete's prospects. Just look at Donte DiVencenzo. His stock has soared to a possible top-15 pick after being projected late-second round/undrafted.

I want whats best for the conference and that's putting all my eggs in the basket for Jairus Lyles!!

Re: America East NBA Workouts

I know Henson has already hired an agent and been working out with a trainer/group of guys looking to play pro ball.

I haven't heard anything about TBH, but he could go D-league or go play in one of the better European leagues.

It's very hard for any player from the America East to jump straight to one of the upper-echelon, top tier European leagues without a passport that allows them to play as a native and not an "import". When you think back over the years, I can only think of Coppenrath (Greece/Euroleague), John Holland (French ProA), and Kenny Adeleke (Top League in Israel) as recent AE alums who went right to upper level European leagues immediately after college.

Even Jamar Wilson went to Belgium, which wasn't quite a top-tier league, to start his career. Ditto for where TJ Sorrentine started at.

Additionally, point guard is the least in-demand position for import players overseas (the general rule of thinking being that European teams can grow their own point guards, and they are only going to use one of their two import spots on either a big man, or wing who can be go to scorers).

For a very undersized PG who can't really shoot the ball and is coming from a league / level that European teams look down at, I don't see TBH starting anywhere above mid-level Europe... He could carve out a nice career overseas, but I don't see him ever reaching the upper levels over there...

Agreed that Lyles is the only one that has the raw talent to get a look...ultimately his lack of size/length is what will prevent him from getting serious looks.

Re: America East NBA Workouts

He had his workout today and apparently acquitted himself pretty well. But there are valid points about his size and quickness.

But players can improve a great deal working full time with pro resources.

With that said I donít know if he projects as a PG.

Lyles himself said he projects as a PG due to his size. He's been putting a lot of work in on his ball control and handle since March.

Re: America East NBA Workouts

How nice would it be if Lyles ends up inthe G-league and gets a late season call up like Warney. Maybe the AE gets a couple of recent grads in the league at the same time.

I know Drew U from UVM has an agent and expects to play overseas.

Drew was arguably the most improved player in the AE last year and he has the type of game that could translate very well overseas. Letís not forget that Drew is also closer to 6í10 after a documented growth spurt a couple years ago. If he keeps his nose down, he could end up in a middle league and have a very nice career.

If Lyles does a few more workouts and they go well, my guess is weíll see him in a summer league.
