Alex Tyus dips his toe in the NBA Draft pool

New, 10 comments

From the Gainesville Sun;

Under new NCAA rules, Tyus has until May 8 to decide whether to keep his name in the NBA draft or return for his senior season. Tyus filed paperwork to the NBA draft advisory committee this week.

"Mainly, I just want to see where I stand," Tyus told The Sun on Wednesday. "I want to go through the process, getting a chance to meet some teams, working out against other players, trying to get better."

Alex Tyus changed his game in 2009-10, facing the basket more at power forward as Vernon Macklin was asked to play low. You might remember that Tyus considered transferring at the end of last season, he was so unhappy at center. Tyus will not hire an agent and says later in the Sun article that he would only leave if he was projected in the first round.
