Tres Tinkle is a smart, skilled forward whose versatility could allow him to thrive as a role player in the NBA. On the other hand, he possesses just average physical tools and has been injury prone throughout his career, and he may need to show that he can adjust to more of a supporting role at higher levels. Right now, he may project to be a second round prospect for the 2020 draft.
