Summary:

Tyler Burton is a mobile, skilled swingman that could project into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA.  He can score the basketball in a variety of ways, and he will put himself in good spots defensively to get stops.  He’s not an elite athlete and he will need to prove that he can consistently succeed against upper echelon opponents.  Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate for the 2023 draft.
