Tyler Lydon is a smart, skilled basketball player with a good set of all-around skills that could allow him to succeed in the NBA.
He can score in any number of ways, as his size and shooting make him a solid marksman from downtown. Lydon is also a quick, rangy defender that will defend his opponents with his length, as he is also a very good shot blocker.
While Syracuse has something of a rep for not churning out elite defenders in the NBA, Lydon appears to be a candidate that can help defeat that notion, as he could be a solid, two-way player in the league.
