Tyler Nelson is a skilled combo guard that can shoot and score the basketball.  He had a good Portsmouth tournament, and he scored 19 points as well as the game-winning shot on the final day of the games.

While he may not possess elite physical tools, his ability to make threes, space the floor, and his intangibles could likely help enable him to make an NBA summer league team’s roster this year.
