Tyler Polley is an agile, skilled sharpshooter that could project into a 3 and D role in the NBA. He has good size to play multiple positions, and he can be a very good three-point shooter when he gets into a rhythm. On the downside, he tends to be too streaky at times, and he can be prone to shooting slumps. When he is on his game, he can shoot the ball really well, and in a favorable scenario, he could project into being an effective rotation player in the NBA.
