Wow. He is a defensive dog. He looks a little like Carter on D. Offensive players hate these kinds of dog-defenders.

Carter is who I thought of as well but with more defensive flexibility because of this length. I love Carter but his ability to only really defend 1 position will really limit his value if he doesn't improve his playmaking on offense(wouldn't put it past him based on how quickly he became a 3pt threat).

Yeah, i thought so too, and he has a much longer wingspan so should be even more effective. I didn't watch his offense but if he can handle and has court vision, passing and shooting, he might be more effective than Carter in time.

This was a nice surprise, I'm not sure how he went undrafted.

Ty-Shon wasn't nearly as good of a defender as Jevon at college level, but certainly capable. Can shoot, plays very rationally and feels the tempo of the game. You could say he's above average in bball smarts. Not lightning fast but has decent burst. I really think he has a place in the NBA.

Ty'shon is a friggin steal. I came to this board just to let you guys know what a GEM he is. I truly was hoping our HORNETS would sign him. I predict that not only will he make your squad but he is insurance for Booker. You will LOVE Ty'shon Alexander. This kid has alstar potential. He imo is better than Anthony Edwards.

Congrats.

I wanted HORNETS to draft him at 56. I predict if given a chance he will be better than Edwards. I saw a few of his games and this guy is the TRUTH. No weaknesses

I like the dedication to footwork and replicating form on his shot, you can tell he has been coached and put in countless hours toward that. That in its self shows drive and coach ability!!! Anytime you possess these things, you have a high chance at some good results. Good find, good get!!

I love this kind of bets. He's got red flags, obviously, but good strenghs too. I want him scoring triples when Booker rests on the bech.

Hopefully he takes advantage of getting the opportunity to practice daily with CP3. If he's hungry enough he can have a similar story to FVV (going undrafted and getting a huge contract). Not getting my hopes up, but the upside is there.
