Jeremy Tyler — For second round or unsigned players, NBA success is a matter of seizing opportunities. Tyler has been handed a golden one this off-season, with the Warriors potentially deciding that signing a veteran back-up power forward is too rich for their blood. If they enter the season without a clear back-up for David Lee, those minutes will be Tyler’s to lose. He was well on his way to doing exactly that after a slow start to the summer league, but he finally showed some urgency and aggressiveness against the Heat. He got himself going with a nice open-court steal and thunderous breakaway dunk, then never looked back as he scored off a variety of basket-facing moves. He’s definitely not a traditional center, given his lack of size and strength, and he’s still figuring out a lot of power forward skills, like rebound positioning and rotating into the key to cut-off penetration. But when he’s engaged, he shows flashes of being a dependable post scorer. It’s been ages since the Warriors have had one of those, so Tyler likely will get a chance to show what he can do this season, even if his focus and intensity fluctuate at frustratingly unpredictable intervals.
