Get To Know Him | Tyler Stone
Throughout the 2015 Summer League in Las Vegas, we'll be introducing you to a few faces on the team's roster that you might not know. Today, we'll continue with Tyler Stone.
What’s His Name?
Tyler Stone. No, not the Tyler Stone from Spider-Man.
Where Is He From?
Stone was born in Memphis, Tennessee and attended Central High School in Memphis. He then went on to player at Missouri before transferring to Southeast Missouri State.
During his only year at Missouri, Stone didn’t get much playing time. In 10 games, he averaged 2.2 points per game.
But that’s when the magic happened. Stone transferred to Southeast Missouri State and was a flat-out stud. In 94 games, he averaged 16.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game while shooting an impressive 52.1 percent from the field.
He went undrafted after college and played with the Indiana Pacers in last year’s Summer League. In four games, he averaged 4.8 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.
Last summer, he signed with Besiktas of Turkey.
How Is He Doing This Week?
Stone has only appeared in one game. He hauled in one rebound.
Where Have You Heard About Him Before?
This paragraph is likely only for people 40 or older. His father, James Bradley, was drafted 35th overall in the 1979 NBA Draft.
Unfortunately, Bradley was released three months after being drafted. Like his son, though, he was a 6’8” forward.
Describe Him For Us:
Stone is a bit of a “tweener (if people still use that word)”. He’s listed at 6’8” and can play somewhere inbetween the three and four. He’s improved on his outside shot enough where he can play the three, but defensively, he’s better off playing the four, especially with how strong he is. Just from watching him at Summer League practices, he seems like a hard worker and doesn’t try to do too much, something some Summer Leaguers do.
Best Social Media Post:
After three minutes of research, I cannot find a Twitter or Instagram account for Stone. What in the world does he do in his free time? Like actually talk to people? Weird.
