University of Colorado junior forward Tyler Bey (6-foot-7, 218 pounds) has announced his plans to leave his name in the 2020 NBA draft. Bey played 99 career games at Colorado and averaged 13.8 PTS, 9.0 REB, 1.5 STL and 1.2 BLK during his final season in 2019-2020 (shortened due to the COVID-19 pandemic).
Bey's stock definitely improved with his strong showing as a junior, but his potential role on an NBA roster has yet to be determined. His 3-point shooting improved immensely this past season, as he put up a 41.9 percentage from deep (Bey shot 30.5 percent for his career with the Buffaloes). Bey currently projects as a late first-round or, more than likely, a second-round selection.

University of Colorado shooting guard Tyler Bey declared for the 2020 NBA Draft on Sunday.
The junior is being regarded as an early second-round draft prospect for this summer. Bey has some potential as a fantasy asset based upon his ability to accumulate steals and blocks, but it's unclear what kind of a role he would carry as a rookie in the NBA. His odds to become a defensive ace, who also develops consistent range from deep, is what NBA squads will be calculating when they look at him on draft day.
