2011 NBA Draft: Warriors Purchase Rights to PF Jeremy Tyler from Bobcats

Broken by Jeff Van Gundy on ESPN the Golden State Warriors have purchased the rights for power forward Jeremy Tyler from the Charlotte Bobcats.

The 6'11" 263 pound Tyler is a San Diego native who was a highly recruited high school junior a few year's ago but decided to forego his senior year. He then broke his commitment to Louisville, and decided to play overseas. Tyler had become somewhat forgotten in this year's draft, but could turn into a top-notch big man who's a bit under the radar as of now. I think it's a great move by the front office and is just more proof that the Warriors are putting their money where their mouth is when it comes to making the team better. 

Tyler has been labeled an immature guy that lets his emotions get away from him from time to time, especially since he didn't even attempt to go to college or even finish high school. He's definitely is a bit of a gamble on behalf of the W's but if his raw skills can develop in the NBA could be a great player in the league for a long time.
