Ole Miss Star Breein Tyree Looks to Hear Name Called in NBA Draft

Ole Miss Star Breein Tyree Looks to Hear Name Called in NBA Draft

In a normal setting, the NBA Draft is held in late June, only a month-and-a-half after March Madness, but 2020 has been everything but normal. This year the NBA Draft had been delayed, but after months spent working out, training, and refining their game, the players’ day has finally come.

Tonight’s draft kicked off at 8 PM ET on ESPN, and former Ole Miss great Breein Tyree hopes his name will be called in the annual event.

After a four-year SEC career, Tyree put his name in the record books after a career where he earned first team all-SEC honors twice and scored almost 1,800 points. Last season Tyree averaged over 19 PPG, 3.7 RPG, and 2.5 APG.

Earlier this evening, Rebels’ head coach Kermit Davis tweeted his support of Breein’s NBA potential, and now it’s up to one of 30 NBA General Managers to feel the same.

Tyree hopes to join former Ole Miss player and current Toronto Raptors’ guard Terence Davis in the NBA. According to many experts, Tyree could be a second-round prospect who could hear his name called. But even if that doesn’t happen, Tyree will have NBA interest as an undrafted free agent (UDFA). Some players in years past have opted to go as an UDFA in order to make sure they get to the right team with the right opportunity.

We wish Breein the best on his special day, and as always, HOTTY TODDY! All of Rebel Nation is behind you and supports you!
