Tyren Johnson: Born on July 24, 1988 in New Orleans, Louisiana, this basketball player soon got the unbelievable attention of the spectators and the public mainly due to his physical attributes particularly his wingspan. He is barely 6’7 tall but with an amazing 6’8 wingspan. These attributes are helping Tyren Johnson establish a basketball career, even if he’s still waiting for his big break. Collegiate Career: Despite his not so impressive height, he got accepted to be one of the exclusive players during his collegiate years in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette which has its fair share in the winning history of the sport. Tyren Johnson had fairly-impressive collegiate stats of 17.9 ppg to go along with his 7.9 rpg. Teams
Played For: He had played with various teams such as the Rio Grande VV in the D-League. He was also briefly a part of the Indiana Pacers in the NBA. He also played for Aalstar in the Belgian league. Career Stats: He basically has no years of experience in the regular season as he had been undrafted in 2010 which considered him to be an Unrestricted FA or Unrestricted Free Agent. This means that any team can pick him up right now. On December 9, 2011, he signed a contract with the Indiana Pacers but that lasted for a short while only. On December 24, 2011, Tyren Johnson officially became a free agent after the team placed him on waivers.
Best Year Stat Wise: With basically zero experience in the NBA, one can consider the 2009-2010 of his collegiate career to be his best year. He averaged almost 18 ppg and 8 rpg in 36.1 mpg. He was above average in the field, shooting 50%. He was also decent in the 3 ball area with a 36% shooting clip. He also averaged 3 apg and almost 2 spg which are very good averages for his position. He also averaged 1.47 bpg. Obviously, NBA teams feel that he’ll be unable to translate his collegiate game to the pros. Awards and Accomplishments: Despite his not so remarkable career, he was still able to have his fair share of awards. He earned the Sun Belt Player of the Year in 2010. On the same year, he also earned a spot on the All-Sun Belt First Team. From the looks of it, he’ll be one of those above-average college players that never got the chance to show their wares in the big league.
