Tyler Lydon signed his first professional basketball contract last month, a deal with the Denver Nuggets that will pay the Elizaville native what he described as “life-changing money.” But, despite the whirlwind of NBA experiences — some highs and some lows — and overnight celebrity that have filled his recent weeks, the Pine Plains product is still driving his 2013 truck. “I’ve never been a guy that likes expensive things,” Lydon said with a chuckle. “I’m a country boy at heart. Plus I’m too big for a sports car anyway.”
The Denver Nuggets have signed rookie F Tyler Lydon to a multi-year contract, President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly announced today. Lydon, 6-10, 215, spent two seasons at Syracuse University where he averaged 11.6 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.1 steals in 71 games (34 starts). He was named All-ACC Honorable Mention as a sophomore after averaging 13.2 points, a team-high 8.6 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steals per game.
