BYU’s all-time leading scorer Tyler Haws is a long shot to get taken in this week’s NBA Draft, but he has a good plan in place to play professional basketball if the NBA does not work out. He has worked out with the Suns, Jazz, Lakers, the Grizzlies and others in getting his name out there to impress a team. Overall, it has worked well as Haws set a conditioning record with the Suns and showed well in his workout with the Jazz.
Haws’ deal in place has him signing with top Spanish club Obradoiro CAB. However, if Haws does get drafted or signs with an NBA team by July 31, he can opt out of this contract. This gives Haws a chance to participate in the NBA’s Summer League, which he will no doubtingly latch onto a team with other rookies.
He would leave in the middle of August if he goes on to play for this organization. Obradoiro CAB plays in Spain’s top league, Liga ACB, or more commonly known as Liga Endesa. The best finish for Obradoiro CAB was in the 2012-13 season where it made it to the quarterfinals. Other notable teams in the league are FC Barcelona and Real Madrid Regal.
If Haws does not land with an NBA team, playing in Spain is a nice consolation prize.
