It didn’t take long for Tyler Bey to start wow­ing his new fan base.

Three years ago last month, just a few pock­ets of Col­orado fans were in the CU Events Cen­ter for the Buf­faloes’ annu­al Black-and-Gold scrim­mage before wan­der­ing over to Fol­som Field for that day’s foot­ball game. At one point Bey, then an almost painful­ly shy fresh­man with gan­g­ly limbs, secured a pass while posi­tioned just out­side the low block, with zero for­ward momen­tum to aid him, and launched him­self explo­sive­ly to the rim for a fero­cious dunk.

Those in atten­dance uttered a few star­tled gasps at the sheer, raw ath­leti­cism now lac­ing them up for the Buf­faloes. Bey dis­played his peer­less ath­leti­cism time and time again dur­ing an impres­sive CU Buffs career, and on Wednes­day night the next big step of his bas­ket­ball jour­ney fell into place as he was select­ed by Philadel­phia with the sixth pick of the sec­ond round (36th over­all).

Bey report­ed­ly was imme­di­ate­ly shipped to the Dal­las Mav­er­icks via a trade that is send­ing Seth Cur­ry back to Philadel­phia.

Bey becomes the 35th CU play­er select­ed in the NBA draft and the sixth since head coach Tad Boyle took over in 2010. That list over the past decade includes Alec Burks (first round, 2011), Andre Rober­son (first round, 2013), Spencer Din­wid­die (sec­ond round, 2014), Der­rick White (first round, 2017) and George King (sec­ond round, 2018).

“It’s a big night for Tyler and his fam­i­ly. It’s a big night for our pro­gram,” Boyle said. “Any time our guys are in the dis­cus­sion of being draft­ed, it’s excit­ing. It’s nerve-wrack­ing because you don’t know. You’re hop­ing for late first round, but if that doesn’t come that’s when it becomes a lit­tle frayed nerves, if you will.”

Bey put togeth­er a dec­o­rat­ed three-year career for the Buffs, fin­ish­ing ranked eighth in CU his­to­ry in total rebounds (800), 28th in scor­ing (1,113), 10th in blocked shots (102), and tied for 21st in steals (98). Bey’s career field goal per­cent­age of .530 is tied for 10th all-time at CU and his 31 career dou­ble-dou­bles ranks ninth.

The 6‑foot‑8 native of Las Vegas was a first-team All-Pac-12 selec­tion as a sopho­more was a sec­ond-team hon­oree last sea­son. Bey won the Pac-12’s Most Improved Play­er award in 2019 and was named the league’s Defen­sive Play­er of the Year in 2020.

Pre­dom­i­nant­ly a front court play­er dur­ing his three-year run with the Buffs, Bey will be tasked with play­ing more of a wing role at the next lev­el. He turned heads dur­ing the NBA’s series of vir­tu­al com­bine work­outs in Octo­ber, set­ting a new com­bine record for for­wards with a max ver­ti­cal leap of 43.5 inch­es.

“Obvi­ous­ly his ath­leti­cism speaks for itself giv­en that he set an NBA com­bine record for ver­ti­cal jump,” Boyle said. “So that’s excit­ing. They’re going to get a great ath­lete who works hard and is a ter­rif­ic defend­er and is going to have great, great upside.

“I talked with Tyler late last week, it was either Thurs­day or Fri­day, just to check in and see how he’s doing. I spoke to his agent and I’ve had con­ver­sa­tions with prob­a­bly three or four NBA teams over the last few weeks that have inter­est in him. And a lot over the sum­mer, obvi­ous­ly. I don’t get to see Tyler on a day to day basis any­more. In a nor­mal he might’ve come back to Boul­der and hung out with his team­mates a lit­tle bit and enjoyed cam­pus and maybe a foot­ball game. But that’s just not the we live in right now. So he’s been kind of hun­kered down in Vegas work­ing out.”

Bey was the eighth Pac-12 play­er picked Wednes­day night, fol­low­ing the first-round selec­tions of USC’s Onye­ka Okong­wu (sixth over­all, Atlanta), Washington’s Isa­iah Stew­art (16th, Port­land), Arizona’s Josh Green (Min­neso­ta), and Pac-12 Fresh­man of the Year Zeke Nna­ji, who went to the Den­ver Nuggets at No. 22.

Ore­gon guard Pay­ton Pritchard (26th, Boston) and Wash­ing­ton fresh­man Jaden McDaniels (28th, Los Ange­les Lak­ers) also went in the first round. Stanford’s Tyrell Ter­ry was select­ed by Dal­las with the first pick of the sec­ond round before Bey was tak­en by five spots lat­er.
