BOULDER — Colorado's Tyler Bey was selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the second round of the 2020 NBA Draft with the 36th overall pick Wednesday night.
A native of Las Vegas, Bey was the 2019-20 Pac-12 Conference Defensive Player of the Year while earning league All-Defensive Team and All-Pac-12 Second Team honors.
Bey averaged 13.8 points, 9.0 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.2 blocks as a junior, leading the Buffaloes in the latter three categories and ranking second in scoring.
The 6-foot, 8-inch, 216-pound forward, is Colorado's third NBA Draft pick in the last four years and sixth in the 10-year Tad Boyle era.
Reports from ESPN have Bey being part of a proposed trade that will eventually land him with the Dallas Mavericks, though all proposed trades have to pass through NBA Legal before being finalized.
