Tyler Haws is BYU's all-time leading scorer. Now done with all four years of his college experience, the shooting guard born in Belgium is looking to take his talents to the next level.

His most recent stop was a local one. Haws had a workout with the in-state Utah Jazz this week. Like many college scoring phenoms, though, he's already facing a familiar set of doubts about his ability to defend in the NBA. "He needs to work on it, like most of them do," said Jazz player scout Walt Perrin, per Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune. "… It depends on what Tyler has right in his heart in terms of desire, dedication, determination, basketball IQ, in terms of whether or not he would be a good defender."

Haws is likely an option for the Jazz later in the draft—not at No. 12, where their lottery pick lands this year. Whether Tyler comes aboard will depend on how the rest of the team's workouts go over the next few weeks.
