Tyler will be waived by the Lakers so he can play overseas in China, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Tyler would have struggled to get any playing time on the Lakers this season, even if he did make the team, so it's not all too surprising that he's deciding to make money elsewhere. Considering the move, he obviously won't factor into fantasy this season.

Tyler scored his first points of the preseason, ending with six points (3-5 FG) and grabbed five rebounds, with an assists and a block in 11 minutes Sunday.

Tyler, who is on the Lakers' training camp roster took advantage of the fact that Ryan Kelly (hamstring) and Ed Davis weren't active to get among the scoring. He is a long shot to make the roster with so many frontcourt options already signed to guaranteed deals.

The Lakers don't have much need of added depth up front, so Tyler's chances of making the team out of camp are relatively slim.

Tyler was waived by the Kings on Saturday, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Tyler, whose contract for the season was set to become guaranteed later this month, was acquired from the New York Knicks in a trade earlier this summer. The move will allow Sacramento to free up more space under the salary cap. Tyler will try to catch on with another team before training camps begin.

Tyler was dealt from the Knicks to the Kings on Wednesday, USA Today reports.

Tyler, a 23-year-old big man, played in just 41 games for the Knicks last season, posting averages of merely 3.6 points and 2.7 rebounds. At an athletic 6-10, 250 pounds, Tyler is a decent prospect, but is expected to be waived by the Kings.

Jeremy Tyler is expected to start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

With Amare Stoudemire (rest) and Tyson Chandler, The Knicks are out of options at center for the most part. On Monday without Chandler and STAT on the bench, Tyler played center for every other possession except for the last 43 seconds of garbage time. That playing time went to Cole Aldrich, who should get in the mix tonight and possibly start so coach Mike Woodson has something off the bench. In the small sample size, Tyler has been effective in pick and roll and has been solid in scoring on the offensive glass. He's far from a sure thing, but he has a chance to eclipse his season high of 23 minutes tonight.

Jeremy Tyler put up his first double-double of the season on Friday with 12 points, 11 boards, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

It's the second double-double of his career with his first coming during his rookie season back in 2011-12. Tyler picked up some garbage time, but the good news is he's coming around and is actually developing some moves in the low post. If the Knicks suffer another injury, he'll be on the radar in some formats.

Jeremy Tyler has been recalled from the D-League BayHawks.

Tyler was sent down on Wednesday as a way to get him some more practice time during the Knicks' off day and will now rejoin the team on Thursday. Tyler is coming off his best game of the year during Tuesday's blowout win over Boston and, while those number were inflated by garbage time, he could provide some value for fantasy owners in deeper leagues if he is able to secure the backup center role behind Tyson Chandler.

Jeremy Tyler scored a season-high 17 points to go along with five rebounds and two blocks on 7-of-9 shooting in 21 minutes off the bench on Tuesday.

He benefitted from some garbage time in the blowout, but had eight points and five rebounds against the Bobcats on Friday. It looks like he might have secured the backup center job with this performance, so owners in deeper leagues might want to take notice.

Jeremy Tyler scored a season-high eight points against the Bobcats during Friday's 125-96 win to go with five boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

He didn't look bad tonight and even caught an alley-lop from J.R. Smith. Tyler has some talent, but he's a bit of a mistake-prone guy and it will limit his minutes. He can be ignored in most leagues.
