Born in Saskatoon, the 6-10 basketball phenom is poised to be the first player born in the city to get drafted in the NBA. Speculation in sports publications has him going anywhere from No. 4 to No. 20.
Lyles was born on the prairies but moved to Indiana in grade school.
By high school, he'd caught the eye of scouts and ended up playing for the talent-laden University of Kentucky.
The NBA draft is tonight.
