Saskatoon-born Trey Lyles set to make mark in NBA

Trey Lyles went from the hockey rink to the basketball court at age seven and never looked back.

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.
