Tyler James Conley (born August 19, 1998) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Alaska Arctics of the Furry Basketball Association (FBA). He played college basketball at Ursa State University and was drafted 27th overall in the second round of the 2018 FBA Draft by the Tallahassee Typhoons.


Born in Burbank, California, Conley attended Reggie Dale High School, playing as the Sixth Fur at the forward position. He helped lead his team into the varsity basketball tournament in 2017, his senior year. His team won the championship and he earned Sixth Fur of the Year. Conley graduated high school with a scholarship to Ursa State University.

In his season with Ursa State University, Conley played a sporadic role, playing as a starter some games and coming off the bench in others. He was not a prominent prospect, but a promising one ranked 6th among the 17 other forwards in the 2018 class. He was the team's third leading scorer, averaging 17.6 points, 5.2 assists, 6.7 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 0.9 blocks. That gave him enough recognition from FBA scouts to have his name accepted into the draft pool.

Early Life & High School

Tyler Conley was born in Burbank, California to Sarah and James Conley. His mother was a volleyball player in high school and a cheerleader in college, while his father was a track runner and tennis player. James thought of playing professionally as a tennis player, but he abandoned his goals when Sarah became pregnant with Tyler. The Conley's were a happy family until Sarah lost her mother to cancer in 2013. She picked drinking, making things uncomfortable at home and James would file for a divorce. In 2015, Tyler would leave his mother as well, living over at his friends, Jacob Hendricks' house.

Conley would practice outside in the driveway with his friend. He would play some pick up games at school as well, during lunch break and at the park. In his freshman year of high school, Tyler would try out for the basketball team and play alongside his friend Jacob.

Conley came off the bench his first two seasons at Reggie Dale High School. In his junior and senior year, he would be in the same role but played more minutes. His coach would use him for key moments in the game, especially if they needed a stop. College scouts were impressed with his raw defensive talents, as well with his blessed height. He grew from 6'2" to 6'7" in his first three years with the basketball team.

At the end of his senior year, Conley was named Sixth Fur of the Year after beating Monterey High in a tournament. He averaged a total of 18.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game. He would receive a scholarship from a group of schools, which most were very local but he would take his chances at Ursa State University, Wyoming. His other offers included Fur Bay State, California State University, and UFLA.

College Career

Season in Ursa State University

Conley joined the Ursa State University Basketball Club in early November, making his debut on the 8th against Baltimore Bay. He did not finish well that game, only putting up 8 points and 5 rebounds. In Tyler's 35 games with the team, he was gaining recognition from FBA scouts and he was considered one of the best defensive forwards in the 2018 class.

In his season with Ursa State University, Conley would play a more sporadic role. He was as a starter and bench player that averaged 17.6 points, 5.2 assists, 6.7 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 0.9 blocks per game. At the end of the year, Conley had reached the end of his growth spurt and was 6'9".

Scouting Report

At a large 6’9”, Conley stands over most SF in his position, allowing him to play the power forward as well. This kid is a defensive threat and shows most of his strengths in that area. His 7’2” wingspan gives him the ability to play great on ball D; contest shots, get steals, and block shots at the rim. His foot work needs help while playing smaller players like guards.

On the offensive end he is not as great but average. His strong area is the pick and roll with him handling the ball, making plays for himself or for other teammates. He can finish at the rim if there is an open path to the lane and can shoot the mid range at a high level. At the end of his Ursa State University year he shot .54% from the field, .27% from behind the three point line and shot .92% from the free throw line.

Personal Life

Conley was an only child growing up. He spent the rest of his teen years at his friend's house after losing his grandmother to cancer, which made his mother, Sarah, pick up alcohol. It is unknown where his father's whereabouts are after filing a divorce. Conley has a girlfriend, Beller, head coach of the Las Vegas Wildcards. The two started dating after meeting at a (sports agency) after party in the fall of 2019. Some question if he was traded to Vegas solely for that reason.

Professional Career

Las Vegas Wildcards (2019-present)

Conley was drafted 27th overall in the 2018 FBA Draft by the Tallahassee Typhoons. Conley got his first ever Player of the Game on December 19, 2018 where had 16 points, 4 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal, and 2 blocks against the Seattle Summit. He ended his rookie season being one of the best shooters at the charity stripe, .90%.

In the summer of 2019, Conley would sign a contract with sports agent, (agent name), from (sports agency). He was the first player to ever sign with them.

On December 16, 2019, Conley was traded to the Las Vegas Wildcards. He would make his debut as a Wildcard a week after the trade on December 23, 2019. He would finish the rest of the 2019-2020 season with them, then re-sign his contract in free agency ($4.5/2yrs).
