Tyler Haws Talks of His Mission After Working Out With LA Lakers

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

Tyler Haws, all-time leading scorer for BYU and recent college graduate, is currently on a whirlwind tour of NBA pre-draft workouts. Visits so far have included the Utah Jazz, Dallas Mavericks, and Phoenix Suns teams, with more on the way.

Today, after working out with the LA Lakers, Haws addressed the media, which included a question about his missionary service for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was there for two years. I played my freshman year at BYU with Jimmer, Jimmer Fredette, and then left basketball for two years and just taught people about Jesus Christ. It was an amazing experience and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. ”

You can watch the entire clip here at NBA.com. This isn’t the first time Haws has spoken about his Church membership in the sports community. Last December, the story of his mission was featured by the NCAA.
