Tyler Honeycutt did not have a great NBA career. After being drafted by the Sacramento Kings in the second round of the 2011 Draft, Honeycutt only played 120 minutes in 24 games over two seasons; but now, the former UCLA star has become a star in a different league.

During the Turkish Super League dunk contest on Sunday, Honeycutt threw down a dunk so impressive, it would have received 10's across the board in a NBA Dunk Contest. The 6-foot-8 forward took off from just inside the free-throw line and jumped over five people to dunk the ball.

 


The dunk was good enough for Honeycutt to win the contest and take home the $2,500 prize. He comes off the bench and averages 8.9 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. While that might not seem too impressive, his hops have never been a question. Check out a different dunk he make earlier in the EuroLeague season.
