High school career
In April 2009, Tyler announced his intentions to skip his senior year of high school to play professionally abroad. On August 23, 2009, he signed with Maccabi Haifa of the Israeli Super League for the 2009–10 season.
On March 19, 2010, he parted ways with Maccabi due to personal matters and headed home to San Diego. Tyler played just 10 games, averaging only 2.1 points and 1.9 rebounds in 7.6 minutes per game.
On July 29, 2010, Tyler signed with the Tokyo Apache of Japan for the 2010–11 season. In 33 games, he averaged 9.9 points on 51.7% shooting and 6.4 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per game. The Apache would dissolve soon after he left due to the impact of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Tyler was selected with the 39th overall pick by the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2011 NBA draft. His rights were later traded to the Golden State Warriors for cash considerations on draft night. On December 13, 2011, he signed with the Warriors. On February 27, 2012, he was assigned to the Dakota Wizards. On March 6, 2012, he was recalled by the Warriors. For most of his rookie year he received minimal playing time, but on March 21, in a game against the New Orleans Hornets, he was named the Warriors' starting center. He subsequently remained in the team's starting line-up for the rest of the season.
On February 21, 2013, Tyler was traded to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for a future second round pick. On March 6, 2013, he was waived by the Hawks after playing in just one game. On March 18, 2013, he was acquired by the Santa Cruz Warriors.
On November 1, 2013, he was re-acquired by the Santa Cruz Warriors. On November 4, 2013, he was traded to the Erie BayHawks. On December 31, 2013, he re-signed with the Knicks. On January 28, 2014, he recorded a career high 17 points, along with 5 rebounds and 2 blocks, in a 114-88 victory over the Boston Celtics.
In July 2014, Tyler re-joined the New York Knicks for the 2014 NBA Summer League. On August 6, 2014, he was traded, along with Wayne Ellington and a 2016 second round pick, to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Quincy Acy and Travis Outlaw. On September 6, 2014, he was waived by the Kings.
On September 23, 2014, he signed with the Los Angeles Lakers. However, he was later waived by the Lakers on October 20, 2014. Five days later, he signed with Shanxi Zhongyu of China for the 2014–15 season.
