I don't know what his NBA chances are but he would have been a NFL TE based on combine #'s alone.
I like your creativity, but playing the position is more than just being big and athletic. Would he be a good route runner? Could he run block and pass protect? Unless he's played football for several years, I would say no right now to all of those, and obviously you have to do all of those well to play the position in the NFL.

Taylor Griffin should be an NFL tightend
"The way I figure it, everyone takes a beating..."
Don't think he was saying he should enter the draft. Think he was just saying he looks like a TE and seems to have some traits of a TE..... Maybe like some NFL Hall of Famers that's played college basketball. Pretty sure we all know he would have to block and run good routes. Don't forget hands. Can he even catch the ball? But what IF he could do all those things?
I used to be a jh/Hs coach so stealing kids off of the basketball and soccer team was my version of recruiting..lol
No he wouldn't be in on obvioise run downs and TE patterns aren't that hard to teach. At 6'8" he could easily been able to go to the Lb zone and jump ball once or twice a game.
He can obviously catch a ball. He catches a basketball. I thought Sallier from the early 90s should have played TE.
I was being sarcastic. But any way.
There are several NFL players who never played college football. One in particular was Cornell Green of the Dallas Cowboys. He was an outstanding basketball player for Utah State (I think). The Cowboys made him a DB and he was named to several pro bowls. If a great athlete like Taylor Griffin or Romero Osby was committed to playing in the NFL, they would have a chance to make it.
It's an interesting thought. I recall that both of the Griffin brothers were discussed by some who wished they played football. But I also heard that neither Blake nor Taylor ever even played organized football (at least when they got to their teens).
