Taylor used his size to shoot 52.2 percent inside the arc, showing he can attack the rim off the dribble. Defense could be where Taylor makes a name for himself if he is willing to put in the time.
A seasoned point guard who has experienced it all over the last four years. Three-point shot improved yearly. Can get into the lane frequently. One of the better defenders at his position.
Taylor brings a number of NBA caliber qualities to the table.
