HOOPS WORLD
Well-rounded with plenty of experience and athleticism. Has become a knockdown shooter. Defends very well. An efficient scorer.

NBA DRAFT INSIDER
Taylor is a great athlete. That is widely known. For his size Taylor is an elite rebounder and can play both the two and the three with his athleticism. He has very quick hands in passing lanes as well as in man-to-man settings on the wing.
