The StarterDeron WilliamsHeight: 6-3 | Weight: 209Experience: 8 Years
2012-13 Stats:18.9 PPG | 7.7 APG | .440 FG% | .378 3P%
The 29-year-old Williams – finally healthy after the All-Star Break – put up a staggering second half for Brooklyn, regaining the form that earned him All-NBA recognition and a spot on two gold-medal-winning US Men's National Teams. Surrounded by shooting talent, Williams could top 10 assists per game, a plateau he's reached four times in his career.
The ReservesShaun LivingstonHeight: 6-7 | Weight: 175Experience: 8 Years
2012-13 Stats:6.3 PPG | 3.3 APG | 22.0 MPG
Livingston, originally drafted No. 4 overall by the Clippers in 2004, has remade his game following a gruesome knee injury that limited his burst. The 6-foot-7 guard uses his height well, remaining a strong finisher around the rim, while running an offense efficiently – even at a high pace.
Tyshawn TaylorHeight: 6-3 | Weight: 185Experience: 1 Year
2012-13 Stats:2.2 PPG | .462 3P% | 5.8 MPG
An athletic, fiesty defender, Taylor spent his rookie season learning to make the transition to NBA floor general. Taylor can easily slash into the lane, but reaching the next level depends on an ability to discern when dishing off is more appropriate than his favored floater. He did show an improved three-point shot in limited action, connecting on 6-of-13 attempts.
