NBA Bound: Jermaine Taylor Too Big For D-League?

Jermaine Taylor may have attracted the attention of some NBA teams after a special performance back in March in a D-League game, dropping 49 points in Maine’s 115-108 victory over the Springfield Armor.

What made the victory even sweeter is that he did so by shooting 67 percent from the field. Taylor made 20 of his 30 shots and even sunk all seven of his shots from the charity stripe.

Since returning to the D-League from overseas, Taylor has averaged 30.2 points on 50 percent shooting from the field, 3.6 rebounds, and 3 steals per contest. The young player was fortunate enough to spend time on the Kings and the Rockets, but those relationships didn’t last long.

Taylor appears to have the scoring, defense and athletic abilities to survive in the NBA, now it’s just a matter of which team will give this baller an opportunity.
