Taylor was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Rockets last season and played sparingly in four games for the NBA squad last year. He spent most of his time improving his craft in the D-League last year with Rio Grande Valley, racking up 21 points per game and six dimes per contest.
He played well this summer in the Las Vegas Summer League and had a chance to make the team in camp. However, he was cut from the roster last Friday in favor of professional best friend and veteran point guard Bobby Brown.
Atlanta is getting an exciting young guard with some NBA run and a guy with a lot of potential. Congrats on your contract IT!
