Tyshawn Taylor – Brooklyn Nets Guard

Updated: August 29, 2012

This PG from Kansas may just be the breakout player of the 2012 Draft (41st).  Tyshawn Taylor (@tyshawntaylor) was selected by the Portland Trailblazers with the 41st pick in the 2012 NBA Draft before being traded to Brooklyn for cash considerations.  Many teams passed on him draft night and I have a funny feeling that many will regret that decision as Taylor is a gritty and hard-nosed PG that will surely learn a ton from an All Star like Deron Williams and turn the draft snub into a source of motivation.  The Hoboken native should feel right at home in Brooklyn and with the right coaching could just be a top Rookie in 2013.  Stay tuned….
