2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Jordan Taylor


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-1, 195

School: Wisconsin, Senior


Strengths:
  • Rarely turns the ball over
  • Decision making
  • Three-point shooter
  • Catch-and-shoot ability
  • Quick release
  • Effective running pick and roll
  • Understands when to be a scorer and when to be a distributor
  • Strength helps him finish through contact
  • Solid defender
  • Chasing opponents off screens



    Weaknesses:
  • Explosiveness at the rim
  • Transition game
  • Creating for teammates
  • Will struggle guarding quicker, more athletic point guards

    Summary: Taylor is arguably one of the best point guards in the college game as he has an amazing assist-to-turnover ratio. His biggest asset at the next level might be his ability in pick and roll situations. He has the chance to make a career out of being a solid backup point guard and could get late-first-round looks.

    Player Comparison: Derek Fisher. Fisher is a physical point guard known more for his ability to lead a team and outside shooting rather his quickness or athleticism. Taylor is in the same mold as he is very crafty in knowing how to make the best out of his abilities.
