2012 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Tyshawn Taylor


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-3, 185

School: Kansas, Senior


Strengths:
  • At his best in transition
  • Creates for his teammates
  • Drive and dish ability
  • Attacking the basket
  • Can break down defenders in iso situations
  • Athleticism
  • Is not afraid of initiating contact inside
  • Three-point shooting
  • Active on the defensive end
  • Length for a point guard
  • Could probably play either guard spot at the next level



    Weaknesses:
  • Has way too many lapses where he is careless with the basketball
  • Decision-making
  • Free-throw shooting
  • Should be a more effective rebounder than he is

    Summary: Taylor is finally living up to his potential after two years of underachieving as the Kansas point guard. However, he still is somewhat frustrating to watch due to his lapses in judgement and poor decision-making. Taylor has first-round talent but more than likely is a second-round pick due to his inconsistencies in being a true point guard.

    Player Comparison: Jerryd Bayless. Like Bayless, Taylor is more of a scoring point guard than a true floor general. Both guys are extremely athletic and are at their best when attacking the basket, while also being able to knock down three-pointers. Bayless has played some two guard during his NBA career, and Taylor should be able to as well.
