Jordan Taylor RumorsAll NBA Players
The Basketball Tournament, a single-elimination event in which the winning team will earn $1 million, will feature more than 40 former NBA players, including Royce White, Nate Robinson and Brian Scalabrine. The event began a year ago with a prize of $500,000 and featured 55 teams. This season, the field will include 97 teams after the open application process closed last week. The tournament will begin July 10-12, and the field will be split up into four regions: Philadelphia (Northeast), Atlanta (South), Chicago (Midwest) and Los Angeles (West).
Jordan Taylor will play the NBA Summer League with the Toronto Raptors. The PG spent his rookie season as pro with Virtus Roma’s jersey. Taylor has a contract for next season with Virtus Roma with an NBA escape.
Jordan Taylor re-signed with Virtus Roma for one more year, as Sportando anticipated yesterday. The new contract of the American PG is till June 2014. In the new agreement there is also an NBA Escape to exercise by August 1.
Bryan Colangelo was yesterday in Rome to see the practice of Virtus. The president and GM of the Toronto Raptors talked with the three NBA prospects of Virtus at the end of practice: Gigi Datome, Gani Lawal and Jordan Taylor. Gigi Datome was the main reason of Colangelo’s trip in the Italian capital. The captain of Virtus Roma could move to the NBA next season, despite one year remaining on his contract with Virtus.
Jordan Taylor is leaning toward accepting an offer to play on the Milwaukee Bucks’ Summer League team in Las Vegas next month. The former star point guard for the University of Wisconsin men’s basketball wasn’t among the 60 picks in Thursday night’s NBA draft, so he’ll try to make a roster as an undrafted free agent.
