Tai Webster Rumors

The 6-foot-4 point guard from Nebraska will turn 22 years old just before the 2017 NBA draft, which may be his biggest obstacle throughout this pre-draft process. Teams fall in love with young prospects and drool over potential, even though history is littered with older players whose experience and maturity allowed them to contribute right away and have sustainable success. However, Webster views his age and experience as a positive. “I think [I have an advantage] from a maturity standpoint,” Webster told HoopsHype. “I have a good sense of what I am and what I’m not as a player. I’m not going to come in and try to do things that teams don’t need me to do. I’ve played a lot of basketball now and have a lot of experience, so I know that every team needs those guys who are willing to do the dirty work. I have no problem being one of those guys. I’m looking forward to the chance to prove to teams that I can be one of those guys.”
