On Sunday, Jermaine Taylor proved that when he receives ample playing time, he can still score in bunches. The former UCF star concluded the Las Vegas Summer League in fine fashion, totaling a game-high 21 points for Chicago in its loss to Milwaukee. The shooting guard started for the Bulls and shot 9-of-18 from the floor in 30 minutes of action.
Taylor logged time in four games in Las Vegas, but the bulk of his minutes came against the Bucks. Taylor, who is looking to latch on with an NBA team, still has the scoring ability that helped him earn All-America honors as a senior in 2008-09 when he averaged 26.2 points, good for third in the nation.
He also still has incredible athleticism, which he showed off Saturday with a vicious dunk over Mickey McConnell of the Los Angeles Clippers.
Hopefully his performance Sunday showed NBA executives that when he gets on the floor, Taylor can still put the ball in the basket.
