They're Back! Brooklyn Nets Recall Toko Shengelia, Tyshawn Taylor after one game

Mike Ehrmann

The Nets announced Saturday that Tyshawn Taylor and Tornike Shengelia, who played one game in the D-League, have been brought back from Springfield and will be available for Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

The two had big games for the Armor despite losing to the Erie Bayhawks Friday night in Springfield. Taylor had 32 points on 13-for-28 shooting and Shengelia had a triple double and came within two blocks and two steals of a 5x5 game.

“I think they’ve got great futures,” Armor coach Bob MacKinnon told Tim Bontemps who traveled to Springfield for the game. “I think both of them, once they learn how to play the NBA game a little bit, they’ll be very good, solid, NBA players. But they’ve got to learn.”

In sending the two down for a single game, the Nets are doing what the Rockets and Spurs have done for years, shuffling their rookies and second year players back and forth between the parent club and D-League affiliate, particularly if like the Nets this week they had extended time off. The Nets are in the midst of three-day break. With Springfield only 150 miles from Brooklyn, players can move back and forth within hours.
