Taylor Happy To Back Up Williams

KANSAS CITY, MO - MARCH 11: Tyshawn Taylor #10 of the Kansas Jayhawks reacts after defeating the Colorado Buffaloes 90-83 during their semifinal game in the 2011 Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament at Sprint Center on March 11, 2011 in Kansas City, Missouri.

With C.J. Watson's commitment, the Nets have their point guard rotation: Deron Williams starts, Watson backs up and Tyshawn Taylor learns. He seems quite willing to accept that role, particularly with D-Will as one of his teachers.

"There's probably some similarities we have, and that'll be interesting," Taylor said. "How could I not be excited about playing with Deron? There's a lot I can learn. This is still basketball, but there's more to it. I have to be ready for understanding my role and understanding my team, but I'm open to the challenge."

The Nets seemed pleased with Taylor's development in Orlando. Taken at #41, he was the top rookie scorer in the summer league at 15.5 points per game.
