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.
