Tyshawn Taylor, Toko Shengelia head back to Springfield

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Teams with the most successful D-League programs, like the Rockets and Spurs, often shuttle their rookies and other young players back and forth between the parent club and the D-League affiliate. The Nets haven't done that much with the Armor. Two years ago, Terrence Williams did what was amounted to a punishment tour (that helped improve his trade value). Last year, Jordan Williams spent a couple of weeks with the Armor to help him with conditioning among other things. Both were traded.

Now, with the roster healthy and their rookies in need of playing time, the Nets have the luxury of shuttling Tyshawn Taylor and Toko Shengelia between Brooklyn and Springfield. Last month, they went down (up?) to Springfield for a single game. Taylor finished with 32 points and Shengelia with a triple-double. Tuesday, they got tickets to Springfield for another D-League turn. They're expected to play Thursday vs. the Maine Red Claws. With the Nets on the road till next Monday, it's likely the two will be available for duty when the Armor play Saturday vs. the Santa Cruz Warriors and Sunday again vs. Maine.

The Armor are 6-15, last in the D-League's Eastern Conference and in need of athletes. Shengelia, at 21, will be the youngest member of the Armor.
