Nets recall Tornike Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor from Springfield Armor


The Nets announced today that they have recalled Tornike Shengelia and Tyshawn Taylor from their NBA D-League affiliate, the Springfield Armor. They will be at Nets' practice today, which is being held at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn, as part of Veterans Day commemoration.

Both players were sent to Springfield this past weekend for the start of the team's training camp, with Shengelia being recalled for Saturday's game against the Pacers -- because of Andrei Kirilenko's injury -- before being sent back down.

So, what's going on, you ask? Weren't they both supposed to be sent down in order to get some burn? Well, the D-League season starts on November 22, so there's time before the Armor actually play.

This "tour" is said to be bureaucratic, that the team wanted them on hand for the Fort Hamilton practice Monday and needed to call them up. Still,  I'm sure we're going see both players bouncing back and froth between the D and the Association over the next handful of months.
