Default What Happened To NBA player Maurice Taylor?


He was most recently with the NBA's Sacramento Kings, released on January 23, 2007. Taylor is a big, semi-athletic and has a decent mid-range shooting touch. After starting his NBA career in a promising fashion, his numbers have slipped, and he has developed a reputation for being an underachiever. He averaged 17 points per game and 6.5 rebounds in the 1999-2000 NBA season. I know some teams that could use a player like this and he is only 31

I guess he's just looking for a job maybe. But this guy can play, he used to be the Clippers' leading scorer in 2000, he certainly can put up numbers, he'd be a good add to any team really.

Yeah he would be good on a team like the Celtics or Magic who need another scoring big man.

Maybe he never adjusted from being a starter to being a reserve.

His defense was always atrocious.

Hated watching him play with the knicks. He came off as a no defensive/attitude/turnover ******. Glad he is out of the league.

I guess he's done, I haven't heard much from him. He's 31 and I guess he's home enjoying the good life.

Loot is right on about Fat Mo Taylor...good scorer (that's all he wanted to do) and not much else. You can critize the Clippers about a lot of things in their history, but one of the best things they ever did was not giving him that max-out contract that he wanted. I hate to think what would happened if they did.
