One of the better long-term prospects at this event, German point guard David Taylor certainly has genetics working in his favor, being the son of LSU standout and NBA draft pick Derrick Taylor, now a coach in the German second divison.

Taylor's American background is obvious when looking at the way he moves on the floor. He shows good quickness and footwork handling the ball. He can also create his own shot confidently, utilizing hesitation moves and changes in direction with the ball. He also has the ability to make shots from beyond the arc. He has a good looking stroke, although his effectiveness drops when forced to shoot off the dribble.

Taylor plays with swagger, which can sometimes get him in trouble in the form of turnovers. He was a bit inconsistent in practice, but that is to be expected considering his extreme youth. Defensively, he has good potential based on his above average size and sturdy frame.

It's obviously too early to be drawing long-term conclusions about Taylor, but he has the tools and talent to develop into a nice prospect if he continues to improve over the next few years.
