Could Knicks Lock Up Tony Taylor Jr.?
New York could also look to formally sign a player simply in order to assign his rights to their D-League, the Erie BayHawks. This was reportedly the case with (Chris) Smith, and now the team apparently sees a similar opportunity with yet another promising young guard.
Knicks scouts brought (Tony) Taylor Jr. for another workout just this past week, and reportedly loved what they saw yet again.
It would make sense that the Bayhawks are among those squads.
Though the Knicks added three new point guards this offseason, with Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd both coming off unfavorable seasons, and Argentinian floor general Pablo Prigioni already 35 years old, the team could be making a smart move considering Taylor Jr. as the guy to be waiting in the wings for an opportunity.
