Nets’ Taylor out to make his point
The Nets are still in the market for a backup point guard, but Deron Williams’ understudy next season already may be on the roster.
While Jason Kidd’s head coaching debut will be the biggest Nets storyline when the franchise’s entry in the Orlando Summer League begins play Sunday afternoon against Detroit, the five games there next week are equally important to the future of second-year point guard Tyshawn Taylor.
“Well, we don’t look at it as a hole,” Kidd said of the open backup point guard spot. “This is Tyshawn’s chance to show us as a coaching staff that he wants to be the backup. He has every opportunity for that spot, and I’m going to do everything to push him so he can get it.”
