Scouting Report:


Justin Taylor is an unbelievable athlete with a ton of upside. He was not always in positions to showcase his overall talent at the NCAA Division 2 level at the University of Sioux Falls where he played along a very loaded team. He showed glimpses of being a dominant player at the D2 level and in a different situation could have easily been a team’s best player. He has a 40+ inch vertical leap and dunks with authority often. He has an always improving jump shot that will only continue to get better once he is able to play his true position at the Small Forward spot. Very solid rebounder on both ends. We see him projecting well at the professional level. A guy that when given a chance in the right situation he will shine and move his way up the professional ranks
