    Mike Taylor Waived By Clippers

    Too bad for Mike T, hopefully he finds another home in the NBA.

    Hopefully he can find some place in the NBA and not have to go back to the D-League.

    Re: Mike Taylor Waived By Clippers

    I thought they were liking him? (The little I follow the NBA)

    Is this a performance move entirely? Or more of a roster move?

    Re: Mike Taylor Waived By Clippers

    Someone will pick him up. Didn't he show some promise, in scoring 30-something against the Knicks. I could probably go for 15 against the Knicks, but still...

    They did like him, unfortunately with the trade they made acquiring three players from the T-Wolves last week, there wasn't a roster spot available and he was on a one-year contract.

    It may be tough for Mike to find a spot elsewhere with the economic situation. A lot of teams will probably not have the 15 player max roster, opting to carry 13 or 14 to save a few hundred grand instead. My guess is he will get a try-out for training camp elsewhere and end up in the D-League or making a good living overseas.

    Re: Mike Taylor Waived By Clippers

    He was 13th on the team in minutes played on a team that wound up with the 1st pick in the draft.

    I wouldn't say it's any sort of guarantee at all that he gets picked up somewhere.

    Re: Mike Taylor Waived By Clippers

    He won't start the season on a team, but he will get picked up after injuries, etc. happen mid season.

    Re: Mike Taylor Waived By Clippers

    i think he will get picked up pretty fast, he has a good burst that a team will look for off the bench.. im thinking stayin in Cal and a team like Golden State, or NO would be a good fit


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Got any link from the NBA saying this, or is this just a CF myth?

    If he can't play in the NBA, he could be our life-skills coordinator at Iowa State.
