    Mike Taylor Waived

    Former I-State guard Mike Taylor was waived today by the Memphis Grizzlies. It's decision time for Taylor as he will have to decide whether to head overseas or compete once again in the D-League.

    Also, Will Blalock was waived by the Nets today.

    Who knows...we may see an all Iowa State backcourt with the Iowa Energy this season with Curtis Stinson, Taylor and Blalock all possibilities.

    No cyclone fan can drive all the way to Des Moines: its too far, too expensive, and everyone hates wells fargo. In fact, no one will ever step foot in there again.

    Re: Mike Taylor Waived

    I thought Taylor actually looked pretty good at times on the Clippers. What happened? Or did he just have a couple sweet highlights like the cool dunk?

    He did play well last year. He was just a victim of numbers with the Clippers this off-season. They made a few trades and he was the only one left on the team without a guaranteed contract, so he was the easiest to get rid of.

    He struggled a bit this fall with the Grizzlies and was beat-out for the back-up PG job by UCONN's Marcus Williams. Way too many turnovers, which has been and continues to be his nemesis. Same story, he will make a spectacular play, then botch a routine one.

    He's still young and if he can get himself under control, he will wind up back in the NBA before long.

    add damien staple to that list, he's back in Iowa after playing in europe for a few years. I actually was working with him for a while towards the end of the summer before I moved to Iowa City. He said he was likely going to be trying out for some teams.
