Summary:
Terry Taylor is an athletic, energetic swingman that put up strong numbers on Austin Peay during his four-year career in college basketball.  He is a productive player that plays bigger than his listed size, and he essentially was an inside player in college.  Throughout his collegiate career, he was able to get over 2000 points and 1000 rebounds in his collegiate career.

On the downside, he will need to improve his jump shot, and he will likely need to adjust to playing more out on the perimeter.  He will need to extend his shooting range, and he will have to improve his ability to pass and handle the basketball.  He was a very productive player in college, but he will have to adjust to play his projected NBA position and he didn’t often face top-notch competition this past season.  Currently, he projects to be a borderline second round candidate in the 2021 draft.
