Most players who have entered the 2015 NBA D-League Draft are simply those young guns who are hoping to make a name for themselves and otherwise get their foot in the door. Fresh out of college or perhaps coming off a year of professional ball overseas, their journeys are, more or less, just beginning.
But as we've mentioned before, there are set to be a few familiar faces available in the draft as well. These will be those veterans who have graced big stages before, but are hopeful of returning to the minor league for a second look.
Count Kammron Taylor in as one of those very players.
Now 31 years old, Taylor's basketball career has already taken him all over the world; Spain, Turkey, France, Greece, Ukraine, and Germany, to name a few. The veteran guard has also participated in multiple NBA Summer League stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves, among others. In 2013, he went to training camp with the Boston Celtics.
Following camp, he went on to join the D-League affiliated Maine Red Claws that season. However, just nine games in, a season-ending journey left him with unfinished business.
Taylor has made his way back to the professional circuit, even going on to play in Venezuela last season. But his hunger to prove himself via the D-League (and perhaps in turn, the NBA) is still very prevalent. With that in mind, Taylor has entered his name into the 2015 D-League Draft player pool, RidiculousUpside.com has learned. Surely, he's hoping to use such a platform to achieve a bit of redemption.
The guard averaged 6.2 points and 2.2 assists for Maine in the limited action during the 2013-14 season.
