Draft Notes

Javonte “JJ” Taylor is a 5-star prospect who has a lot of upside but will take some time to develop.

Taylor is a versatile forward who has nice size on the wing, can handle on the ball, hit the outside shot.

He’s at his best taking the ball to the rim with his quick first step, explosion and good length and finishing ability.
