NEWS | 27/08/2015The Swedish forward makes his way here from the NBA, where we spent the last three seasons playing for the Charlotte Hornets.
As the son of the former NBA player Jeff Taylor, who had spells with the Detroit Pistons and the Houston Rockets, the Swede will provide the Whites with intensity, defensive assuredness and athletic ability. His best season in the American league came in the 2013-14 campaign, when he averaged 8 points and 2.3 rebounds over the course of the 26 games in which he featured.
Taylor made a name for himself at Vanderbilt University, where he was one of the stars of the team. In his final season of college basketball he averaged 16.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game, and also stood out in defence.
He played in the last Eurobasket
Born in Sweden, where his father finished his playing career, Real Madrid's new forward made his international debut in the 2013 Eurobasket, in a game against Slovenia. He was the team's best player during the championship, averaging 21.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 5 games, a feat that included a personal tally of 28 points against Italy.
