Cavaliers Sign Isaiah Taylor

AUGUST 17: The signing is official, according to RealGM’s transaction log.

AUGUST 9: The Cavaliers have agreed to a one-year deal with former Hawks point guard Isaiah Taylor, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports tweets. Taylor saw action in 67 games during his lone season in Atlanta.

The Cavs, Charania adds, had been targeting an additional point guard for the past week and will welcome aboard a 24-year-old who averaged 13.2 points and 5.6 assists over the course of nine starts in 2017/18.

Taylor recorded 6.6 PPG and 3.1 APG overall in his 67 contests last season for the Hawks after initially debuting for the Rockets during the 2016/17 campaign. He appeared in just four games at the end of the season for Houston.

If he earns a spot on the Cavs’ regular season roster, Taylor will look to push veteran George Hill and 2018 lottery pick Collin Sexton for minutes at the point for Cleveland.

    I’ll assume a trade is coming as the Cavs are loaded with guards.

    Isaiah (Rider) Shaquille (Oneal) Taylor I presume.

    Jordan Clarkson can play the 3rd PG. I don’t see the point here. I’ve never seen him though, so… we will see.

      I am referring to his full name, Isaiah Shaquille Taylor… and spelling it like UNLV Ryder not Detroit Thomas.

      What happened to interest in Trevor Booker, Treveon Graham, Luke Babbit?

        I think when a future HOFer like James leaves the fold, you pretty much look at anything and everything. I’m betting on an upcoming trade and much sooner than a trade deadline deal.

    This guy had a lot of bright spots in his run with ATL. Could be a nice pickup.
