Raptors Waive Isaiah Taylor

According to JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors, the Raptors have waived point guard Isaiah Taylor. As Blake Murphy of The Athletic notes, this all but means that Malcolm Miller has earned the team’s final roster spot, with Oshae Brissett‘s contract likely to be converted into a two-way deal.

As we relayed yesterday, Murphy opines that the Raptors look to be interested in re-signing Taylor to a two-way deal, where he may very well join Brissett. Both of Toronto’s two-way slots are currently open.

Taylor, 25, made his NBA debut with the Rockets during the 2016/17 season, then spent the 2017/18 campaign in Atlanta, appearing in 67 games for the Hawks. In 17.4 minutes per contest for Atlanta, he averaged 6.6 PPG and 3.1 APG.

Taylor had a $50K guarantee in his contract, so the Raptors will be on the hook for that on their 2019/20 books.

    The right move. Miller has shown much more upside, and Terrence Davis can handle the emergency 3rd PG duties.

    I feel like this is going to be a Damion Lee-like player. Last year, Damion was a smallish but also helpful backup on the Warriors. Isaiah Taylor could be the same thing after the Raptors sign him to a two-way deal.
