Raptors Add Isaiah Taylor to Fill Final Training Camp Roster Spot

The Toronto Raptors are doing the best they can to survive the post Jordan Loyd era.

Already issuing a contract to former first round pick Cameron Payne, the Raptors sign 25-year old guard Isaiah Taylor to a partially guaranteed deal on Wednesday. The former Texas Longhorn went undrafted back in 2016, but was able to sign a three-year non-guaranteed contract with the Houston Rockets.

After being waived by the Rockets following his rookie season, which included plenty of G League time and enduring some nagging injuries, Taylor signed with the Atlanta Hawks where he played in 67 games, averaging 6.6 points per contest while shooting 42-percent from the field and 25-percent from long range. He last spent time with the Cleveland Cavaliers who ultimately released the 6-foot-3 point guard.

Bringing him in for training camp, Taylor will be able to compete for minutes with Cameron Payne as both players will be vying to fill the Raptors third point guard role. There is no guarantee that Taylor will be able to crack the squad, but there is a chance that he could find his way with the 905 in the G League.

With the maximum 20 roster spots filled, the defending NBA champions look ready to go for the start of training camp.
