Phoenix Suns Work Out Free Agent Guard Jermaine Taylor

The Suns may be interested in the 25-year old who played last season with the Kings and Rockets.

The Phoenix Suns have plenty of depth in the back court, but that did not stop the team from working out free agent shooting guard Jermaine Taylor on Thursday afternoon. The good guys at Hoops Rumors provided this update on Taylor, who recently signed with a D-League team.

Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld says (via Twitter) the Suns will work out Taylor today, while Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports tweets that the 25-year-old will work out for the Clippers tomorrow.

It is unclear why the Sun would work out Taylor, who only played in 36 games last season with the Kings and Rockets, but they surely had a reason for it. Here was a bit of news and a scouting report on the 25-year old from Ridiculous Upside:

The 25-year-old Taylor is more of a scoring athlete than the shooting guard he's listed as on the roster, but he certainly showed some flashes of ridiculous upside as he earned eight starts with the Kings last season. He originally signed in China this season, but was cut prior to training camp and hasn't played since.

A final decision on Taylor will likely be made in the coming days and we will keep an eye on it. Be sure to check back for continued coverage.
