The San Antonio Spurs conducted a pre-draft workout with Austin Peay University guard Terry Taylor this Tuesday.
The six-five swingman averaged 21.6 points and 11.1 rebounds per game, led the nation in double-doubles and took home a second straight Ohio Valley Conference Player of the Year award during his senior season.
Taylor is the all-time leader in points, offensive rebounds, and minutes for the Governors. And he finished his decorated collegiate basketball career as the second-leading scorer in Ohio Valley Conference history.
Although the Bowling Green native hasn’t received a ton of buzz during the pre-draft process, his ability to clean the glass combined with plus athleticism and a white-hot motor should draw second-round interest.
While Taylor was a dominant offensive force in each of his four seasons at Austin Peay University, he delivered a sizable impact on the defensive end, registering 130 steals and 132 blocks in 127 appearances.
The 230-pound wing was one of 353 early entry candidates for the 2021 NBA Draft. Taylor opted to keep his name in the draft as the deadline to withdraw and maintain any remaining NCAA eligibility passed on July 7.
The 2021 NBA Draft will take place on July 29 at 7 PM CST at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. ESPN and ABC will televise the first round, and the second round will air exclusively on ESPN.
