Olimpia Milano announced Maurice Taylor
Olimpia Milano wasn't satisfied just with signing Hollis Price and so the team of Giorgio Armani will be featuring a seasoned NBA veteran in their roster. Olimpia announced the signing of Maurice Taylor(2.06-PF) via their official website, who will be testing his strength in the Top-16 of the Euroleague.
In 1997, he was drafted 14th overall by the Los Angeles Clippers. When he became a free agent in 2000, Taylor announced his intention of hoping to sign with the Orlando Magic to join newly acquired players Grant Hill and Tracy McGrady. No contract offer from Orlando ever came. He then signed with the Houston Rockets instead where he stayed for 5 seasons. He was then traded to the New York Knicks in 2005, before joining the Sacramento Kings in 2006. He was released by Sacramento in January 2007 and has been out of action since. It is very interesting to see if Taylor is in good shape in order to contend in such a high level.
