They’re BAAACK! Nets Recall Taylor, Shengelia

Once again, the Brooklyn Nets announced today that they have recalled rookies Tyshawn Taylor and Toko Shengelia from the Springfield Armor, the Nets D-League affiliate. This will the the fifth and fourth times that the Nets have recalled both players, respectively. Under the new collective bargaining agreement, NBA teams are allowed to send and recall players in their first two years to the D-League as many times as they wish.

In 10 games with the Armor this season, the seldom-used forward Shengelia has posted some fantastic numbers; 24.3 PPG, 8.2 REB, 4.0 AST, and 2.3 STLS. His career high came on January 24th vs. the Maine Red Claws when he dropped 39 points to go along with 18 boards.

As for Taylor, his numbers are not too shabby either; 24.6 PPG, 7.5 AST, and 4.1 REB. He has played eight games in the Developmental League this season and his career high came in his D-League debut on December 21st against the Erie Bayhwaks. Taylor scored 32 points in that game.

Both players will re-join the team Thursday in time for Friday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets.
