Defending champion Raptors waive point guard Taylor

Point guard Isaiah Taylor was waived by the Cavaliers before the start of last season.

The defending champion Toronto Raptors have waived point guard Isaiah Taylor, according to JD Shaw of HoopsRumors.

The Raptors signed Taylor to a partially guaranteed contract Sept. 18 so he will at least collect a little money. The Raptors could sign him to a two-way deal, since they still have both slots available.

Taylor, 25, is 6-foot-3 and did not play in the NBA last season. He did appear in 67 games with the Atlanta Hawks in 2017-18, averaging 6.6 points and 3.1 assists.

He played three games with the Houston Rockets as a rookie and was waived by the Cleveland Cavaliers before the start of last season.
