Taylor’s former St. Anthony High School teammate, Mike Rosario, as well as former St. Anthony forward Chris Gaston both play for Leones de Ponce in Puerto Rico.

It’s unclear what the addition of Taylor means for Aquille Carr,who was slated to work out for Atléticos.

The 6-foot-3 Taylor last played for the Maine Red Claws of the NBA D-League, averaging 9.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in six games.

Taylor was the 41st overall selection in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers, who then traded his rights to the Nets. In 61 career games with Brooklyn (3 starts) Taylor averaged 2.9 points in 8.0 minutes per game.

Taylor was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans on Jan. 21 in exchange for cash considerations and the rights to Edin Bavèiæ. Taylor was waived by the Pelicans on Jan. 23.
