Maurice Taylor has signed a three-year deal to play for the Armani Jeans Milan team in Italy?s top pro basketball league.
?I?m really excited about this opportunity. I want to get on the basketball court again,? says Taylor, who played 10 years in the NBA for the L.A. Clippers, N.Y. Knicks, Sacramento Kings, and Rockets.
?I?ve been looking to play again. I?ve worked hard to get in shape, and I?m ready. I was talking with some NBA teams, but they were only offering a one-year deal at minimum salary. With Milan, I?ll finish this season, plus play two more seasons after that,? Taylor, 32, said.
