Jordan Taylor opted to sign with Virtus Roma after averaging just 5.8 points and 2.8 assists during Summer League play.

"I'm looking forward to it," Taylor said. "It's a new experience. All I can do is keep working and keep trying to reach my goals and make some money in the meantime. I'm definitely not giving up on trying to get to the NBA.

"I don't know what the odds were as far as making (an NBA) team. I don't know if I would have been another body in training camp or whatever. I just figured I'd go play (in Europe) and hopefully try and come back.”

Taylor’s numbers fell across the board as a senior at Wisconsin, capped by a 2.6-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.

"A lot of people have talked about that they wanted to see the Jordan from junior year,” Taylor said. “So I'm just trying to go play and try to find that again and see what happens next year."
