"I think he's right about where I want him to be," Brown said. "When I see kids with that kind of potential you think of the Kevin Durant-thing. You can't develop him that fast but he's where I want him to be offensively, body-size and understanding. He's still got two more years of basketball at National Christian Academy."
For Brown, it's a long journey going from prospect to player and he feels Taylor is sailing in the proper direction. "When he comes out there this summer I don't think there's going to be many big men out there better than him. I think he's right where he needs to be in his development stage. I let him grab defensive rebounds and start the break. He can go coast to coast; he's not a really good 3-point shooter yet but he's working on it. He's right where he should be."
The plan is for Taylor to take part in the NBA Camp this summer and hit up the LeBron James Skills Academy. As far as recruiting-wise? Well, there's no rush to get married.
"We're taking it easy," Brown said. "He's really good."
Taylor is ranked the No. 29 prospect overall in the Class of 2009.
