Born: July 13, 1997 in Detroit, MI

 

Outlook:

 

Taylor Jones is one of the most complete players in Women?s basketball in today?s era. I like to call Jones ?Jason Kidd? on the court. Jones has a great feel work for the game, especially on the offensive side. She has a great mid range and is a catch and shoot 3 point shooter. Taylor also makes great decisions off the pick & roll situations. Taylor is an up tempo type of player that is always looking to make the extra pass, trying to get her teammates going first before herself. Jones can get to the basket at will and can finish at the rim with contact. On the defensive side, she always has high energy. Jones is very long and lengthy which she uses to her advantage to make her opponents turn the ball over.
