Expect a suspension from the league to come down on this at some point.

Sep 29, 2014, 1:29 PM EDT
The Hornets made the right move so far, keeping Taylor away from team activities while the investigation goes forward.

NBPA says it was Taylor’s decision to step away, and that no disciplinary action should be taken prior to consideration of the facts.

“This is a matter that we take very seriously.” — The Charlotte Hornets on Jeff Taylor’s arrest.

Adam Silver will be thrust in the spotlight with this.

He’s going to fight for minutes at a crowded wing spot in Charlotte.

This would be a solid pickup for the bench, especially at the league minimum.

One of the most obvious trade candidates around the NBA is Evan Turner. Both a talented young player on an expiring contract and not so good and so cheap that his current team wants to keep him, Tuner would fit in a variety of potential deals. There’s only one hitch. The Philadelphia 76ers have yet…

The Charlotte Bobcats’ outlook is changing. When they signed Al Jefferson this summer, the theory was they would rather be pedestrianly bad rather than historically bad – even if that meant lower lottery odds. I argued Charlotte should go all-in to be totally bad for another season, and that pulling in itself in opposite directions…

It isn’t extremely common for a team’s big man presence to find the slashing forward with a perfect pass for an alley-oop slam, but Roy Hibbert and Paul George pulled it off against the Bobcats on Wednesday. Jeff Taylor got completely lost trying to keep pace with George on the perimeter, and couldn’t get by…

Last season: Remember when the Bobcats started the season out 7-5 and we all kind of did a double take? That really happened, there was a moment where we wondered if this team wasn’t as terrible as we all thought. Then reality hit. The Bobcats went 14-56 the rest of the season. Charlotte had the…

If you haven’t been watching EuroBasket you’ve missed a few things — Russia is terrible, Finland is pretty good, Italy is undefeated and along with France may be the teams to beat. Oh, and Jeff Taylor did this for fun. Taylor is about to enter his second NBA season with the Bobcats, and while he…

LAS VEGAS – The Warriors wrapped up Las Vegas Summer League on Monday with a 91-77 win over the Suns to take home the first ever championship trophy in the event’s history. Undrafted rookie Ian Clark was named the game’s Most Valuable Player, after putting on a red-hot shooting display that netted him a game-high…

It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…

Gerald Henderson, in his fourth year, is having his best season, and it’s good timing. This summer, he’ll be a free agent, likely a restricted one. Coming off his rookie-scale deal, Henderson has his first chance to secure a big medium contract. But he hinted he’s not thinking about only money. Henderson, via Rick Bonnell…
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist leaves on a stretcher after suffering a head injury against the Rockets (VIDEO)
Feb 2, 2013, 10:28 PM EDT
Anytime a player leaves on a stretcher as a precaution, the injury sustained has to be considered to be extremely serious. It’s just that it didn’t look that way initially in the case of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. MKG took a knee to the back of the head from teammate Jeff Taylor, as he went up to…

The Charlotte Bobcats were historically bad last season — the team with the worst winning percentage in the history of the NBA. They were 7-59. And their performance Monday night in a 114-69 loss to the Thunder may have been their worst game yet. Which seems out of place for a Bobcats team that is…

There was a time when Tracy McGrady was one of those players you stopped flipping channels to watch, he was that special, that entertaining. Injuries robbed us (and the Rockets) of that McGrady. He’s still a serviceable guard just trying to find a spot in the league. Any spot, apparently. There is this tweet from…
