Maurice Taylor Net Worth
Maurice Taylor Net Worth: Maurice Taylor is a retired American professional basketball player who has a net worth of $20 million. Maurice Taylor was born in Detroit, Michigan, in 1976, and stayed close to home for his college career, suiting up for the University of Michigan Wolverines from 1994 until 1997. The Los Angeles Clippers chose Taylor with the 14th overall pick during the first round of the 1997 NBA Draft. He played with the Clippers until 2000 when he joined the Houston Rockets. Taylor went on to play for the New York Knicks (2005-2006), the Sacramento Kings (2006-2007), Olimpia Milano in Italy (2009), Shanxi Zhongyu in China (2009-2010), Benetton Treviso in Italy (2010), and, finally, Enel Brindisi in Italy (2011). Taylor earned NBA All-Rookie Second Team honors in 1998. He played in Europe beginning in 2009 after not playing professionally in the NBA for nearly two years. Many years after finishing his career with the University of Michigan, Taylor was implicated in a scandal and was accused of accepting money from a Wolverines booster. Because of this, every game Taylor and several other members of the team played in was wiped from the books and Michigan was forced to forfeit those games, including the team's 1997 NIT Championship.
