Brooklyn Nets guard Tyshawn Taylor is willing to wait for an opportunity to receive an increased role with the team.

In a story published on on Sunday afternoon, the 22-year-old discussed how the team had re-assigned him to the Springfield Armor of the D-League on Friday morning before re-calling him on Saturday.

Registering a game-high 32 points on Friday night, Taylor was then active against the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday afternoon but did not receive any minutes in the game. In total, he has played 32 minutes this season and played only four minutes thus far in December.

Due to his lack of playing time, Taylor explained that he is willing to play any where the Nets want him to, via

"I'll play anywhere, right now especially. Not playing is crazy. I'll go to a park and play right now if they send me there. That's no problem, I'll go down there again and try to win, try to work on my game and get better."

Taylor was originally selected with the No. 41 overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Portland Trail Blazers and was then acquired by the Nets for cash considerations.

In the limited time he has received this season, Taylor has registered 13 points, three steals, two assists and one rebound.
