FC Bayern Munich will keep swingman Bryce Taylor around for several more seasons. The two sides signed a contract extension that adds the 2015-16 season to his existing contract and includes an option for the 2016-17 season, as well. Taylor (1.93 meters, 26 years old) made his Turkish Airlines Euroleague debut with Munich last season, averaging 8.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 22 appearances. He was second in the competition with 51% three-point accuracy and seemed to only get better as the season progressed; Taylor averaged 10.2 points on 53.3% three-point shooting and 95.7% free-throw shooting in the Top 16. He was worth 11.4 points on 43.7% three-point shooting and 3.3 rebounds in helping Bayern win the German League championship. Taylor has spent most of his professional career in Germany. After making his pro debut for Premiata Montegranaro in Italy in 2009-10, he signed for Telekom Bonn, then spent two seasons with Alba Berlin and another with Artland Dragons Quakenbruck before arriving in Munich.
