Son of the former NBA-player Jeff Taylor, Jeffery has always had his sight on following in his father's footsteps. Jeff was highly touted as an NBA-prospect already during his sophomore season with Vanderbilt when he demonstrated athletic skills far beyond average and very solid defence. Since then he has worked hard on his shooting and was selected number 31 by the Charlotte Bobcats in the 2012 NBA draft. With everyone in the NBA now raving about the importance of "3 and D-players", Jeffery looks set for a long and productive career. He averaged 20 points-per-game for Charlotte in the Summer League and looks to have developed his ability to attack the basket. Jeffery works incredibly hard and will provide Sweden with a serious two-way weapon during EuroBasket 2013.
