Former UCF men’s basketball star B.J. Taylor signed a 10-day Exhibit 10 contract with the Los Angeles Clippers, the team announced Wednesday. 

The former UCF guard played four years with the Knights — where he appeared in 104 games, averaging 15.9 points per game his redshirt senior year, and ranks seventh in program history with 1,618 career points — before going undrafted in the 2019 NBA draft but landing a spot in the NBA Summer League with the Orlando Magic. 


“Beyond excited to announce I’ve signed with the @laclippers for the upcoming season! Extremely blessed and grateful for this opportunity,” Taylor wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “Dreams do come true. Still hungry though. This is just the beginning. @laclippers @aacclippers”

Taylor tagged the Clippers’ NBA G League affiliate, the Agua Caliente Clippers, in his post.

The Agua Caliente Clippers of Ontario — located just over 40 miles east of Los Angeles in Ontario, California — is where the 10-day deal is likely to send the former UCF player, according to a UCF Athletics news release.
