With the NBA Finals over, ESPN analyst Maria Taylor is already making her next move.
On Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the Bucks lifted the championship trophy, ESPN confirmed that Taylor was leaving the network – reportedly to join NBC.
Taylor was indirectly involved in controversy earlier this month when recordings surfaced of colleague Rachel Nichols insinuating that ESPN assigned Taylor to cover the NBA Finals as a ‘diversity hire’.
