I heard his name thrown around, but didn't even know who he's playing for...

Then watched some highlights, damn...

It's funny that teams always pass up these older players who stayed longer in college...

By longer, we mean more than 1 year right? Because he stayed 2

Glad to see his strong play in the summer league carry over.

Kurple's post does have me questioning his game a bit though. I've seen a few box sheets where he threw up and missed an abnormal amount of shots for a rookie. Admittedly, I haven't had the pleasure of watching too many Jazz games.

Looks like they've got a fierce scorer on their hands.

Was he a one and doner at college?

Amazing young player. Shame the Jazz have so much dead weight like Rubio.

I have not seen him play yet other than highlights. Looking forward to seeing him in action when we play Utah in a few weeks.

He's not better than Hayward was last year in the playoffs.

Yeah, whatsup with the Lillard lite comparison? Mitchell has a higher ceiling than Lillard.

He will have the ball in his hands more and more as they move forward so he'll at least be called the pg because people need a label but I'll just call him superstar.

Rubio is there to keep the opposing defense honest, a Rubio + Hood + asset for Rondo + Allen would certainly entice the league
