Sure, there have been missteps (Trey Lyles, Trey Burke), but overall, Lindsey's return has far exceeded the value of his picks during his tenure as the Jazz's top basketball executive.
Wouldn't call Lyles a misstep. The biggest problem has been throwing these guys into the line-up and not making them earn anything. Trey might have worked after his rookie year if he hadn't been handed the starting job as a rookie.
I'm very anxious to see Allen's summer league performance. If he struggles against the varied cast of guard opponents who are trying to make it to the NBA, it will be a very bad sign for a prospect of his age. On the other hand, he has a chance to show exactly what made those workouts stand out and that he can continue to be a difference maker at the next level.
I'd agreee that he needs to look good in summer league at his age
