Default Re: 2018 off-season

As Jazz fans, we have come to expect the unexpected from Dennis Lindsey during the NBA draft. At the time though, the Tony Bradley deal was perhaps the most perplexing. Most mock drafts at the time had Bradley going in the early parts of the second round, so it may not have been necessary for them to move up in order to select him. I mean, they already had the 30th pick. Did they not think he was going to last two more picks?

They thought the Spurs would take him. Who knows if that's true. Lindsey said they got the two guys they wanted. Rather he's just talking who knows

He shot 59 percent from inside the three point line, and shot 81.4 percent from the free throw line. His shooting from the free throw line is especially impressive, because itís a good indicator that he may be able to extend his shooting range.

If you watched him you'd already know he has impressive range already. He already shoots better than any of the Jazz bigs now that Jonas is gone. He hit a 3 in the Stars pre-season game and was hitting turn around shots just inside the arc with ease. Defense is what will make or break his career and he is even longer so the Jazz love him as we saw with the Favors and Udoh moves

There were still some definite concerns, though. For example, he led the team in fouls per game, with 3.5. This is something that should improve over time, but he is still learning the game, and in the NBA he could struggle to stay on the floor due to foul trouble.

He will be Rudys back-up. Fouls will be of little concern I'd think. If he shows enough he will be playing elsewhere

That lack of explosion was seen on the defensive side of the ball, as Bradley was only able to average 1.3 blocks per game, a surprisingly low number for a big with a 7í5″ wingspan.

He was usually a lot bigger than his opponents in the guard heavy G-league. Players may have avoided him like they do with Gobert?

Heading into this next season, I think you will see Bradley more frequently with this Utah Jazz team, but it still may not result in much more playing time. If the Jazz were truly ready to give him rotation minutes, there would have been little need to bring back Ekpe Udoh. Barring an injury to Gobert or Favors, he should expect to split his time with the Jazz and the Stars.

If he's dominating with the Stars they will have to look to make some kind of move. They are certainly in position to make moves with all of the expiring contracts
