Second-round draft pick Tyrone Wallace is not on the training camp roster, but will likely begin his professional career in the Jazz system with the Salt Lake City Stars.
hasn't signed elsewhere so that's what I've figured.
Fellow second-round pick Marcus Paige, along with Eric Dawson will probably end up there as well. From where I sit, they are the most unlikely players to make the cut.
I could see Dawson. They don't like Withey and he should have trade value. I thought they might move Alec too but now that he's not playing in the pre-season that may be put on hold. Could still see Hood going.
He moved from Atlanta partially because he was the third point guard, and that’s exactly what he will be in Utah behind Exum and Hill.
We'll see. Hard for me to see one of their best players not playing at all.
he definitely struggled to contribute offensively beyond the occasional catch-and-shoot three.
That's Hill's game and I'd be happy to see that from Exum.
"I've hit the weights really hard; I've gained a couple pounds, worked on my athleticism, to be honest. My vertical (leap) has increased just a little bit, my body, my balance, my jump shot, my footwork, my touch -- I've worked on just about anything you can think of.
But the highlight was definitely at the end, when Favors hit two consecutive threes. The first, from the top of the arc, was a scramble situation after an out-of-bounds play with a quickly shrinking shot clock. The second, though, was a set play for Favors to take the outside look from the elbow, and he swished that one too. If that's a weapon for Favors, it gives the Jazz some really interesting spacing possibilities.
love to see him hit a perimeter shot period after last year's horrendous shooting display
Exum played his first game outside of the friendly confines of Zions Bank Basketball Center for the first time in 14 months, and looked okay. He too easily was steered baseline and towards the corners of the court, which often resulted in turnovers. He missed two jumpers from the elbow, as well as a corner shot. He did seem more aggressive in the open court, but the offense didn't flow very well out there when he ran it. He did try to deliver an alley-oop pass to Hayward, which was intercepted by Joe Johnson.
Doesn't sound like he's one of their top 10 guys to me. If he's not and he plays it's a joke.
Let’s start with the publication’s most recent Jazz reveal on Thursday, which was Hayward at No. 33. It comes as a curious valuation given how much the Jazz relied on Hayward and how well he performed under such a heavy burden.
and yet the Jazz still sucked. Tired of the hype. Let's see results!
The Hawks waived forward Richard Solomon on Saturday. The move trims the training camp roster to 19 players. However, the Hawks are likely to add a guard to the roster soon. They are thin at the guard position with Dennis Schroder nursing an ankle injury and Jarrett Jack being brought along slowly from a torn ACL. The Hawks had an excess of big men in camp knowing that Tiago Splitter was returning from hip surgery. – via Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Jeff Withey, who will probably be either the 14th or 15h man on the roster, saw a lot of playing time last year.
no he didn't
"To some degree, there's been too much of a fixation on minutes," Snyder said. "It's relevant, but developing the roster is going to take time. I don't think we're going to have a goal of going into Christmas knowing who our starting quarterback is going to be, if you know what I mean. There will be adjustments over the course of the season, there will be different matchups."
the big question is if the best guys actually play for a change. They have indicated that is the case but I keep hearing Exum's name though his game sounds like it has a long way to go
At the time Snyder was the coach of the San Antonio Spurs D-League affiliate, the Toros. Hill describes himself as “Quin’s project” that year. The two of them worked out together everyday. Certainly Snyder learned a thing or two about Hill’s character in that environment and must have liked what he saw.
