Carter, who is averaging almost two steals a game has seemed to take his guy out of almost every game. So, a lot of the rumors before their matchup on the 3rd was that Allen was sitting out so that he did not have to face Carter. If that is the case, Allen can not avoid this matchup, and I am here for it.

Sounds like a good test for both

The other two way spot will be decided in camp I guess. 3 more to go for camp. Still think Burks, Thabo, and Udoh could be traded though?

While there may be many out there who feel the Jazz have made a mistake in not shaking things up, there are many positives to the Jazz simply bringing back the band and seeing how things play out next season.

Many positives but none of them include trying to win as much as possible

Quote:
Short of LeBron James, there was not really anyone the Jazz could have brought in to make them a legitimate threat to the Golden State Warriors, and based on the second half of last season, there is no reason to believe that the Jazz are not already the number three team in the Western Conference. That said, why not just run it all back, and see what you have here?

There was a big difference between 1/2 and 3 is why. They needed shooting. I guess Niang and Long are the shooters they needed!

Quote:
The reason we should all be optimistic about the Utah Jazz simply running this all back next season, is because when they clicked in, they were one of the most dominant teams in the entire NBA. I may be a homer, but there is an argument to be made that if the Jazz are in the Eastern Conference last season, they make it to the NBA Finals

Who cares?

Quote:
From January 23rd on, the Jazz had the second best record in the NBA at 29-6. The impressive record was due in large part to an above average offensive – 108.2 offensive rating – to go along with one of the most dominant defenses we’ve seen in years – 96.5 defensive rating. That combined offensive and defensive effort gave the Jazz a net rating of 12.

And in the playoffs Houston smoked them

Quote:
One can only wonder what type of record the Jazz could have pulled off had they been healthy throughout the entire season. Rudy Gobert and Dante Exum missed a combined 94 games, and while the 13 wins lost seems a bit high, it’s not outside of the realm of possibility.

But when were they last healthy? Why even bring it up

In case you didn’t notice, a familiar face was missing from the Utah Jazz Summer League roster. After the Jazz's Summer-League opener in Salt Lake City on July 2 versus San Antonio, two-way player Erik McCree has been out for personal reasons. The team hasn’t released any further details. He also didn’t make the trip to Las Vegas and didn’t respond to the Deseret News’ attempt to reach him. The Louisiana Tech product spent the bulk of his offseason leading up to the games in his hometown of Orlando, Florida, after splitting time with the Jazz and Salt Lake City Stars of the G-League last season.

Hope all is well. The guy might have an NBA future. Goss?

After being selected by the Jazz with the 21st overall pick of the 2018 NBA Draft, everyone was wondering which Grayson Allen we would see this summer. Would it be the controversial villain that he was often portrayed as at Duke or the playmaking guard that the Jazz brass anticipated him to be? Allen didn’t disappoint. Sure, he had a couple of minor altercations with Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks and Wade Baldwin of the Portland Trail Blazers but, in both situations, he didn’t seem to be the aggressor. Those situations still drew national headlines. Allen has wowed Jazz fans with his freak athleticism and ability to run the floor as the primary ball-handler, however his shot has been off. In the first two games in Las Vegas, Allen led the team in scoring with 16.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals but shot just 38 percent from the field. So far, he seems to be a good fit as a backup floor general.

Thought they just paid someone 33 million to be the back-up floor general? The kid said he is more comfortable off the ball. I'd expect that to be more his role initially with the Jazz. With the Stars they might want the ball in his hands more

Quote:
We know that Jazz second-year center Tony Bradley has used this offseason in Salt Lake City to get leaner, put on muscle and reduce body fat. What we don’t know is how much? “I don’t want to tell you,” Bradley said. Another thing we do know is that the 20-year-old has stretched from 6-foot-10 to 6-foot-11.5 with sneakers on. His wingspan also increased from 7-5 to 7-6. Before suffering a left wrist contusion in Las Vegas, the former North Carolina big man was averaging 16.0 points and 3.5 rebounds on 87 percent shooting in the first couple of games. Bradley also received Utah Jazz Summer League Standout honors and could become a valued backup center to Rudy Gobert this season if he keeps progressing.

Might get traded before he ever becomes the back-up. No matter how good he gets he's probably Rudy's back-up at best. They'll have to trade him before he becomes a free agent I'd guess

Quote:
By far, the star of the Utah Jazz Summer League show has been Georges Niang. So much so, that the former Iowa State star has played his way into signing a three-year, $5 million deal after displaying his versatility in both Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. Niang entered this offseason as a restricted free agent after earning All-NBA G-League First Team honors last season as a two-way player for the Santa Cruz Warriors and Salt Lake City Stars. Jazz Summer League head coach Alex Jenson praised him as “an NBA roster player for sure” as Niang is expected to compete for an opening day roster spot with the Jazz. He’s proving he has all the tools to earn minutes.

Not sure he has all the tools. Maybe enough though?

Quote:
Ahead of Saturday’s summer league game versus Memphis, Georges Niang tweeted “Tag team back again” as the caption to a photo with his best friend Naz Mitrou-Long. One day after signing his deal, Mitrou-Long also inked a two-way contract with the Jazz. The two buddies have amazing on-court chemistry after previously playing together in college at Iowa State. They also share the same Salt Lake City apartment and spend lots of time together. Returning No. 30 and No. 31 is a feel-good story for the organization, but both guys are definitely worthy of playing in the NBA.

Could we quit saying guys that have never proven they can play in the NBA can play in the NBA? It's a long ways from one of the top players in the G-league to an NBA player.
