Date: Team: Pos:

Naz Mitrou-Long has agreed to a two-way NBA contract with the Jazz.

He was with the Jazz briefly last season on a 10-day deal, and he logged one minutes with the big club. With the Jazz getting their PG depth back in Dante Exum and Raul Neto, there's only a tiny chance Mitrou-Long gets minutes.

Georges Niang has agreed to a multiyear deal with the Utah Jazz, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

He exploded in summer league for the Jazz, so the team opts to give him a deal. It's possible Niang could get himself into the Jonas Jerebko role, but it's worth a mention we've seen go off in summer league before. That means we still don't know if his game can translate to the big club yet.
Jul 13 - 7:59 PM

Tony Bradley (wrist) will not play Thursday.

The team is calling it a contusion, so hopefully there isn't any structural damage.
Jul 12 - 3:30 PM

Tony Bradley (left wrist contusion) and Grayson Allen (rest) are out for Thursday's summer league game.

Allen had a minor groin issue during his pre-draft work, and the Jazz will hold him out for his second game this month. He's not hurt or anything, so the Jazz may have him back out there for the next game. He's played very well in Utah and Vegas, so maybe Allen can sneak in as the ninth or 10th man in the rotation.
Jul 12 - 3:27 PM

Grayson Allen put up 17 points, seven rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one turnover in Tuesday's Summer League loss to the Heat.

Allen spent four years at Duke and has looked more polished than his competition at Summer League, but the reality is that he's going to have a tough time finding meaningful minutes while Dante Exum, Royce O'Neale, Jae Crowder, Thabo Sefolosha and the rest of the starters are healthy.
Jul 10 - 6:34 PM

Tony Bradley exited Sunday's game in the third quarter with a left wrist injury, but he returned to finish with 16 points and one rebound in just 17 minutes.

Bradley was cruising offensively vs. Knicks rookie Mitchell Robinson, hitting 7-of-8 field goals and 2-of-2 free throws. He had his wrist taped up before returning and didn't do much after the injury, so we'll keep an eye on him over the next 48 hours.

Georges Niang scored a game-high 20 points vs. the Knicks on Sunday, hitting 8-of-13 shots with two 3-pointers, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes.

Niang has been terrific during Summer League and he was coming off a 16-point effort on Saturday. He's playing on a non-guaranteed deal and faces some headwinds -- the Jazz recently waived Jonas Jerebko, but they've guaranteed Ekpe Udoh's $3.4 million salary and already have Jae Crowder and Derrick Favors under contract. Even if he does get a guaranteed deal, it's hard to see Niang having fantasy relevance in Utah.

Ekpe Udoh - F/C - Jazz

The Jazz will guarantee Ekpe Udoh's $3.4 million salary for the 2018-19 season.

Utah had until Monday to make their decision, but this isn't a big surprise -- Udoh was overshadowed by Rudy Gobert for obvious reasons, but he was quietly effective in 12.9 minutes per game last year. He tied JaVale McGee and Salah Mejri for the league-lead in blocks per 48 minutes (4.4), which is worth remembering if Gobert ever gets hurt.
Jul 8 - 9:58 PM

Grayson Allen (rest) has been ruled out for Sunday's Summer League game against New York.

It's not uncommon for first-round picks to sit out back-to-back sets at Summer League. He'll be back out there on Tuesday against the Heat.
Jul 8 - 2:29 PM

Grayson Allen scored 16 points with six rebounds, five assists, three steals, no turnovers and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

The efficiency still isn't his strong suit as he made 6-of-17 from the field, but at least he didn't turn the ball over in this win. Allen continues to control the offense as the primary ball-handler and he's even been thrown in some high-leverage defensive spots. The Jazz have to be pleased with his play so far.
Jul 7 - 4:58 PM

Isaac Haas scored four points with three rebounds and two turnovers in 15 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He had a season-ending elbow injury at Purdue and it caused him to fall out of the 2018 draft. Haas is a large human at 7'2", 290 pounds, and he has some touch on his jumper. Haas may have to work on his footwork this offseason, but he should get a camp invite in September.
Jul 7 - 4:51 PM

Jonas Jerebko plans to sign with the Golden State Warriors upon clearing waivers on Monday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

The Jazz waived Jerebko on Saturday. He was due $4.2 million from Utah. Any team that claims him on waivers would need to guarantee that amount. Assuming he slips through, which is the expected outcome, the Warriors will scoop Jerebko up and likely sign him for the veteran's minimum. He will see only limited minutes off the Warriors bench, so Jerebko will have a very limited impact in standard fantasy formats.
Jul 7 - 1:37 PM

The Utah Jazz have waived F Jonas Jerebko.

Jerebko had a $4.2 million non-guaranteed contract for the 2018-19 season. He averaged 5.8 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15.3 minutes per game for the Jazz last season. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors are among the teams Jerebko will consider upon clearing waivers, as there is "strong mutual interest."
Jul 7 - 12:03 PM

Grayson Allen made 2-of-13 from the field for nine points with six rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block, three turnovers and four fouls in 27 minutes.

It was a full Grayson Allen special. The refs called him for a trip in this game, and he got into an altercation with Trae Young (video in link below). On the actual basketball side, the Jazz put him at point guard a lot in this game and put him on Trae Young at almost every opportunity. The Jazz liked him because of his experience and how the Duke system should translate to the Utah one, so maybe he can fight for a rotation spot before the new year.
Jul 5 - 11:07 PM

The Jazz sat Grayson Allen on Tuesday because he strained an adductor during his pre-draft workouts.

The team did classify the DNP as rest, so this isn't a major problem. According to the Jazz broadcast, the team will monitor his minutes for the rest of the month. Allen was chucking in his first game, making 4-of-16 from the field. He'll have to earn a rotation spot in the fall.
