Like someone pointed out earlier, the NBA is like 20% white (and that might be overstating it), so yes, it's pretty remarkable.

Cody Zeller is on a camp deal. Micah Whatsisname is on a two-way. Neither of these are likely to be on the 15-man roster. Bolmaro is Argentinian, which isn't white or European.

Fontecchio was considered the best player playing in Europe this past season. He wants to get PT in the NBA and the Jazz can provide that.

I don't think having this many white dudes is all that intentional, tbh. Maybe Ainge has a thing for Kelly Olynyk for whatever reason, but he saves the Jazz money and has a team option next year.

I didn't look at all the posts here, but going through ESPNs top 20 players this year only 2 in their top 20 are white; Luka and Joker. We are tanking, so signing/trading for white guys basically means we are tanking. If our existing white guys are pretty good, we are going to trade them. Even Sarah Todd said "Bogdanovic was too good to keep on the roster. He’s not a player that would willingly agree to load-managing his way through the season just so the Jazz could lose some games"

There are other ways to suck that don’t include sending your most valuable asset that you have to deal for absolutely nothing in return.
