    I don't think JWF has it, tbh.

    See, I would much rather have 2 or three Oni's on 3 year team controlled contract that Muiday on a one year minimum. There is upside to these players, especially as they aren't too proud to play G-League. The Jazz have certainly had a nose for development here.

    Of course if you can get the Oni's AND the Muidays and aren't paying a Gordon Hayward 30 million, that is the best way to hedge your bets. Our worst contract is Exum at 10 million, and that isn't even a given to be horrible value.

    He's going to have to relearn his place on the court. Hell, we're bringing back NWG, there is always a chance he sticks.

    That's actually 6 chances (spots 12-15 are four players, not three).

    13-15 then... math is hard... I guess Tony could be considered a guy like that by others... not by me doe.

    NWG was pretty productive last year in the Greek league... I wonder if he can give us what Neto did but be healthier and taller. In his highlights he gets like no separation... so a game manager pg that can hit some shots? I think JWF is trying to be something more than that, but may not have it. I'd like to have him on a two-way if possible.

    That was always NWG's issue. Not quick enough to get separation or stay with people defensively.

    Yes. If he can make threes at 40% and be a caretaker PG that might be enough to find an NBA role.

    Lol, he was not a good passer, lacked court vision, and was a turnover machine, what were you watching. Also did not shoot well in Vegas only in Utah SL.

    So looks like Oni did make the 15 man roster?

    Yes. He has a guaranteed contract for one year.

    Can’t see them cutting him after this. Now I want to see what they do with Brantley.

    Good for my son Miye. He does appear to have solid role player potential.

    Good defender. Can hit threes. He the second best passer in terms of assists. He made the right reads in each of the plays. There's a video of Johnny Bryant praising him of this.

    Miye One looked to be the best of the three picks imho. He has the best NBA body. He brought more of a presence than the other two. Then again, I liked Brantley enough to give him a spot but I like that the Jazz are looking at a much bigger pool of players than the 2nd round draft picks we got this season. There are plenty of fish in the ocean and I am glad we aren't fishing in an aquarium alone.

    I predict Brantley and JWF get the two ways. I guess I was really wrong about George King and Willie Reed being on the final roster.

    A ton of his passes were intercepted thanks to a lack of court vision, he also shot 7-27 in both SL’s combined from 3. Give me a break. I saw little to nothing from him. He had one game in double figures. He wasn’t good.

    Disappointed Brantley won’t get a contract.
