News: Bluiett has agreed to an Exhibit 10 contract with the Jazz, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports.
Impact: Bluiett has yet to play in an NBA game, but he made 24 G League appearances last season, averaging 12.2 points on 10.4 shots, 4.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 24.9 minutes. He also made four 2019 summer league appearances with the Pelicans, averaging 13.0 points on 9.5 shots, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 23.0 minutes. While his chances of making Utah's final roster seem slim, he could end up with the organization's G League affiliate and continue developing.
News: Howard (groin) has signed a contract with the Jazz, Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News reports.
Impact: Howard was listed on Utah's summer league roster, though a groin injury prevented him from showcasing his talents. Still, the Jazz have enough confidence to sign him to a contract. He played in the French Jeep Elite league last season with CSP Limoges, averaging 9.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals in 24.6 minutes. Howard will likely spend much, if not all, of next season with the G League.
News: Wright-Foreman signed a two-way contract with the Jazz on Tuesday, Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News reports.
Impact: Wright-Foreman was selected by the Jazz with the 53rd overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft. The Hofstra product appeared in four summer league contests with Utah, averaging 11.8 points, 3.3 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 26.4 minutes. As is the nature of two-way contracts, Wright-Foreman will spend the majority of his rookie campaign in the G League.
News: Brantley has signed a two-way contract with the Jazz, Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News reports.
Impact: The 50th overall pick in the 2019 draft, Brantley appeared in four summer league games with Utah. He averaged 8.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 21.6 minutes. In signing a two-way deal, Brantley will spend the vast majority of his rookie season in the G League.
News: Oni signed a contract with the Jazz on Monday, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Impact: The details of the contract aren't clear, though it's not a two-way contract so there's a good chance Oni will safely be on the roster when the regular season rolls around. Still, the second-rounder is likely to spend the bulk of his time with the Jazz's G League affiliate.
News: Cousins won't play in Saturday's summer league game against the Hornets due to a sore left big toe, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Impact: With the Jazz in the summer league playoffs, a loss would result in elimination. It's thus possible that Cousins' time in Las Vegas might be over.
News: Oni, due to an upper back sprain, is probable for Saturday's summer league game against the Hornets.
Impact: The Jazz are in the summer league playoffs, so a loss could mean Saturday is the last time we see Oni until the preseason.
News: Howard is out for Saturday's summer league contest against the Hornets due to right groin soreness.
Impact: With the Jazz in the summer league playoffs, Howard may not get another opportunity to showcase his skills with Utah, as the format is single elimination.
News: Fletcher (hip) won't play Saturday against the Hornets.
Impact: The Jazz are in the summer league playoffs, so it's possible Fletcher's time with the team has come to a close if Utah loses.
News: Bradley, due to right great toe soreness, will not play during Saturday's summer league game against the Hornets.
Impact: Bradley likely suffered the injury during Utah's previous game. With the Jazz now in the summer league playoffs, a loss could mean we don't see Bradley again until possibly the preseason.
News: Brantley (hamstring) is out Saturday against the Hornets.
Impact: The Jazz are in the summer league playoffs, so a loss would mean we might not see Brantley again until possibly the preseason.
News: Williams-Goss signed a contract with the Jazz on Saturday, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Williams-Goss is a former second-round pick by the Jazz who never ultimately played for the team. He has spent the last two seasons in Europe where he has established himself as a player. The former Washington and Gonzaga product averaged 11.3 points, 4.6 assists, and 0.8 steals across 25.0 minutes per game last year for Olympiakos in the Greek Basketball League. He also provided 1.2 triples on 40 percent shooting from beyond the arc.
News: Oni supplied eight points (3-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 25 minutes during the Jazz's 87-78 loss to the Rockets in a Las Vegas Summer League game Thursday.
Impact: The 2019 second-round pick wasn't very efficient with his shot, but he remained aggressive and managed to get to a serviceable final line with the help of a pair of three-pointers. Despite his struggles Thursday, Oni has been more accurate the more he's played, as he still shooting 44.0 percent over four Las Vegas games after generating a 33.0 percent success rate across two games in the Salt Lake City league to open summer.
News: Reed provided 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-6 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 16 minutes during the Jazz's 87-78 loss to the Rockets in a Las Vegas Summer League game Thursday.
Impact: Reed combined with starter Tony Bradley to form a dominant 1-2 punch at center for the Jazz on the night. The fourth-year pro has had his moments at the NBA level over his three prior professional seasons, although he spent all his time in the G League last season before suffering an injury. Reed has enjoyed a solid summer, averaging 10.3 points and 6.0 rebounds over 18.0 minutes across three games in Las Vegas, which were preceded by tallies of 13.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.5 blocks over two contests in the Salt Lake City league.
News: Ferrari tallied three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five assists, three steals and two rebounds across 15 minutes in Thursday's 87-78 loss to the Rockets in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: The undrafted rookie from San Francisco hasn't seen a lot of action in Vegas, but he provided a nice spark in a reserve role during Thursday's contest. Gaining a berth in the Summer League is probably a good sign that the Jazz want to develop his skills with the G-League this year.
News: Bradley amassed 23 points (9-15 FG, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 24 minutes in Thursday's 87-78 loss to the Rockets in the LAs Vegas Summer League.
Impact: Tha Jazz have theirAll-Star center with Rudy Gobert, but you couldn't ask for a better campaign for Bradley, who has toiled in the G-League since being drafted in the first round in the 2017 NBA Draft. Over the past two years he's played 12 games with Utah in a reserve capacity. With only Gobert and Ed Davis on the roster at center, Bradley is steadily increasing his chances to make the team with his dominant interior play.
News: Wright-Foreman is not with the team Thursday while he attends to a personal matter, Tony Jones of The Athletic reports.
Impact: The specifics regarding Wright-Foreman's absence were not released, but it sounds like the rookie guard could be away for an extended time. As a result, t's unclear whether or not Wright-Foreman will be back with the Jazz before the conclusion of summer league.
News: McGrew registered 17 points (5-8 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block across 20 minutes during the Jazz's 97-93 win over the Trail Blazers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Tuesday.
Impact: The young forward put on quite a display from distance, leading to his best all-around performance over his first three games in Las Vegas. Undrafted in 2018, McGrew spent part of last season with the Salt Lake City Stars and averaged 10.9 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists over 21 games while shooting an impressive 40.6 percent from three-point range.
News: Lyles, who left the Jazz's final Salt Lake City Summer League game last Wednesday due to a foot sprain, has played in two of Utah's three games in Las Vegas and is averaging 4.5 points, 2.5 assists, 1.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals across 13.5 minutes.
Impact: The second-year guard overcame his injury relatively quickly and has been playing modest minutes off the bench in the desert thus far. Lyles logged 46 games in the G League last season for the Salt Lake City Stars after going undrafted, and he'll look to continue building his resume during his remaining time in the desert.
News: Bradley collected 17 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and two steals across 28 minutes during the Jazz's 97-93 win over the Trail Blazers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Tuesday.
Impact: The young forward put together yet another strong showing, as he continues to take advantage of his opportunities to showcase his wares this summer. Bradley averaged 20.0 points, 15.5 rebounds and 2.5 blocks in two games during the Salt Lake City Summer League, and he's followed that up with a similarly impressive 18.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals over two games thus far in Las Vegas.
News: Oni totaled four points (1-6 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists and one block across 28 minutes during the Jazz's 97-93 win over the Trail Blazers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Tuesday.
Impact: The 2019 second-round pick drew the start and saw plenty of minutes, but an inefficient shot led to a poor line. Oni was much sharper over his first two games in Las Vegas, averaging 12.5 points on 66.7 percent shooting.
News: Wright-Foreman won't play in Tuesday's summer league game against the Trail Blazers due to right knee soreness and right hamstring tightness.
Impact: Wright-Foreman is dealing with some soreness, so the Jazz won't push him to play in a meaningless exhibition game. His next chance to play will come Thursday against Houston.
News: Fletcher won't take the court for Tuesday's summer league matchup against Portland due to left hip soreness.
Impact: This doesn't appear to be a serious injury for Fletcher, though the Jazz will exercise caution in a meaningless exhibition.
News: Brantley (hamstring) won't play in Monday's summer league game against the Trail Blazers.
Impact: Brantley was removed from Sunday's summer league matchup due to right hamstring tightness, and he'll be held out of Tuesday's contest, likely as a precaution. His next chance to take the court will come Thursday against the Rockets.
News: Oni posted 11 points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and a block across 22 minutes in Sunday's 93-81 loss to the Heat.
Impact: After getting drafted by the Warriors in the second round, Oni was dealt to Utah in June. The 6-6 Yale product is a better fit for the Jazz, who could use another pure shooter on the roster. Oni should see consistent time in Vegas this summer.
News: Reed recorded 14 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-10 FT), 12 rebounds, two blocks, an assist and a steal across 25 minutes in Sunday's 93-81 loss to Miami.
Impact: The 6-11 journeyman is returning to action after sustaining a season-ending shoulder injury in the G-League. HIs prospects beyond a G-League berth are dim, but he could serve the team if Rudy Gobert misses any time - he aptly filled in for an injured Hassan Whiteside during his tenure with the Heat two years ago.
News: Brantley has been diagnosed with right hamstring tightness and won't return to Sunday's summer league game against the Heat.
Impact: Brantley scored one point in six minutes prior to departing. The Jazz won't risk further injury in an exhibition, so they've decided to shut him down for the night.
News: Bradley supplied 19 points (9-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 26 minutes during Saturday's 78-66 win over the Thunder.
Impact: Bradley had been dominant thus far in summer league, and that carried over to the opener of the Las Vegas event. The addition of Ed Davis means Bradley still has his work cut out for him in terms of earning minutes, this despite dealing Derrick Favors away. Nevertheless, Bradley could factor into the rotation this year after being an afterthought in previous seasons.
News: Brantley contributed seven points (3-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes during Saturday's 78-66 win over the Thunder.
Impact: Brantley put together a fairly well-rounded line but struggled badly from the field. His strength and versatility at the power forward position could come in handy for a team that agreed to trade Derrick Favors and Jae Crowder, who played most of the minutes at that spot last season. However, Brantley is a long shot at best to crack the rotation for a contender as a rookie.
News: Oni offered 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes during Saturday's 78-66 win over the Thunder.
Impact: Oni put together a strong stat line, finishing with twice as many points as field goal attempts while draining four treys. Oni fills a position of need for the Jazz as a decent defender and three-point shooter along the wing, and he'll look to continue making a strong impression here in the summer league.
News: Lyles won't return to Wednesday's summer league tilt with the Spurs due to a left foot sprain, Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Impact: A timeline for return will likely come out after Lyles can be assessed by the medical staff. It's reasonable to consider Lyles questionable for the Las Vegas summer league session which begins Friday.
News: Oni is unlikely to play in Tuesday's summer league game against the Cavaliers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Impact: Oni is in sweats and not warming up. He's presumably just getting the night off.
News: Brantley will likely sit out Tuesday's summer league game against the Cavaliers, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.
Impact: A reason hasn't been established for Brantley's absence, so it's likely just rest considering the Jazz played Monday.
News: Mudiay has agreed to a one-year contract with the Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: Mudiay saw his role increase last season with the Knicks, though the team ultimately won just 17 games, so it doesn't appear many front offices were convinced Mudiay turned a corner. He made significant strides in shooting efficiency, however, and he remains a solid passer. In joining Utah, he'll see his workload decline dramatically, and his best outcome is the first point guard off the bench behind Mike Conley.
News: Green has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: Green started 44 games for the Wizards last season -- his most since 2014-15 -- and he averaged at least 10 points and three rebounds for the second straight year. In joining the Jazz, he figures to slot into a backup role at both forward spots, which could afford him minutes in the mid-20s.
News: Davis and the Jazz agreed to a two-year, $10 million contract Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: Davis contributed off the bench this season for the Nets, averaging 5.8 points and 8.6 rebounds over 81 contests. He's expected to serve in a reserve role with the Jazz behind Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors.
News: Bogdanovic and the Jazz have come to terms on a four-year, $73 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: Bogdanovic is coming off a career year in which he averaged 18.0 points 4.1 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 2.0 triples across 31.8 minutes per game. His signing could signal the departure of veteran power forward Derick Favors. In that case, the Jazz will could opt to go small by starting Bogdanovic as a stretch-four alongside Mike Conley, Donovan Mitchell, Joe Ingles, and Rudy Gobert.
News: Wright-Foreman will participate with the Jazz in Salt Lake City Summer League.
Impact: Wright-Foreman, who played four years at Hofstra, finished his senior year with an average of 27.1 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.9 assists across 37.8 minutes. He'll look to demonstrate his talents at summer league and gain familiarity with Utah's system.
News: Brantley will take part in the Salt Lake City Summer League.
Impact: Brantley was selected 50th overall by the Jazz in the 2019 NBA Draft. Out of the College of Charleston, Brantley made the All-CAA First Team last season.
News: Bradley will play for the Jazz during Salt Lake City Summer League.
Impact: Bradley has played 12 NBA games across his first two seasons, so he'll look to continue developing his skillet at summer league. Last year, he racked up 36 minutes, totaling 17 points, 15 rebounds, two blocks, two steals and one assist.
