Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Rudy Gobert said that he's been focused on his "post game and mid-range shot" this offseason. "Those are my two main focuses," Gobert said, in addition to "getting stronger, improving [his] lower-body strength and working on [his] quickness." He hopes to "show even more" offensively now that Gordon Hayward and George Hill left in free agency, and it shouldn't be hard for Gobert to increase his 16.7 percent usage rate from the 2016-17 season.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio said he's "really excited" to play for an organization that believes in him. "It’s a great basketball organization with a good tradition," Rubio said. "It was a little weird. I was six years in Minnesota. My name was in the papers with rumors and all that stuff for the last couple years, but never traded." He lands in a terrific spot on a defense-first team that figures to run a slow pace again. Rubio busted out for the 24th-ranked value in fantasy hoops after the break, so he shouldn't be falling very far in fantasy drafts.

Joe Ingles    G/F  Jazz

 

 

The Jazz have officially re-signed Joe Ingles. With the departure of Gordon Hayward, the starting small forward spot in Utah is up for grabs, so it'll be interesting if he can beat out Joe Johnson and Thabo Sefolosha for that spot over the course of training camp. Through 26 games as a starter last season, Ingles put forth averages of 9.3 points, 4.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 2.0 triples and 1.6 steals per game on 46.6 percent shooting, so he could be worth a late-round pick on draft day if he does indeed secure the starting small forward position.

Nigel Williams-Goss    G  Jazz

 

 

The Jazz may sign Nigel Williams-Goss to a two-way contract, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News. Utah selected Williams-Goss with the 55th pick in the 2017 draft. He wasn't overly impressive in the five games he played in Las Vegas this month. He averaged 4.4 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.2 rebounds, while shooting just 23.3 percent from the floor. The Jazz already has 15 players under contract, so the best Williams-Goss can hope for is a two-way pact. If not, he may have to spend next season overseas.

Royce O'Neale    F  Jazz

 

 

The Jazz have signed Royce O'Neale according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. The contract is for three years, but only the first one is guaranteed. This isn't a two-way contract, so the Jazz will likely have to waive a player to make room for O'Neale. An undrafted 6'6" forward out of Baylor, O'Neale averaged 4.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in the Vegas Summer League. Don't expect him to be in the rotation.

Eric Griffin    F  Jazz

 

 

Eric Griffin will reportedly sign a two-way deal with the Jazz. Once this is official, Griffin will be able to spend up to 45 days in the NBA next season and the rest of the time in the G-League. Griffin, known for his ridiculous athleticism and monster dunks, averaged 10.8 points and 7.8 rebounds in 25.5 minutes in four Vegas Summer League games.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey believes that Rodney Hood "has the potential to be in that 18 points per game range." "We have to let Rodney become the offensive wing we know he can be," Lindsey said. "We didn't want to bring in anyone who could get in the way of Donovan [Mitchell], Dante [Exum] and Rodney. We want them to develop." Hood's always had the talent, but injuries and inconsistent play have really held him back. Hood had a 28.1 usage rate with Gordon Hayward off the floor last season (20.1 with Hayward on the floor) and could potentially be Utah's No. 1 option on offense in his age-24 season, so all signs point to a career year.

Rudy Gobert    C  Jazz

 

 

Jazz GM Dennis Linsey said he's going to build his team around Rudy Gobert following Gordon Hayward's departure. "We feel like we can build defensively around Rudy Gobert," Lindsey said. "We look at him, and he's a top 10 player and unique defender. So we wanted to build a team around his talents." Lindsey added that he wants to showcase Gobert's ability, so the 25-year-old big man seems poised for a career year as the clear franchise player. If he can keep improving from the free throw line, there's no reason why he can't be a top-10 fantasy player -- he shot 65.3 percent from the stripe last season.

Tony Bradley    C  Jazz

 

 

Tony Bradley scored 19 points with eight rebounds, one assist and two blocks against the Bucks on Friday. The No. 28 pick of the 2017 draft had himself a strong showing, averaging 8.5 points, 6.3 boards and 1.0 blocks in his previous four games. He's obviously not going to get minutes right away and he may even get competition for a roster spot from Eric Griffin, who shined at times with a slew of highlight-reel dunks.
