Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood's goal for the 2017-18 season is to come home with the Most Improved Player award. With the departure of Gordon Hayward, there's a massive hole to fill in Utah's offense, but it sounds like Hood is ready to try and fill some of that scoring void. "I've got to score. I've got to be one of the guys to put the ball in the basket," said Hood. Consistency and staying healthy have been issues for Hood in the past, but he's looking at ample opportunity in Utah this season, and it sounds like the Jazz coaching staff wants him aggressive on offense. He has a decent amount of upside, so rolling the dice on Hood towards the later rounds makes sense.

Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

Alec Burks (knee) has been working out at the Jazz practice facility. He's been there a lot and it would appear Burks is healthy. Numerous injuries have kept Burks in check for the past few seasons, but he's putting in extra work to get the explosiveness back in his game. He could be competing with Donovan Mitchell for a rotation spot.

Nazareth Mitrou-Long    G  Jazz

 

 

The Jazz added Nazareth Mitrou-Long to their training camp roster. The Jazz now have 19 out of their 20 training camp spots filled. Mitrou-Long averaged 15.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists during his senior season at Iowa State and put up 9.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists during the NBA Summer League. The 6'4" SG is a longshot to make the regular-season roster in Utah, so he's a candidate to play for the Salt Lake City Stars in the G-League.

Nate Wolters    G  Jazz

 

 

The Jazz will sign G Nate Wolters to a two-way contract, according to Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune. Wolters, a second-round pick in the 2013 draft, played in a total of 79 games for the Bucks over two seasons and then briefly for the Pelicans. He spent last season in Serbia. He can be ignored in all fantasy formats, as he'll likely spend most of next season in the G-League.

Alec Burks    G  Jazz

 

 

According to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, Alec Burks will be healthy at training camp for the first time in three years. The Jazz will need to rely on guys like Burks, Rodney Hood, Joe Ingles and Donovan Mitchell to pick up the slack with Gordon Hayward no longer around. Burks has played an average of 33 games over the past three seasons, but he could be a big part of the second unit if his health cooperates. He's only on the radar in very deep leagues and doesn't have great upside in standard leagues.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio scored 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting during Sunday's 73-56 win over Turkey, adding two rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 21 minutes. Pau Gasol finished with 11 points, seven boards, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one triple in the easy win and his brother Marc added 10 points, five boards, two assists, one block and one turnover in 29 minutes. The undefeated Spanish team tallied their 12th straight win in this one and they'll look to keep that trend going into Tuesday's matchup against Germany.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Rodney Hood stayed in Utah this offseason for the first time to work with the Jazz coaches. General manager Dennis Lindsey told Hood he needs significant all-around improvement, including a better free throw rate and more efficiency. Lindsey also said Hood has the potential to score 18 points per game, so it sounds like Hood received the message loud and clear. A scary knee injury in January curtailed Hood's progress after a breakout 2015-16, so maybe he could bounce back. He's worth a look at around 80-100 in standard leagues.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio went 2-of-7 from the field and 7-of-8 from the stripe during Tuesday's win over Croatia, on his way to 13 points, four assists, three boards, two triples and four steals in 27 minutes. Rubio is coming off a career-year in which he produced top-50 value behind averages of 11.1 points, 9.1 dimes, 4.1 boards, 1.7 steals and just 2.6 turnovers per game on 40.2 percent shooting, and more importantly, he was again able to stay relatively healthy. Injuries were a major issue through three of Rubio's first four years in the league, but he's managed to get through at least 75 games in each of the past two seasons. He'll again be an elite source of steals and dimes this upcoming season in Utah and will make for a solid early mid-round selection on draft day.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

The Jazz have opened contract extension negotiations with Rodney Hood, according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune. He's entering his fourth year and is eligible for his rookie scale extension with an Oct. 16 deadline. After a breakout in 2015-16, Hood's knee injury caused him to take a step back last season. With Gordon Hayward gone, general manager Dennis Lindsey has said Hood has the potential to be an 18 points-per-game scorer. For what it's worth, Hood saw an 8.1 usage rate and 9.0 true shooting percentage bump without Hayward compared to when he was with him last season, so he has ample opportunity. He'll be sliding in drafts and could wind up being a
