Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell will be rested during Sunday's exhibition vs. the Clippers. Despite his precautionary inactivity tonight, the early returns are very promising for Utah's lottery pick, who averaged 3.3 steals per game in their home-town Summer League. Utah returns to action vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday, so hopefully we'll see him then.

Jeff Withey    C  Jazz

 

 

Jeff Withey met with the Clippers on Friday according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. They also met with Willie Reed, so it looks like their focus is on adding some insurance behind DeAndre Jordan. Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times said the Clippers "definitely" have interest in Withey, but he hasn't been linked to many teams which suggests his contract demands will be low. Withey is a serviceable backup, but he's unlikely to help fantasy owners if he lands in LA.

Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell made 8-of-26 from the field for 19 points against the Blazers on Saturday, adding two rebounds, two assists, four steals, three turnovers and three 3-pointers. He's a highlight machine and he has one of the most complete offensive arsenals among the rookie guards. Mitchell loves his spin move, he has a pro-ready stepback J, he finishes well, his release is as quick as anyone, and he's done a great job hitting teammates on cuts. The Jazz do seem to be giving him the ball more to create for teammates, so it's possible he blossoms into a combo guard. He's arguably been the most impressive player this month and has already put himself on the radar for fantasy next season.

Donovan Mitchell    G  Jazz

 

 

Donovan Mitchell put up a few highlights during a 68-65 win over the Celtics on Thursday, scoring eight points with three rebounds, one assist, four steals and no turnovers. If there's a positive for the Jazz this week, it's gotta be Mitchell. While he didn't fill it up on offense tonight, he played phenomenal defense against Jayson Tatum -- he also ripped him and stared him down -- and Mitchell also hit two clutch free throws late in this game. The No. 13 pick also put the No. 3 pick down before dropping a dime in the highlight of the day (video in link below). Even those with the highest of hopes have to be extremely impressed with Mitchell, especially with how many different things he brings to the table. He'll likely be in the rotation and is a possible late-round pick in fantasy.

Dante Exum    G  Jazz

 

 

Dante Exum scored 16 points with two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 25 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday. The Jazz talked him up for his extra effort this summer and he came through with a great run in Utah Summer League. After the game, Exum said he'll be headed back to Australia to enjoy some down time before he heads back to be with the team. He won't be playing in Las Vegas and there could be some trade rumors surrounding him.

The Jazz have signed Donovan Mitchell. It's been a rough couple days for the Jazz following Gordon Hayward's departure, but Mitchell is giving them plenty of reasons to have hope. Through the first two games of the Utah Summer League, the combo guard out of Louisville is averaging 19.0 points, 4.5 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 3.0 steals. If he can keep his momentum up, Mitchell could become an intriguing late-round flier.

Dante Exum    G  Jazz

 

 

Dante Exum dominated Wednesday's 100-94 win vs. the Sixers' Summer League squad, double-doubling with 13 points on 9-of-16 shooting, three 3-pointers, five rebounds and 10 assists in 29 minutes. Exum looked far more polished than the competition, which is exactly what Utah wanted to see from their 2014 lottery pick. "He's not the young guy anymore," Utah Jazz Summer League coach Alex Jensen said. "It's time. You've got to stand out." Exum passed the initial test but he still has a lot to prove before demanding fantasy owners' attention.

Rodney Hood    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey said that Rodney Hood could become a "primary scorer" for Utah this season. "It's time for us to pivot, it's time for us to move on," Lindsey said, while addressing the team's acquisition of Ricky Rubio. The departure of Gordon Hayward was the proverbial elephant in the room, but Hood's health is one of the biggest variables. For fantasy purposes, it would be ideal for him to start the 2017-18 season as one of Utah's only go-to scorers.

Ricky Rubio    G  Jazz

 

 

Ricky Rubio passed his physical and the trade sending him to Utah is official. Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey said his team's analysis ranked Rubio as the best defensive point guard in the league for 2015-16, and they had him top-six last season. With Rudy Gobert as an elite backstop defensively, it's easy to see why they valued Rubio, whom they acquired for a protected first-round pick in 2018 (via the Thunder). Rubio should be very busy in a Jazz offense that isn't overflowing with scorers -- they'll likely prioritize surrounding him with a few more shooters this summer.
