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.

Boris Diaw    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Jazz waive F/C Boris Diaw. The French forward had a guarantee coming up and the team waived him before the Saturday deadline. Diaw will reportedly not go back to the Jazz, which makes sense after the Jazz added so much depth in the last two days. He'll likely sign head to a contender on a minimum deal.

Boris Diaw    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Utah is expected to waive Boris Diaw, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN. The Jazz has until July 15th to waive Diaw, or his $7.5 million contract becomes guaranteed. Utah will use the newly created cap space to help facilitate the signings of Ekpe Udoh, Jonas Jerebko and Thabo Sefolosha. It is possible Utah tries to find a trading partner that would be interested in Diaw's expiring contract.

Ekpe Udoh    F/C  Jazz

 

 

Ekpe Udoh agreed to a two-year, $6.5 million deal with the Jazz. The sixth pick of the 2010 NBA Draft is back in the league after a two-year hiatus. Udoh was picked ahead of Paul George and Gordon Hayward, but the 30-year-old forward hit his stride with Fenerbahce, averaging 14 points per game in EuroLeague last year. Udoh will likely compete for an end-of-the-rotation role with the Jazz next season.

Jonas Jerebko    F  Jazz

 

 

Jonas Jerebko has agreed to a two-year, $8.2 million deal with Utah, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Boris Diaw's $7.5 million salary is fully non-guaranteed, and Derrick Favors' knee has been a persistent issue, so this gives Utah much-needed frontcourt depth. It's a solid move in reality, but he's a fringe fantasy option until we see how he's used by coach Quin Snyder.
