Dante Exum    G  Jazz

 

 

Dante Exum dominated Wednesday's 100-94 win vs. the Sixers' Summer League squad, double-doubling with 26 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 plenty 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.

Gordon Hayward    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Gordon Hayward may not make his free agent decision until Wednesday. "Gordon and his wife are still in the process of making a decision," said Hayward's agent Mark Bartelstein. "This is the toughest decision of Gordon's life." News hit on Tuesday afternoon that Hayward had decided to join the Celtics, but that reporting was quickly refuted by Adrian Wojnarowski and David Aldridge, and Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune has stated that neither Boston nor Utah has heard official word from Hayward. Jones also reports that Hayward has changed his mind four times in the past four days and that he was so irked when the initial report of him going to Boston was leaked, that it has caused him to "re-evaluate everything."

Gordon Hayward    G/F  Jazz

 

 

Updating a previous report, Gordon Hayward has not yet made an official decision as to where he will sign as a free agent, according to his agent, Mark Bartelstein. And we officially have our first free agency fiasco of 2017. Chris Haynes of ESPN reported that Hayward had decided to sign with the Celtics, but then David Aldridge of TNT refuted that report, as did Adrian Wojnarowski‏ (also of ESPN) and Woj included a quote from Hayward's agent: "Gordon hasn't made a decision yet. We are still working through it." Until we see that Players' Tribune piece, nothing is official. Stay tuned.

Gordon Hayward reportedly plans to sign with the Celtics. This is the second summer in a row that Danny Ainge will be snagging an All-Star during free agency, and Hayward will now be reunited with his former college coach. The contract is reportedly a four-year deal for the max, and Hayward figures to be a primary creator in the Boston attack, so he shouldn't have much trouble flirting with early-round value in his new location. On Utah's side, they now have a huge hole to fill, and if they aren't able to bring in another free agent, Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles would figure to benefit most.

ESPN's Chris Hayes is reporting that the Celtics feel "really, really good" about their chances of signing Gordon Hayward. "I will say this: I'm hearing Boston is feeling really, really good about their chances of getting him," Haynes said on SportsCenter. After meeting with the Jazz for 3.5 hours on Monday in San Diego, Hayward is expected to announce his decision on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Until then, the Heat, Celtics, and Jazz franchises (and their fans) will have to nervously await Hayward's announcement.

Dante Exum    G  Jazz

 

 

Dante Exum looked great in Monday's Summer League opener, scoring 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, one block, two treys and four turnovers. Exum is about to enter his fourth NBA season (third if you include his ACL injury that kept him out for a year), so the Utah coaching staff challenged him to be the best player on the floor tonight. Exum looked terrific and that would've been the case, but Donovan Mitchell stole the show in the second half. The Jazz brought in Ricky Rubio this summer, so Exum will have to make a living with his defense off the bench in 2017-18. For now, he's not a fantasy target in standard leagues.
