July 8, 2019, 4:40 pmBojan BogdanovicSF, Utah Jazz
The Jazz officially announced the signing of Bojan Bogdanovic.
Bogdanovic inked a four-year, $73 million deal. He gives Utah an elite floor-spacer and a capable perimeter defender that can switch across wing positions. Bogdanovic's ability to knock down the three ball efficiently will give them a new dynamic after they occasionally suffered for spacing in recent years. He's likely going to get less usage with the Jazz than he did in Indiana last season, but top-100 numbers are still possible given his stat set. There's a late-round floor here.

The Jazz have not ruled out a reunion with Thabo Sefolosha, per Tony Jones of The Athletic.
The Jazz have had a wonderful offseason but could stand to add a defensive stopper to their bench. To this point it's looked like Sefolosha would be headed elsewhere but the Jazz have left the door open for a return. There would be no fantasy impact, but he would improve the outlook on a team that's already looking like an elite defense.

Willie Reed put up 14 points and 12 rebounds on 5-of-11 shooting in 24 minutes in a loss to the Heat on Sunday.
Reed double-doubled in each of the first two games for the Jazz. He added one steal and two blocks to the stat sheet. He could earn a roster spot if he continues to play well.
July 7, 2019, 9:12 pmJarrell BrantleyPF, Utah Jazz
Jarrell Brantley hurt his hamsting and was experiencing tightness, as a result, will not be returning to Sunday's game vs. the Heat.
He logged just six minutes in the first half before going to the locker room and being ruled out for the rest of the game. He grabbed two rebounds and dished out one assist.

Ekpe Udoh has agreed to a deal with the Beijing Ducks.
Udoh was Utah's backup center for the past two seasons, only really cracking the rotation whenever Rudy Gobert was hurt. The 32-year-old may have seen the last of the NBA, but it's always possible that he lands a similar role again if he posts big numbers overseas.

July 6, 2019, 6:39 pmMiye OniPG, Utah Jazz
Miye Oni put up 14 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and four triples on 5-of-7 shooting in 22 minutes in a win over the Thunder on Saturday.
Five of Oni's seven attempts were 3-pointers and his shot was most certainly falling tonight. Just like fellow rookie Justin Wright-Foreman, Oni won't see much time next season due to Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell being in front of him.
July 6, 2019, 6:36 pmJustin Wright-ForemanPG, Utah Jazz
Justin Wright-Foreman finished with 14 points, six rebounds, two assists, three steals and one triple on 3-of-14 shooting in a team-high 28 minutes vs. the Thunder on Saturday.
Wright-Foreman's shot wasn't falling tonight as he also went 1-of-5 from beyond the arc. Most of his points came from the charity stripe where he went 7-of-8. With Mike Conley and Donovan Mitchell firmly in front of him, he won't be seeing much playing time next season and might find himself playing a ton of time in the G-League.
July 6, 2019, 6:31 pmTony BradleyC, Utah Jazz
Tony Bradley put up 19 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block on 9-of-14 shooting in 26 minutes.
This was Bradley's third straight double-double and he's definitely improving his case to be on an NBA roster. He did lead the Jazz in turnovers and missed his only 3-point attempt but he's been Utah's most consistent player this summer. He's stuck behind Rudy Gobert and Ed Davis so he won't have much fantasy value, but the talent is there.
July 6, 2019, 2:46 pmMike ConleyPG, Utah Jazz
Mike Conley is now officially a member of the Utah Jazz in a trade involving Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen and 23rd pick Darius Bazley.
The Grizzlies will also acquire a future protected first-round pick. Korver will be involved in another to the Suns while Crower, Allen and Bazley should stay for the Memphis rebuild. Conley will form a dynamic backcourt with Donovan Mitchell while Grizzlies owner Robert Parra issued a statement that the team will one day hang Conley's jersey in the rafters after spending 12 memorable seasons with them.

July 3, 2019, 10:52 pmMiye OniPG, Utah Jazz
Miye Oni, the 58th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, led the Jazz to an 84-81 win over the Spurs on Wednesday with 17 points on 5-of-12 shooting.
He added six rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and four triples to the box score. Oni won Ivy League Player of the Year in the 2018-19 season with averages of 17.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. He is fighting with fellow rookie Justin Wright-Foreman for a roster spot, so a performance like this one definitely helps his case. Regardless, we may not see much of Oni or Wright-Foreman next season as the Jazz are contenders in the Western Conference.
July 3, 2019, 10:47 pmWillie ReedC, Utah Jazz
Willie Reed had a spectacular performance in the Jazz Summer League win over the Spurs on Wednesday as he put up 14 points and 16 rebounds.
Reed has some NBA experience as he played for four different teams over the past three seasons. He did not play in the 2018-19 season, but he is hoping to make a comeback this season. He shot 7-of-13 from the field and added one steal and one block to the box score. Reed could earn a spot on an NBA roster if he keeps up this type of play.
July 2, 2019, 10:53 pmTony BradleyC, Utah Jazz
Tony Bradley put up a monster double-double in an 86-71 win over the Cavs in the Salt Lake City Summer League on Tuesday, going for 26 points (9-of-13 FGs, 8-of-10 FTs), 16 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 26 minutes.
The 28th pick in the 2017 draft, Bradley has played just 65 NBA minutes in his two seasons. He's just 21, so there's still hope that he can crack the rotation at some point. But with the Jazz loading up for a run at a championship, it's unlikely that we see much of him this season. Second-round pick Justin Wright-Foreman also had a nice game in this one with 20 points (8-of-13 FGs), four dimes and two triples.
July 2, 2019, 8:57 pmEmmanuel MudiayPG, Utah Jazz
Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting the Jazz have reached a one-year agreement in principle with free agent point guard Emmanuel Mudiay.
The Jazz aren't playing around this offseason. Mudiay will come off the bench for Mike Conley after being cast off by the Knicks, who did not extend a qualifying offer. Mudiay averaged 14.8 points per game on 44.6 percent shooting from the field last season. He replaces Raul Neto, who the Jazz let walk on Tuesday.

July 2, 2019, 7:05 pmJeff GreenSF, Utah Jazz
Free agent F Jeff Green has agreed to a one-year, $2.5M deal with the Jazz.
This is a quality under-the-radar signing for the Jazz's biggest weak spot. Green could find himself in the starting lineup as Ed Davis is currently penciled in as the team's starting PF. Joe Ingles and Royce O'Neale should also see some time at the four, but Green is looking like a late-round deep league option fantasy circles barring more moves.

Tony Bradley was one of the few members of the Jazz to show up in Monday's 68-85 loss to the Grizzlies, opening his Summer League with 14 points, 15 rebounds and two blocks.
Bradley hit half of his 12 shots but went only 2-of-6 at the charity stripe. He only appeared in three games for the Jazz last season and underwent a meniscectomy and debridement in his right knee, but he figures to serve as the Jazz's third-string center this season.
