The Jazz have officially signed rookie Miye Oni to a contract.
Oni was the 58th overall pick in the draft and figures to spend most of his year in the G-League, though he did have a few strong moments in Summer League, averaging 8.2 points, 2.8 assists and 2.0 rebounds in 25.4 mpg. The Ivy League Player of the Year is only a target in deep dynasty formats.

Miye Oni puts up four points, three rebounds and three assists on 1-of-6 shooting during Saturday's loss to the Hornets.
Oni played a team high 29 minutes but just could not get anything going on offense. He has been shooting with during Summer League, so this looks like it could be chalked up as a bad day.

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.

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.

The Jazz have selected Yale product Miye Oni with the 58th pick of the 2019 NBA Draft.
Oni is a 6’6″ wing with a 6’11” winspan, who can bring an athletic touch to the position for the Jazz. He averaged 17.1 points and 6.3 rebounds per game on his way to being named the Ivy League Player of the Year. He’s going to battle for a rotation spot on a contending Jazz team, so we might not see much of him in his rookie campaign in 2019-20.
