Thomas Wilder (Western Michigan)

True point guard, 6-foot-3 size with athleticism and good defensive reputation. Inconsistent shooter, but the potential is there.

Found this. Not sure his length. Could be someone for Stars as well.

Tony Jones: I’m told Isaac Haas for Jazz summer league isn’t quite done, but is trending that way. Strong chance he’s on the roster. Big man from Purdue – via Twitter tribjazz

Sure, there have been missteps (Trey Lyles, Trey Burke), but overall, Lindsey's return has far exceeded the value of his picks during his tenure as the Jazz's top basketball executive.

Wouldn't call Lyles a misstep. The biggest problem has been throwing these guys into the line-up and not making them earn anything. Trey might have worked after his rookie year if he hadn't been handed the starting job as a rookie.

Quote:
I'm very anxious to see Allen's summer league performance. If he struggles against the varied cast of guard opponents who are trying to make it to the NBA, it will be a very bad sign for a prospect of his age. On the other hand, he has a chance to show exactly what made those workouts stand out and that he can continue to be a difference maker at the next level.

I'd agreee that he needs to look good in summer league at his age

Quote:
“He fits Ricky Rubio; he fits Dante Exum because he can really shoot,” Lindsey said. “He fits Donovan Mitchell because either of them can bring it up, create on the front end of the possessions and also finish on the back end of possessions.”

Another way to go about it would be getting rid of the guys that can't shoot!

Quote:
And yet Allen, barring a suprising surge as a rookie, won’t be the piece that bridges that gap. That could be Derrick Favors, who is testing free agency, but has said he’s open to returning. It also could be Exum, who has shown flashes of his top-5 potential in between a frustrating string of injuries.

You aren't winning championships with the same team plus a rookie!

Quote:
It’s notable that the Jazz didn’t draft any players who could look to replace either of them — even restricted free agent Raul Neto still could have a defined role as Utah’s third point guard. While the Jazz can’t communicate with free agents until July 1, the draft can be read as a vote of confidence that Utah hopes to bring back those pieces.

Neto has to be smarter than that. This guys is basically a bigger better Neto it sounds like to me. Someone that Snyder can love like he will never love Neto. Raul will be loved. It just won't be in Utah.

Quote:
“The exit interviews went really well, and we have good relationships with all three agencies,” Lindsey said. “I don’t know anything that would get in the way of a deal, but they have to vet their market, we have to vet our market, and then we have to compare some notes and see if there a marriage — three marriages in this case — to be made.”

What should get in the way is improving the team. They need shooting. Favors and Exum aren't shooters. Neto is but he deserves to play. Exum I can see being brought back at the right price and amount of years probably one because he is young and still has potential. Favors will never be the 3 point shooter they need him to be. Neto isn't growing suddenly.

Quote:
It was also telling that the Jazz, who have brought back three picks each of the past two seasons, sold their second-round pick to the Houston Rockets for cash considerations.

It tells me Lindsey has done a bad job with the 2nd round picks recently and at least got money for a guy that would be on another team within a year.

Quote:
It’s not a typical move by the Jazz under Lindsey, but Utah’s competition for roster spots could be as competitive as ever: 2017 first-round pick Tony Bradley has spent much of his offseason in Utah to develop his game and prove he can merit a future role with the Jazz. Lindsey also name-dropped Georges Niang, a two-way player who dominated the G-League last year, has spent some of his offseason in Utah, and he hopes to take another leap. Erik McCree and Naz Mitrou-Long also hope to make an impression in Summer League starting on July 2.

Bradley and Udoh fighting it out for the back-up center minutes. If Bradley is great in summer league maybe let Udoh go and get a cheaper vet to full the end of the bench

Niang can play. Not sure if physically he is an NBA player though. He has to get in tip top shape and prove it. McCree isn't as good but might have more upside as a NBA player. Long has the size(not sure on length) and is multi skilled. He has a chance of doing something too. We'll see in Summer League rather any of them(Goss?) should be expected to contribute this upcoming season. Griffin, Exum and Mitchell were the only ones to emerge a year ago and Griffin was let go and Exum still sucks on offense. What are all of these battles? Back-up center if Favors leaves? His minutes at PF? Who backs up Ingles, Mitchell and Rubio besides O'Neale, Crowder(probably Exum) and eventually Allen? Who sits at the end of the bench? Who plays for the Stars? The Jazz need to add some proven guys before you talk about how competitive camp will be

Quote:
“All those guys and more have been putting in good work,” Lindsey said. “We’re very confident in what’s been happening in the offseason.”

I'm not. Internal improvements doesn't beat GS or Houston. Need to make some moves starting July 1st to give themselves a chance.
