We’re through another round of voting, and this one actually hurts to write. Local product Joel Bolomboy is considered the 2nd least valuable player on the Utah Jazz roster, pulling in 39% of the vote.

I admit I also voted for him in this spot, but not because I wanted to. I feel like he has an NBA level talent in his rebounding, and offers great athleticism as well. He’s young enough to still add plenty to his game, and I really hope he finds a role in the league.

His D-League stats show a player that is too good for that level. In 24 games there last year, he put up 16.6 points, 13.3 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks. He also shot 46.8% from 3 (!) on 2 attempts per game.

Unfortunately he disappeared during summer league this year, and may have to earn his way back on to the roster. Even if he was released, I really hope the Jazz can bring him right back on a 2-way contract.

Up next is the 3rd least valuable player on the roster. Maybe I should start to spin this more positively and call it the Xth most valuable... saying least valuable makes me feel sad, especially about a guy I like in Joel Bolomboy.
