Utah Jazz Rank: Jae Crowder is the 6th man on the roster

How will a re-motivated, rejuvenated Jae Crowder look in his 2nd year in Utah?

NBA: Utah Jazz-Media Day Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Jae Crowder comes into his first full season with the Utah Jazz as the 6th most valuable player on the roster. It didn’t take long after his trade from Cleveland for Crowder to find himself in an important role under Quin Snyder.

During his time with the Jazz last season, Jae averaged 11.8 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. He was apart of the most successful Jazz lineups as a stretch 4. His shooting from Boston still hasn’t caught up to him, but I think that’s something we might see more of this year. With a full offseason in Utah, Jae Crowder seems ready to rock this year.

I didn’t always love his shot selection, but it’s easy to see how great he could be in Quin Snyder’s system. He could be a huge piece in a (hopefully) deep playoff run this year. I’m excited to see what he looks like in his 2nd year here.

Now it’s on to the starters!
