Utah Jazz Rank: Grayson Allen voted as the 11th most valuable player

After 1 preseason game, would the results have changed already?

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

I can’t help but wonder if the results of the last round of voting would be different had it been after the first Utah Jazz preseason game...

Nonetheless, Grayson Allen was voted as the 11th most valuable player on the Utah Jazz roster. After a long and successful college career at Duke University, the 6’4” guard decided it was time to make the jump to the NBA. Averaging 15.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 4.6 assists and shooting 37% form 3 landed him at number 21 in the draft.

How many minutes he gets under Quin Snyder will be very interesting to watch. This Jazz team is built for deep playoff runs, so developing the rookie won’t be as easy or big of a focus as in years past. Will he play well enough to force more minutes his way? Could Snyder’s system bring out his strengths better than Duke did? Or will he struggle like most rookie guards do and spend time in the G League like most 21st picks do?

Only time will tell, but he sure got off to a great start against the Australian side Perth. He led all scorers with 19, including starting off 4/4 from downtown.

On we go with another round of voting. We’re getting down to the 2-deep roster now!
