Utah Jazz Rank: Tyler Cavanaugh voted last

New, comments

Could he follow Royce O’Neale’s path from last year?

NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Atlanta Hawks Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Round one of the voting is in the books and newcomer Tyler Cavanaugh has been voted as the 17th most valuable player on the Utah Jazz roster.

Cavanaugh played in 39 games last year for the Atlanta Hawks, averaging 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds on 36% from 3. The 24 year old forward out of George Washington University is hoping to build on that during his time on a two-way contract with the Utah Jazz.

Tyler also spent some time in the G-League last year, playing 11 games for the Erie Bayhawks. He has the look of a stretch 4, being 6’9 and having shot 45% from 3 on 4.6 attempts in the G-League.

Expectations likely aren’t high for Utah Jazz fans considering he’s an end-of-the bench guy if he makes it onto the active roster. But maybe they should be. Last year GM Dennis Lindsey brought in Royce O’Neale, and we also ranked him the 17th most valuable player during last summer’s voting. We all know how that ended up.

Could Cavanaugh carve out a similar path?

Alright let’s get to our 2nd round of voting for this year’s #JazzRank
