Tony Bradley has been voted by you as the 12th most valuable player on the Utah Jazz roster. The University of North Carolina product is entering his 3rd year in the league and has spent most of his time with the SLC Stars so far. While his time in the G-league has been successful, he hadn’t yet shown enough to belong on the regular NBA roster.

The Jazz drafted him knowing he’d be a multi-year project before really bringing any returns. With Derrick Favors now out of the mix, there’s no better time than now for the prior 2017 first rounder to provide some bench minutes in the big leagues. Utah sacrificed luxury depth for higher-end talent, so if either Rudy Gobert or Ed Davis miss time due to injury then Bradley might finding himself playing a lot more minutes.

His almost-certain NBA skill is rebounding. He also appears to be a good finisher around the rim and his length lets him defend the rim decently well. He’s not particularly explosive and doesn’t have an outside shot, so his ceiling isn’t as high as other bigs his age. But if he can polish his inside game on both ends of the floor, Bradley could have a long career in the NBA as a backup center.

Next up is the 11th man vote.
