Joe Ingles. Royce O’Neale. And now Georges Niang. Dennis Lindsey/Justin Zanik and company continue to find guys on minimum deals that can contribute to a winning team. Niang obviously hasn’t experienced the level of success as the first two yet, but he’s improved as a player and earned his spot on the roster.
Niang has seen a modest uptick in minutes so far this season, something that shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise. His reliable outside shooting and solid playmaking fits extremely well in the modern NBA. And that’s exactly what he’s done so far this season. His role could become even more important if the Jazz experience any injuries this season.
Ultimately I don’t think his ceiling reaches O’Neale or Ingles heights, but he’s still providing great value on a minimum contract. His development the past few years has been great to watch and he has officially proven that he belongs in this league. Could he prove even more this year?
Who is the 8th most valuable player on the Utah Jazz roster?
