Oni signed a contract with the Jazz on Monday, Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune reports. The details of the contract aren't clear, though it's not a two-way contract so there's a good chance Oni will safely be on the roster when the regular season rolls around. Still, the second-rounder is likely to spend the bulk of his time with the Jazz's G League affiliate.
Oni supplied eight points (3-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 25 minutes during the Jazz's 87-78 loss to the Rockets in a Las Vegas Summer League game Thursday. The 2019 second-round pick wasn't very efficient with his shot, but he remained aggressive and managed to get to a serviceable final line with the help of a pair of three-pointers. Despite his struggles Thursday, Oni has been more accurate the more he's played, as he still shooting 44.0 percent over four Las Vegas games after generating a 33.0 percent success rate across two games in the Salt Lake City league to open summer.
Oni totaled four points (1-6 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists and one block across 28 minutes during the Jazz's 97-93 win over the Trail Blazers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Tuesday. The 2019 second-round pick drew the start and saw plenty of minutes, but an inefficient shot led to a poor line. Oni was much sharper over his first two games in Las Vegas, averaging 12.5 points on 66.7 percent shooting.
Oni posted 11 points (3-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and a block across 22 minutes in Sunday's 93-81 loss to the Heat. After getting drafted by the Warriors in the second round, Oni was dealt to Utah in June. The 6-6 Yale product is a better fit for the Jazz, who could use another pure shooter on the roster. Oni should see consistent time in Vegas this summer.
Oni offered 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes during Saturday's 78-66 win over the Thunder. Oni put together a strong stat line, finishing with twice as many points as field goal attempts while draining four treys. Oni fills a position of need for the Jazz as a decent defender and three-point shooter along the wing, and he'll look to continue making a strong impression here in the summer league.
