Mitrou-Long was a staple for Utah's G-League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, last season. He started 35 of his 40 appearances, averaging 18.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.2 steals while shooting 42.4 percent from the field and hitting 3.4 threes per tilt at 37.7 percent. In signing a two-way deal, he'll spend the majority of the 2018-19 campaign in the G-League once again.
Mitrou-Long recorded 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, eight assists and two steals across 28 minutes in Tuesday's 95-92 loss to the Grizzlies.
Mitrou-Long spent part of last season with the Jazz on a two-way contract and also some time on a pair of 10-day contracts, so the two sides are plenty familiar with each other. Still, Mitrou-Long's performance Tuesday was a nice surprise, as the 24-year-old nearly put together a triple-double. If he can continue to show this sort of all-around production throughout summer league, Mitrou-Long should once again put himself into consideration for one of the team's two-way contracts. That said, he's still likely to spend the bulk of the upcoming season in the G-League.
Mitrou-Long, after going undrafted last season, played only one minute at the NBA level with the Jazz. However, he was a key contributor for the organization's G-League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars. There, he started 35 of his 40 appearances, averaging 18.0 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.2 steals. The 6-foot-4 guard also swished 3.4 threes per game at a 37.7 percent mark.
Mitrou-Long was recalled from the G-League's Salt Lake City Stars on Wednesday.
Long is on the second of his 10-day deals with the Jazz, though has only appeared in one game for the team, totaling three points in one minute. It seems unlikely he'll see significant run moving forward, barring an injury to someone else on the roster or a blowout.
Mitrou-Long was assigned to the G-League's Salt Lake City Stars on Tuesday.
Long recently signed a second 10-day deal with the Jazz, though did not take the floor in the first two games he was eligible for. He's played 34 G-League games this season, averaging 17.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.1 steals in 34.7 minutes.
