One of a pair of two-way players for the Jazz, Mitrou-Long has played almost exclusively at with the G League's Salt Lake City Stars this season. His appearance Saturday was just his second with the Jazz in 2018-19 and likely wouldn't have happened had Utah not turned the game into a runaway victory. Expect the Iowa State product to head back to the G League in the near future.
Mitrou-Long scored 27 points, along with six rebounds, six assists and a steal in the loss Tuesday to the Red Claws.
Mitrou-Long's sheer workload makes him a fantasy relevant asset, as the shooting guard once again registered a shade over 35 minutes during Tuesday's game. Arguably the Stars' most potent outside shooter, Mitrou-Long also acted as a facilitator, tying for the team-lead in assists with point guard Isaiah Cousins.
Mitrou-Long tallied 20 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in the 113-104 win over South Bay on Thursday.
Mitrou-Long did have seven turnovers, but its hard to be discouraged when the shooting guard nearly registered a triple-double. It's worth nothing that 15 of Mitrou-Long's team-high 20 points came from beyond the arc, but he's still a reliable scorer even if the long range shot isn't falling.
With the Jazz shorthanded for back-to-back games starting Friday, the team called up Mitrou-Long to add depth at the guard position. It's unlikely though that Mitrou-Long would see a decent amount of minutes in both Friday's and Saturday's contests considered Ricky Rubio and Dante Exum are still healthy.
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.
