Jazz's Georges Niang: Scores team-high 18 points in LVSL playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niang posted 18 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and a steal across 28 minutes in Saturday's 92-86 Vegas Summer league second-round playoff loss to the Grizzlies.

Niang likely had a bit more spring in his step after agreeing to a multi-year deal with the Jazz on Friday, His Summer League performances have certainly warranted the deal. Over five games in Vegas, he's averaged 15.6 points and 6.6 rebounds while averaging 26.6 minutes on the floor.

Jazz's Georges Niang: Agrees to deal with Utah
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niang agreed to a multi-year contract with the Jazz on Friday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Niang signed a two-way deal with the Jazz in January of last season. He played just 32 minutes at the NBA level, spending most of his time in the G-League with the Salt Lake City Stars, where he averaged 22.0 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists while making 2.6 threes per game at a 52.7 percent clip. He continued the impressive play through this year's summer league, which likely helped earn him the deal, averaging 15.7 points, 5.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists while hitting 40.6 percent of his threes. Assuming he can continue drilling threes at a high level, he could earn more NBA minutes in 2018-19.

Jazz's Georges Niang: Keeps rolling in Summer League play with double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niang recorded 12 points (4-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot across 24 minutes in Thursday's 75-70 Summer League playoff win over the Magic.

Niang has done more than enough to warrant a closer look from the Jazz. He's led the team in scoring a few times and has churned out some double-doubles as well. He saw limited time with the team last season, which makes him a favorite to win a spot on the roster.

Jazz's Georges Niang: Leads team in scoring Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niang tallied 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 28 minutes during the Jazz's 90-85 win over the Knicks in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Sunday.

Niang's scoring and rebounding totals both paced the Jazz on the night. The 2016 second-round pick has been thriving in summer league play in both Utah and Las Vegas, which could bode well for his training camp and preseason prospects. Niang has seen 32 games of NBA action over his first two seasons, but he's averaged no more than 4.0 minutes per contest in either of those campaigns. Given his performances thus far, Niang bears monitoring for the remainder of summer league play.

Jazz's Georges Niang: Notches double-double Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niang was dominant during Tuesday's 95-92 loss to the Grizzlies, finishing with 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 10 rebounds, four assists and one steal across 28 minutes.

Niang has now put together a pair of very impressive outings to start the summer league, as the 25-year-old also put up 17 points in Monday's opener. Following a 2017-18 campaign where Niang was on a two-way contract with the Jazz for much of the season, he has a leg-up in the race to join the team for training camp and his strong start to the summer league certainly only helps the cause.
