Stone produced 14 points (4-8 FG, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocked shots and an assist across 24 minutes in Thursday's 75-70 Sumeer League playoff win over the Magic.
Stone appears to be a virtual lock to snag a training camp slot after putting together an impressive campaign in Las Vegas. A second-round pick by the Clippers, Stone most recently played with Utah's G-League squad, and the Maryland product has shown he has the goods to make it in the NBA. Utah's current roster doesn't avail him of many opportunities, so it remains to be seen if he'll find himself with the Jazz in October.
Stone finished Tuesday's 90-98 summer league loss to the Heat with 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 24 minutes.
Stone was a force offensively Tuesday and knocked down an efficient 63.6 percent of his 11 field goal attempts. That resulted in 17 points, which matched first-round draft pick Grayson Allen for a team-high. Stone's scoring production should put him in play for summer league DFS purposes on any given night and if he continues to up his totals on the boards like he did Tuesday, his value will only increase.
A 2016 second-round pick of the Clippers, Stone is trying to carve out a training camp invite at a minimum. The third-year big man logged 31 games (13 starts) with the Salt Lake City Stars of the G-League last season, averaging 16.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists across 24.3 minutes. Stone averaged a modest 13.0 minutes over two games in the Utah Summer League, so he'll look to carve out additional opportunity during Las Vegas contests.
Stone recorded 23 points (9-18 FG, 5-6 FT), 12 rebounds, four blocks and one steal during Friday's narrow 113-112 win over Northern Arizona.
The big-man from Maryland got back on track after two mediocre games and produced his fourth double-double this season. Lately, Stone has been rebounding at a better rate than earlier in the season, as he is now averaging 6.2 rebounds per game to go along with 14.6 points.
Stone did not play Tuesday against Santa Cruz due to an illness.
The former Maryland center is averaging 13.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game during his second year in the G-League. Moving forward, it's uncertain when Stone is expected to return, although the Stars don't play until Feb. 21 due to the All-Star break.
