Utah Jazz Summer League Game 2 of 3: Utah Jazz vs. San Antonio Spurs (2-0)
One. This many Jazzmen sitting behind the bench. You gotta love it, baby.
From left to right, that’s Derrick Favors, Elijah Millsap, Raul Neto, [Rudy Gobert leg/knee span space], Rudy Gobert, [Rudy Gobert leg/knee span space], Trevor Booker, Alec Burks and Trey Lyles[‘s back].
Two. Who’s who of Utah Jazz coaches (1981-present) in the house tonight:
Three. Leading Question of the Night
Steve Brown to Trey Lyles: Let’s dispel any rumors. It was not a holdout. You were actually helping the Jazz out with the salary cap flexibility. Now you’re officially here.*
* OK, fine. None of that was a question.
Four. Dennis Lindsey during the broadcast, on what held up Trey Lyles’ contract signing
It’s really simple. Look, his cap hold was a much different number than what he signs for at the full 120 percent. And we needed to have a few days to, in free agency, to have the conversations that we needed to have to gain clarity.
Five. Trey Lyles addressing the media after the game, on what held up his contract signing
You know, just my agent, so. I was listening to him. You know, you’d be better off asking him that than me.
Six. Alec Burks took over the Jazz’s Twitter account in the second half. Best part besides him once again referencing “Alec Burks” as his “government name”:
Seven. Jack Cooley’s walkoff interview, decoded
Steve Brown: All due respect, you’re a guy who proves that you don’t have to skywalk to play this game.
Steve Brown: You white boys can play basketball.
Jack Cooley: Yeah, I mean, it all comes down to fundamentals, and I mean, the more you play, the more you learn.
Jack Cooley: True. We’re scrappy.
Eight. Soon, Raul Neto. Soon.
