Getting To Know Utah Jazz Newcomers Before Summer League

The Jazz’s first move after the draft was to sign UCLA wing Johnny Juzang to a two-way contract late draft night. Juzang’s two-way contract gives him a priority spot on the team’s summer league roster as there’s a significant chance he gets an opportunity to play with the Jazz primary roster during the 2022-23 season.

The former Bruins star would have likely been a first-round pick after his stellar performance in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, but hurt his stock during his junior season at UCLA.

Kofi Cockburn was one of the most productive players in college basketball last season averaging more than 20 points and 10 rebounds for the Illini.

Cockburn is a throwback big man with a bruising seven-foot, 285 frame which he uses to bully smaller opponents near the rim.

The Illinois center worked out for the Jazz during the predraft process and was quick to sign an Exhibit 10 deal with the team soon after the draft.

Jordan Usher had a memorable media session after working out for the Jazz showing off his competitive spirit in his fight to make the roster.

The Jazz run potential draftees through a drill during their workouts where guards are required to make six full-court six layups in 32 seconds while big men get 34 seconds.

Standing 6-foot-7, Usher was given 34 seconds to complete the drill but told Jazz officials he wanted to be timed as a guard.

Usher averaged 14.8 points and 6.5 rebounds as a fifth-year senior at Georgia Tech.
