SALT LAKE CITY – New Utah Jazz guard Malik Beasley showed off some dance moves late in the fourth quarter after hitting a big three-pointer against the Nuggets.

Denver was making a comeback against the Jazz when Malik Beasley drilled a three-pointer to extend their lead to 111-98 with 4:51 remaining in the game. Beasley started dancing when he hit that three, which caused the Nuggets to call a timeout. The new Jazz guard was up to 15 points and five rebounds off the bench while shooting 5-for-12 from the field and 3-of-9 from the three-point line.

New Faces On Jazz Season-Opening Roster

Kelly Olynyk – The tenth-year center was acquired in the Bojan Bogdanovic trade from the Detroit Pistons and started each game for the Jazz during the preseason.

Malik Beasley – The seventh-year guard joined the Jazz in the Rudy Gobert and figures to be a major part of the team’s offense, though he missed the team’s final two preseason games with a sprained ankle.

Lauri Markkanen – The sixth-year forward was acquired by the Jazz in the Donovan Mitchell trade and led the team in scoring during the preseason at 16.5 points per game.

Collin Sexton – The fifth-year guard was acquired by the Jazz in a sign-and-trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Mitchell, and will earn $71 million over the next four seasons.

Jarred Vanderbilt – The fifth-year forward was acquired by the Jazz in the Gobert trade and was a prominent part of the rotation during the preseason.

Talen Horton-Tucker – The fourth-year forward was sent to the Jazz by the Los Angeles Lakers in exchange for Patrick Beverley and was a fixture in the team’s second unit during the preseason.

Leandro Bolmaro – The second-year guard was acquired in the Gobert trade and was rarely used during the preseason but made the roster over Jared Butler.

Micah Potter – The second-year center signed a two-way contract with the Jazz but didn’t appear in any preseason games.

Ochai Agbaji – The rookie wing was acquired in the Mitchell trade from the Cavaliers after being selected with the 14th pick of June’s NBA Draft.

Simone Fontecchio – The Italian rookie forward joined the Jazz over the summer and played sparingly in preseason despite being the team’s only true free-agent signing.

Johnny Juzang – The rookie signed a two-way deal with the Jazz on draft night after going unselected out of UCLA.

Walker Kessler – The rookie center was acquired in the Gobert trade and was the Jazz most promising first-year player in each of the four preseason games.

The game is televised on AT&T SportsNet and can be heard on 97.5 The KSL Sports Zone.
