After starting his career as the 15th man on the roster signed to help lottery pick and fellow Australian Dante Exum with his transition to the NBA, Ingles rapidly worked his way into the rotation as one of the most trustworthy players during the Quin Snyder era.

Despite barely catching on with an NBA team as a rookie, Ingles went on to play 590 games for the Jazz, including 313 starts.

During his time in Utah, the 6-foot-8 guard averaged 8.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.2 blocks, and 0.9 steals in 25.7 minutes per game.

Ingles is the Jazz franchise leader with 1,071 made threes, ranks fifth in total assists, ninth in steals, sixth in three-point percentage, and third in effective field-goal percentage.

Follow the rest of the Jazz 50 countdown with Jake and Ben Monday through Friday at 11:30 leading up to the opening day of the regular season. You can see the full list here.
