Utah loved Green’s professionalism, sources say. But, at this point, the Jazz wanted to clear minutes for Georges Niang because of his shooting and the threat it poses to opposing teams. The Jazz are also very happy with rookie Jarrell Brantley, according to sources. Brantley, a 6-foot-7 power forward, has been a significant force for the G League Salt Lake City Stars. He’s currently on a two-way deal. And while minutes with the Jazz aren’t imminent, the Jazz clearly see him as a potential rotation player at some point.
The Utah Jazz power forward exited his car on Friday night and walked to his apartment in a haze. One moment, he was in the locker room following a win, smiling, laughing, preparing for a shower and a change into regular clothing. The next, he was leaving Vivint Smart Home Arena in a rush after a suspicious package was found, forcing an evacuation following a 113-109 win over the Golden State Warriors. Niang exited in a haste, the fear of the unknown supplying a sense of urgency. He was still wearing his purple game uniform. He hadn’t showered. He didn’t have the change of clothes he came to the arena with. He barely had time to dry off from the game.

“The developmental thing is to be mentioned first — that’s the first part of the job, getting the guys better,” he said. “… Getting Georges Niang onto the first team is the thing that I get judged on. The biggest thing is identifying what they need, and then the nice thing is, I can get them — in the game — what they need,” Schiller said. “… I’ve got the chance with my program to put guys into situations in the game, where they can actually really blossom.”
