Luka Samanic

I like Luka Samanic enough to give him a shot, and he got a shot. Not a great shot, but sometimes you have to make do with what you're given and Samanic was given a shot over the last two seasons. He looked like he really took the proverbial bull by the horns last year, shooting over 45% from the floor while averaging just under 10 points, four rebounds and two assists per game in a handful of outings.

This year, he was given far more opportunities but saw his field goal percentage dip nearly 80 points from last season to this season, shooting just under 38% from the floor. While that's bad enough, the other major issue that Samanic is facing beyond his scoring inefficiency is his lack of a general impact when he's on the court.

He's not a good defender, he's not a good passer, he's not a good three-point forward, he's not a good rebounder. He lacks any one thing that would let you know he's worth holding onto. He's now 24 and like with Horton-Tucker, is a finished product for all intents and purposes. Clearly, he hasn't been truly unlocked yet, and that next level to his game may never come. With the Jazz needing every spot possible to improve their roster, Samanic has to go to make room for improvements.
