Royce O'Neale

Royce O'Neale was a great find as an undrafted free agent, but now, the Utah Jazz would be wise to bring back the perimeter player as just a standard free agent. O'Neale went undrafted in 2015 and quickly found his way to the Utah Jazz where he became a three-and-D type player. He was never great offensively, nor was he great defensively, but he was good enough to shoot the ball from behind the line and tough enough to guard the best defenders on defense.

He just wasn't going to win you any individual postseason awards, like Most Improved, Sixth Man of the Year, or Defensive Player of the Year. Still, he was someone who made the Jazz better and could still make the Jazz better.

The Jazz are in need of signing someone who can play good perimeter basketball, something O'Neale can do. He's not going to lock down Luka Doncic or make Steph Curry pay for slacking off of at the three-point line, but he can give you good, nonliability minutes on both ends of the court. Considering most current Jazz players can't give you any minutes without being a net negative on one of the sides of the court, that speaks volumes to the improvement that O'Neal brings.
