5. Darius Bazley

It sounds weird to think that someone who appeared in six games for the Jazz during the 2023-24 season would be of any importance at all during a time like this. However, Bazley was once heavily featured in the Oklahoma City Thunder's rotation. Whether they were vying for the playoffs or rebuilding, they once counted on Bazley.

Sadly, that hasn't been the case in quite some time. Over the past few years, Bazley's role has fallen through the cracks enough that his NBA career is hanging by a thread. If there's one player on the Jazz who will definitely take the Summer League seriously, it will be Bazley,

As the most experienced player on the roster, going into his fifth year in the NBA, Bazley could use his NBA experience as a way to make himself stand out as both a player and as a role model for the plethora of young Jazz players.
