Much like Hendricks, we didn't get to see a whole lot of Sensabaugh with the Utah Jazz until later in the season. However, he was torching teams in the G league. Similar to George, the Ohio State product had some slumps and efficiency issues, but proved to be a flashy scorer who could get a bucket from just about anywhere.

In his rookie campaign, Sensabaugh averaged 7.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.7 assists while shooting 39%. His playing style bears a strong resemblance to Jordan Clarkson's, and if he can refine his shot selection and increase his shooting accuracy, he has the potential to become a vital scorer for the Utah Jazz in the future.

Had his shooting percentage been higher and had he been given more opportunities, his grade could have been a bit higher. Considering his performance, a C seems like a fair grade for Sensabaugh, but like the other rookies, he exhibits considerable promise. The future of the Utah Jazz appears to be in good hands
