Utah Jazz Player Grades - (Determing impact, not potential)

They Get an "A"

When looking at players who have impressed in 2023-2024, it really only comes down to two names; Collin Sexton and Lauri Markkanen. Both men are playing like All-Star talent and are the driving force for the offense. Sexton finally got his shot after riding the pine pony since coming to Salt Lake City and he's not looked back. Markkanen should be on his way to a second All-Star game, but we'll see if he has enough qualified games to get him there.

They Get a "B"

You can't deny that the defensive impact of Kris Dunn and Walker Kessler hasn't been necessary and important. The two men have made the Jazz a threat on the other end of the court on more nights than night. Also getting a 'B' is Kelly Olynyk, the jack-of-all-trades forward who can give the team a little bit of everything.

They Get a "C"

We'd be much higher on John Collins and Jordan Clarkson if they scored more points than they have up. Considering they give up a lot of points and can't really play defense at all, giving them a C is generous. As for Simone Fontecchio, he's improved the starting five but he's far from an impact player

They Get a "D"

Few players have disappointed like Ochai Agbaji, and his accuracy this season is the reason why. Talen Horton-Tucker proved he could help a team on defense but his limited offense makes him a mostly one trick pony., Keyonte George has shown flashes but he's not a winning player at this point in his career.

They Get an "F"

Rookies Taylor Hendricks and Brice Sensabaugh have made zero impact on the team. Omer Yurtseven was getting reps until everyone saw how slow of foot he was. Luka Samanic, Micha Potter, and Johnny Juzang have hardly played.
