    Good for JU!

    That's 3 Hawks on summer league rosters, Cook - Denver, Jok - Ortlando, and Jarrod.

    The Pistons second game is scheduled for Saturday at 2:30 central time on ESPNU.

    Not sure it it will be affected by the earthquake.

    JU's opportunities are going to start narrowing. He's a guy that can play defense, rebound, and shoot the three...at some point he has to make a roster spot. He's just a bit of a tweener...maybe not quick enough to guard a three and not big enough to muscle up with a power 4.

    Keep hitting threes...that's a key...everyone wants someone who can knock down threes off the bench.

    I don't think it is his skill set. I think it is his confidence. Not going to put the "soft" label on him, but he needs to get mentality tougher. Full disclosure, I am basing this on his Iowa days not where he is at now(which could be completely different).

    JU's 3rd game is today, Monday, at 4 PM central time on ESPNU.

    I agree with the thought that JU is a bit of a tweener. Not really big and strong enough to bang with the big boys inside not really quick enough to run with the many gazelle like small forwards in the game today. He does a lot of good things. I remember Toronto liking him because with his length and shot blocking ability he could defend the three. What he really needs to do is be a deadeye shooter from deep, I believe that's his ticket. I think he has it in him but he has to show it on a consistent basis. Maybe he just doesn't want to go back to Russia?

    Not bad stat lines, especially adding in the assists and steals.

    JU has by far his best game in the summer league. Pistons beat the Pacers 102-84.

    4 steals and 3 blocks in 21 minutes is pretty impressive to go along with the decent offensive numbers. Looks like the whole starting unit played well together. All 5 of them were at least +25 on the game while the bench all posted a negative +/-.

    JU has another good game as the Pistions remain undefeated with a 15 point win over Philly.

    JU was guarding the PG at the top of the key for a good part of the second half.

    Those cold Russian winters evidently made JU finally grow some hair on the top of his head!

    He can obviously play at the G League/Summer League level, I have to imagine he gets another shot in the NBA soon. Not many guys shooting and defending like that out there.

    I love how JU is standing there for like 4 seconds with his arms out wide open

    Summer league is over for JU and the Pistons.

    Out of our 3 Hawks in the summer league, Jarrod seems to have the best chance of making an NBA roster this year. He had a solid performance in Vegas and seems to have his game in a good place. Does that mean it will happen? Who knows.

    First he needs to get invited to the Pistons or another team's fall camp. Then he needs to make the roster. Minimum salary for a 3rd year player is $1.1M so the stakes are high.
