2018 NBA Summer League: Isaac Haas to Utah

The Big man is off to the Jazz

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Purdue vs Michigan Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

We now have a third destination for our trio of Purdue seniors with NBA aspirations. Isaac Haas appears to have signed a deal to play for the Utah Jazz in the the Salt Lake City version of the NBA Summer League per Mike DeFabo:

This gives Haas a chance to impress scouts after the elbow injury that ended his senior season early. The Jazz list Rudy Gobert, Derrick Favors, and Tony Bradley as centers on their roster, but Haas has more size than all three of them.

Haas is still a longshot to make the league. he is an old school center in a league that is all about pace, space, shooting threes, athleticism, and more. If this were 25-30 years ago he would have been a lottery pick. Still, at least he has a chance. he can always fall back and play in Europe, where there is still good money to be earned.
