NBA ROLE: (UTILITY) ALL-AROUND FORWARD

 

A former second rounder outta Iowa State, Georges Niang brings his ‘old man game’ to Utah; multi-faceted forward: rebounds, makes plays, can methodically get to the rim; working on a better outside J, accuracy on the move; play initiator under Quin Snyder one day? – Niang loves finding teammates (sometimes it’ll look pretty, sometimes it won’t) – patient, deceptive w/ fakes, takes his time before deciding his next move; overlooked in the past – lacks upper-echelon athleticism, doesn’t have a defined position; will continue developing between G League & Association as Utah jockeys for positioning out West
