My NBA career started on a horrible note. I went undrafted, but honestly, what player from Northwestern actually gets drafted? In college, I averaged 14.5 PPG, 6 APG, and 5 REB per game. Luckily, after months of hard work, I was offered a tryout by many teams.

- Utah Jazz
- Orlando Magic
- Milwaukee Bucks
- Sacramento Kings
- Atlanta Hawks
- Detroit Pistons
- Minnesota Timberwolves
- Washington Wizards
- New Orleans Pelicans
- Denver Nuggets
- Phoenix Suns

I decided to try out for the Utah Jazz. They need a point guard and I can fill that role. I was required to have a D+ teammate grade to make the team. I had a fantastic scrimmage, scoring 6 points, grabbing 3 rebounds, and dishing 4 assists. The Jazz offered me a 10-day contract. This was my chance to impress.

These players from Northwestern actually got drafted

also the Jazz have Trey Burke, Alec Burks and Dante Exum in the backcourt. why do they need yet another young guard? and why are they so desperate that they'll take anyone with a D+ grade or higher?

First NBA Game
In my first game, I scored 7 points and got 1 assist. We beat the Celtics 64-59. My game wasn't bad, but it could be a lot better.

It's a joke, I know players have been drafted. I don't know why the Jazz are so desperate tbh.

Well it seems like you picked the wrong place to go because Exum or Burke are probably their future PG. I think that's what Agent was getting at. Heat could use a PG besides Napier and Cole, for example.
