The Utah Jazz have quietly had a productive off-season and their latest move only adds to the talent on the list, as ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Golden State Warriors swapped jazz power forward Eric Paschall for a protected future second-round pick to have.
Paschall, who finished sixth in the 2019-20 NBA Rookie of the Year poll (above RJ Barrett’s third overall), has a career average of 12.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 23, 5 minutes per game (with 49.7 percent shooting from the field). .
For the Jazz who signed veteran striker Rudy Gay and all-star guard Mike Conley while acquiring rights to rookie guard Jared Butler in the 2021 NBA draft, the inclusion of Paschall boosts the efforts of the Teams to be an impressive offensive team.
With Donovan Mitchell, players like Paschall already boast one of the league’s outstanding perimeter talents and a bevy of excellent outside shooters in the playoffs.
Paschall is also considered a respectable head-to-head defender, which likely appeals to Jazz head coach Quin Snyder and a front office that has built a formidable defense anchored by three-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert.
