Jazz add third second rounder Miye Oni from Yale

The Utah Jazz made busy work of picks in the 50’s during the NBA Draft. After trading up to take Jarrell Brantley with the 50th pick, taking Justin Wright-Foreman with the 53rd pick, they acquired the 58th pick from the Golden State Warriors and drafted Yale’s Miye Oni.

Oni averaged 17 points, six rebounds and three assists as a Junior at Yale.

Oni brings an NBA body who can knock down open threes, shooting 37% from deep as a Junior. In addition to shooting, Oni can attack off the dribble, finding passing options off the dribble.

Like Brantley and Wright-Foreman, Oni played against lesser competition at Yale, and will have to adjust to playing against significantly better talent at the NBA level, but as a Junior, won’t be an enormous project.
