The former UNC Tar Heel shined inside during Summer League loss.
Ed Davis made things interesting. The per 36 rebounding superstar (17.3) will be the Jazz’s backup center. Behind him, no comment until the deal is official (2 years for $10 million according to Woj). Utah’s Summer League squad includes two professional level bigs – Willie Reed and Tony Bradley.
The Athletic’s Tony Jones summed the situation well.
Not sure how viable, especially with the Ed Davis signing…Jazz May want to roll with Bradley as the third center https://t.co/yc1GHk4VWI

Tony Bradley’s contract includes a team option for 2020-2021. Bradley appeared in three games during the Jazz’s regular season – twice in the final week of the campaign.
Willie Reed is familiar with the organization. The Salt Lake City Stars selected Reed with the first overall pick in the 2018 G League Draft. He averaged 20.1 points and 11.2 rebounds in 21 starts before being sidelined with a season-ending injury in January.

In the Summer League opener, Bradley started and posted 14 points and 15 rebounds in nearly 25 minutes. In 15 minutes, Reed scored 12 and grabbed 5 boards with the second unit.
