TIPOFF – August 21 – If you’re a top-5 defense, you win what?

Utah Jazz radio voice and Jazz NBA Insider David Locke looks at the Jazz’s roster staff promotions, and then he digs deep on the question: If you’re a top-5 defensive team in the NBA, how many games do you win?

INSIDER – Jazz sign Treveon Graham

Today the Utah Jazz signed 6-foot-6 Treveon Graham—who played collegiately at VCU—to a contract. Graham went undrafted this last draft and participated in the summer league for the San Antonio Spurs in Salt Lake City. Graham has a 6-foot-10.5 wingspan and played shooting guard at VCU. He took five 3-pointers a game, making 38%. Graham finished as VCU’s No. 2 all-time leading scorer. His nickname in college was “The Freight Train.”

Graham has been fighting the odds for a while. He only received two scholarship offers out of high school—VCU and Cleveland State.

He has been compared to Jared Dudley and Jae Crowder.
