Top Ochai Agbaji News

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Lands career-high 11 points

    Agbaji finished with 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and one rebound in 18 minutes during Thursday's 131-114 win over the Rockets.

    Agbaji popped for a career-high 11 points in the win, the start of what could be a stretch of noteworthy production. Head coach Will Hardy went on record earlier in the week, stating Agbaji would be featured in the rotation moving forward. While the 18 minutes did not mark a season-high, they were certainly encouraging. Agbaji is not a player to run and grab in standard formats, but those in deeper formats should at least monitor the situation.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Slots into rotation Tuesday

    Agbaji played seven minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 117-115 loss to the Kings, finishing with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and a turnover.

    With Collin Sexton (hamstring) sidelined Tuesday, the Jazz opted to fill his spot in the rotation with two players, as Nickeil Alexander-Walker (15 minutes) and Agbaji both saw light run after not appearing in Utah's previous game Saturday against the Heat. Agbaji didn't produce during his limited time on the court. Still, head coach Will Hardy said afterward that he feels the Jazz need the rookie's physicality and athleticism on the second unit, per Tony Jones of The Athletic. With that in mind, expect Agbaji to stick in the rotation Thursday in Houston, though the rookie first-round pick isn't guaranteed to see a dramatic uptick in playing time.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Adds 13 points Wednesday

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Recalled to Jazz

    The Jazz recalled Agbaji from the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League on Friday.

    Agbaji has only appeared in nine games for the Jazz this season. However, the rookie guard hasn't played more than six minutes since Oct. 31. Agbaji could be in store for extended minutes with Collin Sexton (hamstring) out for at least a week.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Shoots poorly in loss

    Agbaji tallied six points (2-8 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and one assist during Monday's loss to Stockton.

    Shooting poorly overall from the floor, Agbaji tied a season low offensively. The Kansas product has averaged 12.9 points across seven appearances with the Stars in the G League this year.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Sent to Salt Lake City

    Agbaji was assigned to the G League's Salt Lake City Stars on Sunday.

    Agbaji was recalled by the Jazz in late November, but he played just five minutes over two appearances during his time with the parent club. His move to the G League should allow him to see more playing time.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Recalled by Jazz

    The Jazz recalled Agbaji from the G League on Wednesday.

    Agbaji has appeared in six games for the Jazz this season, notching 3.3 points and 1.7 rebounds over 11.2 minutes per game. However, he's unlikely to see much run this time around with most of the roster healthy.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Adds 20 points Monday

    Agbaji amassed 20 points (8-19 FG, 4-13 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals during Monday's loss to Santa Cruz.

    Although he posted a rough shooting performance from three, Agbaji reached the 20-point mark thanks to a solid outing from inside the arc. He's averaging 3.3 points and 1.7 rebounds over 11.1 minutes per game.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: On G League assignment

    Agbaji was assigned to the G League on Tuesday, Sarah Todd of The Deseret News reports.

    Agbaji hasn't seen regular rotation minutes, mostly garnering time while starters were injured. He should pick up some valuable experience in the G League.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Scores seven points in 17 minutes

    Agbaji accumulated seven points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four rebounds and one assist across 18 minutes during Saturday's 124-123 win over the Grizzlies.

    Agbaji played meaningful minutes for the second straight game, although it did come with Mike Conley (rest) on the sideline. Based on what we saw prior to this, he could struggle to be an every-night part of the rotation, at least to begin the season.

  • Jazz's Ochai Agbaji: Traded to Jazz

    Agbaji was traded to Utah on Friday as part of the package for Donovan Mitchell, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

    Agbaji will be sent to Utah along with Lauri Markkanen, Colin Sexton, three unprotected first-round picks and two pick swaps. The 2022 No. 14 pick will be a nice three-and-D player for the Jazz, who have struggled with their perimeter defense in recent years. Agbaji will be a main part of the young core the Jazz are looking to rebuild with after trading away Rudy Gobert and Mitchell.

  • Cavaliers' Ochai Agbaji: Drafted No. 14 by Cleveland

    Agbaji was selected by the Cavaliers with the 14th overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.

    Agbaji averaged 18.8 points and 5.1 rebounds as a senior for Kansas en route to a 2022 National Championship. Joining a Cleveland team anchored by Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen with Darius Garland as the star, Agbaji settles into an important role as a three-point shooter and defender. He connected on 40.9 percent of his threes on 6.5 attempts per game with the Jayhawks in 2021-22.
