Trey Lyles, who missed Utah’s first two summer league games while waiting to sign his NBA contract, scored 10 points in his debut on Thursday night.
Lyles also had one rebound, one assist one steal in the Jazz’s 84-78 overtime victory against the Philadelphia 76ers.
"First time playing five-on-five in a long time, so it was fun," Lyles said during an interview with the media after the game. "First little bit I was out there I got first-game nerves, but after I got settled in it was fine."
He was 3-for-9 from the field and 4-for-6 from the free-throw line in 20-plus minutes.
Never miss a local story.
"He played well. He has really good feel. Things come easy to him," said Alex Jensen, Utah's summer league coach. "We'll just have to see it progress from here. That's the nice thing, he seemed like he was steady for a 19-year-old."
Utah will also be playing in the Las Vegas Summer League. Its first game will be at 10:30 p.m. ET on Saturday against the Miami Heat.
