Former Wisconsin big man Micah Potter lands with new NBA team
Micha Potter reportedly has a new NBA home. Potter and the Utah Jazz have inked a 2-way deal, according to The Athletic insider Shams Charania.
Potter spent his first two collegiate years with Ohio State before transferring to Wisconsin for two years and making the jump to the NBA. As a senior, he averaged 12.5 points and 6 rebounds but went undrafted.
Potter spent most of last season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, averaging a solid 17 points and 10 rebounds. He was able to get some NBA action for the Detroit Pistons, where he appeared in 3 games and averaged 4 points and 3 rebounds.
The Jazz are beginning life without star big man Rudy Gobert, which puts the former Wisconsin big in an ideal situation receive a considerable amount of playing time to prove himself.
