Isaiah Briscoe to work out for the Jazz today

Adam Zagoria is reporting that Isaiah Briscoe will work out for the Utah Jazz at some point today and the Los Angeles Lakers tomorrow. This is another development in Briscoe’s draft stock. When he first entered the NBA Draft, he wasn’t on any of the major NBA Mock Drafts. While he still hasn’t hit that point, he has been getting more workouts in the past few weeks. Recently, he has worked out for the New York Knicks, Philadelphia 76ers and the Chicago Bulls.

For Briscoe, the best case scenario will probably be to go undrafted. This will give him the opportunity to choose his own team and in turn hopefully choose the situation that will be best for him to prove himself in the NBA Summer League. Briscoe may go down as one of the more frustrating players of the Calipari era, but once a Cat always a Cat. Good luck to Isaiah!

    What was frustrating about Briscoe?? Dude gave it his all every game, while always playing out of position.

    “For Briscoe, the best case scenario will probably be to go undrafted”.

    Kind of a stupid statement, don’t you think?

      No, it is 100% on the money, & here is why. I think we can all agree Briscoe is not a first round pick. Second round draft picks are not guaranteed a roster spot nor any contract whatsoever, but the team drafting them holds their rights. He could go 2nd round to a guard heavy team w no room on their roster, and get cut if he shows no usefulness during training camp. By going undrafted, you can go to an organization that could use you now, but hasn’t got a draft pickt o spend on you. Better chance to stay around and earn a roster spot. Seams counterintuitive, but more undrafted free agents are in the league after 3 ys than 2nd round picks.

    “Briscoe may go down as one of the more frustrating players of the Calipari era.” I think the vast majority of the BBN would disagree with this sentiment.

    Interesting. Didn’t know the Jazz were in the market for a 6’2 center.

    Most frustrating in the Cal Era will belong to Skal or Archie, imo. Followed by a perpetually underachieving Alex Poythress.

      100% spot on. In my eyes there was never any question of Briscoe’s effort or will to win. Skal and Alex just seemed to go through the motions more often than not. Archie did seem to try hard but when your only move is a spin in the lane and your coaches don’t make you stop doing it there just isn’t much good that is going to come of that.
