    Sticking the D league with these players seems as if the Stars will be really good this season. They have not shown much in the past. Will this season be a winner?

    I disagree. It would take two Jazz guards going down for Trey Lewis to get a shot at playing.

    Even if Rubio went down with an injury, the team would still have Exum, Mitchell, and Neto who can play the point. When you consider that Ingles and Burks can also man the point guard position, Trey Lewis' chances of playing for the Jazz this year are slim at best.

    "Lewis is unlikely to play for the Jazz during the regular season. Though you might see him play a few minutes in the preseason games."

    It would just take one injury to a point guard, and he would be on the roster. Remember Ricky Rubio last year?

    It can't be anything but a training camp deal.

    Why? Because there aren't any spots left on the team and the Jazz don't need another point guard. By signing Trey, they are allowed to keep his G-League rights even after they waive him. If everything works out, he will end up playing for the Salt Lake City Stars.

    The Jazz can have up to 20 players in training camp. By signing Lewis, they filled that final spot.

    Lewis is unlikely to play for the Jazz during the regular season. Though you might see him play a few minutes in the preseason games.

    Some details of the contract would be good.

    Trey Lewis is a 6' 2" 185-pound point guard.

    Yes, the Jazz has a full roster. Trey will most likely end up playing for the Jazz G-League affiliate — the Stars.

    I thought the Jazz had a full roster? If so, will Lewis or somebody else be sent to the G-league team? Two thought: First, competition is always good, and this will help players from becoming complacent. Second, with the excellent coaching staff, and how well they develop their players, anything can happen.

    I would like to know Lewis' size and what position he plays.
