The Jazz are expected to exercise their player option on Shelvin Mack for the 2016-17 season.
The Scoop: Mack played well for the Jazz after a mid-season trade with the Hawks, averaging 12.7 points, 5.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 0.9 steals, 1.3 3-pointers and 2.9 turnovers. He said that he's unsure of what his role will be wih Dante Exum (knee) coming back, but he said he's ready to compete for playing time. "It's not something that I've thought that much about," Mack said. "I know that Dante's a great player and the organization has a lot invested in him. I'm ready to compete, but I have to control the things I can control." When asked what he wants to improve on this summer, Mack said he wants to be a better spot-up shooter.
