I believe he can. He has untapped potential and can be a good PG in this league.

Avery is still young enough to become good which is always a plus, Anthony Carter is starting to get old (27 or 28) much more difficult to get better at that age. I would rather sign Hudson from the Magic.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are FREAKING OUT about their point guard situation. Now DON'T YOU THINK, if William Avery had a shot at being a good NBA point guard, that the T-Wolves would've re-signed the guy? Which team in this league has seen Avery play more than Minnesota has? Answer: NO TEAM.

Although Avery sure could fill it up back at Duke--I wonder if he would be a solid NBA player right now if he hadn't left early?

If he is willing to sign for minimum he could be the third point guard on the Jazz. They will sign a cheap PG to play in practice but sit on the bench except in dire emergencies.

Now THERE is the future of William Avery in this league--#3 PG and practice player! PERIOD!

The last thing that Avery wants to do is sit on the bench so he is not going to sign somewhere to be a 3rd string pg. He wants a chance to prove himself somewhere.

I understand he was the best of the PG on the Jazz summer squad. He ran the team and offense better than the others. As the jwillbulls8 said the concern about him is his height. The Jazz have an open roster spot for a third PG and the guys on the summer league team have a good shot at that spot. They like to limit Stockton's practice time so they usually carry three PGs. Lopez will be the backup and get the bulk of the game minutes. The third PG will play in practice mainly and may get some game time when Stockton or Lopez are hurt or in foul trouble. It is possible they will go with a combo guard like Charlie Bell who could play some SG also.

Avery is another example of why you dont leave school early.

Much less why did he leave when he could have gotten another national championship and be coached by the best coach in College basketball for another year.

Just plain stupid IMO

A few years back I would of said the Knicks should sign Avery because he was a great college player. Even with the point guard situation in New York now, I still don't think the Kincks should sign William Avery because he has not been able to prove himself as a reliable backup point guard in the few years he has been in this league.
