Tony Bradley, the Utah Jazz’s first round draft pick, visited Carbon and Emery counties on Tuesday to host youth skills clinics and meet local fans.

Bradley’s first stop in the local area was at the BDAC on the USU Eastern Campus. Carbon County Recreation headed the event’s organization as youth gathered at the university to take part. Bradley and Utah Jazz staff members then made their way to Emery County where they hosted a similar event in Orangeville in conjunction with Emery County Recreation.

Each event included a short skills clinic for area youth where Bradley and the staff led players through drills and various activities. Following the clinics, Bradley was on hand to sign autographs and take photos with fans.

Bradley is a 6’11” power forward/center that was selected in the first round, #28, in the 2017 NBA Draft. Originally from Florida, Bradley played college basketball at the University of North Carolina. Just this summer, he averaged 10.6 points, 6.6 rebounds and 2 blocks per game in the NBA Summer League.
