Utah Basketball: Runnin' Utes pick up transfer guard Tim Coleman

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Coach Larry Krystkowiak continues to tweak his team for the 2016-17 season, as the Runnin' Utes will be adding a 6-foot 1-inch guard from Lee College, Tim Coleman. Coleman averaged 14.5 points per game, 3.8 rebounds and 3.9 assist per game. However, his shooting percentage isn't blowing my hair back, as he only shot 36.5% from the field, 30.7% from the three point line, and only 62.3% from the free throw line.

This is an interesting pick up for the Utes, and to be frank, I don't know a ton about this kid. Utah's lineup for this next season will be night and day different from this past one, so many roles are up for grabs. Just on the surface level, it seems like Coleman may be a role player, and possibly not a main contibutor, especially with some of the incoming talent coming to campus. I say that primarily just looking at his shooting percentages, because Utah can't afford to have a guard line that can't shoot.

What are some of your thoughts on the new addition?
