Utah Jazz sign forward Royce O'Neale
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Jazz signed forward Royce O'Neale on Wednesday.
Contract details were not released.
The 6-foot-6, 215-pound wing played for Gran Canaria in Spain last season and averaged 8.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists. O'Neale was a member of the New Orleans Pelicans' Las Vegas Summer League team last week and averaged 4.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
The 24-year-old was undrafted out of Baylor in 2015. He adds wing depth to a Jazz team adjusting to life without Gordon Hayward after he signed with the Boston Celtics in free agency.
The Jazz won 51 games last season and reached the playoffs for the first time since 2012. They were swept by the Golden State Warriors after beating the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round.
