Utah Jazz sign three free-agent deals following NBA Draft

SALT LAKE CITY — While the Utah Jazz went through an entire NBA Draft without making a draft selection for the first time since 1992, the franchise was still able to sign a few free-agent deals with several rookie prospects.

Undrafted UCLA prospect Johnny Juzang agreed to a two-way deal with the Utah Jazz late last night after the draft. The 6-foot-6 guard played two seasons for the Bruins after a short time with the Kentucky Wildcats where he struggled to see the floor as a freshman.

After transferring to UCLA as a sophomore, Juzang lead the Bruins to an NCAA tournament Final Four appearance and in his junior year earned first-team All-Pac 12 honors, averaging 15.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game while shooting 43.2% from the floor.

As for the other two signings, The Jazz agreed to two exhibit-10 deals with Georgia Tech wing Jordan Usher and Illinois center Kofi Cockburn. This last season, Usher averaged 14.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists for the Yellow Jackets while Cockburn posted an impressive 20.9 points and 10.6 rebounds for the Fighting Illini.
