Randy Foye Hopes For Long-Term Stay With Jazz

Although he only signed a one-year contract with the Jazz last summer, Randy Foye wouldn't mind extending his stay in Utah. Foye tells Bill Oram of the Salt Lake Tribune that he can picture a long-term future for himself with the Jazz.

"To tell you the truth I do see myself long-term here," Foye said. "Because everything from an organization, to the values they have here is me. And in the beginning I probably never would have thought it was Utah, probably thought I was a big-city guy. But this is me. I got my family here, my family really likes it here — even when my friends come out they really like it."

While Foye is playing for his fourth team in seven NBA seasons, the 29-year-old's production has remained remarkably consistent. Many of Foye's numbers for the Jazz this season (11.9 PPG, 13.1 PER, .416 FG%) are virtually identical to his career numbers (11.6 PPG, 13.2 PER, .412 FG%). With his $2.5MM deal set to expire at season's end, Foye is hoping to re-sign with the Jazz in July, but isn't thinking too much about his contract situation at the moment.

"I love the guys here," Foye said. "I know the guys, we get along really well. I just picture myself being here for a while. I don't really want to talk about contract things, but I just picture I would want to be here for a long time."
