5:35pm: The team announced the move.
Pressey’s deal with the Blazers was non-guaranteed. Pressey, 24, who signed with Portland shortly after the Celtics waived him this summer, averaged 4.8 points, 2.0 assists and 1.0 turnover in 16.4 minutes per game across four preseason appearances.
Pressey has been viewed by many as a natural point guard with good passing instincts, but he is not considered a good shooter. The Jazz currently have 15 players on the roster, the allowed maximum by opening night. Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune tweets that it seems like the move is to secure Pressey’s D-League rights.
