The Jazz have signed Elijah Millsap to a second 10-day contract, the team announced. The first one expired Wednesday night. Utah will have to make a decision about whether to keep the 27-year-old for the rest of the season or let him go once his newest deal expires, since NBA teams can only ink any one player to two 10-day deals per season. Still, it would be quite a surprise if the Jazz don’t keep him for the balance of 2014/15, as Jody Genessy of the Deseret News believes (Twitter link).
The Daniel Hazan client saw plenty of action during his first 10 days with Utah, averaging 5.6 points and 2.8 rebounds in 24.0 minutes per game across five contests. He’d been playing with the D-League affiliate of the Suns prior to joining the Jazz, and he was with the Bucks during the preseason. The younger brother of former Jazz forward Paul Millsap spoke with Zach Links of Hoops Rumors in September as he embarked on his quest to make an NBA roster.
