Jazz Sign Naz Mitrou-Long

The Jazz have signed rookie free agent Naz Mitrou-Long to their 20-man offseason roster, according to RealGM’s log of official NBA transactions. While details of the agreement haven’t been reported, it figures to be a non-guaranteed camp deal.

A 6’4″ guard out of Iowa State, Mitrou-Long appeared in 35 games during his senior year in 2016/17, averaging 15.1 PPG, 4.6 RPG, and 2.7 APG. More than half his shot attempts came from beyond the three-point line, and he was effective from outside the arc, making 2.8 threes per game at a 38.4% clip.

Although he went undrafted in June, Mitrou-Long caught on with a pair of NBA teams in July, playing for the Pacers in the Orlando Summer League and the Kings in Las Vegas.

Mitrou-Long isn’t likely to crack the regular season roster for the Jazz, since the club already has 15 players on guaranteed salaries. However, there’s a good chance the Canadian-born guard will end up as an affiliate player for the Salt Lake City Stars, Utah’s G League squad.
