Stanton Kidd Signs With Australian Team

Former Jazz forward Stanton Kidd has signed with Melbourne United, the team announced on Friday (Twitter link). The club is part of Australia’s National Basketball League.

Kidd, who finished his college career at Colorado State in 2015, has mostly played international ball since then, spending time with teams in Belgium, Germany, and Turkey. The 27-year-old made his NBA debut this fall after signing a partially guaranteed contract with the Jazz in the offseason, appearing in a total of 15 minutes across four games for Utah.

When Utah signed Juwan Morgan last month, Kidd was the odd man out and was placed on waivers to open up a roster spot. He had been a free agent since then, but is now on track to finish the 2019/20 season in Melbourne.
