Scott, 24, went undrafted last month after spending his four-year college career at Cincinnati. As a senior in 2019/20, he averaged 11.4 PPG and 10.5 RPG in 30 games (33.7 MPG), earning Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved Player honors in the American Athletic Conference.
While the terms of Scott’s deal weren’t reported, this will almost certainly be an Exhibit 10 contract that sets him up to join Utah’s G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, once he’s waived by the Jazz. Depending on how the NBAGL season plays out, he could be in line to earn a $50K bonus as a member of the Stars.
The Jazz now have a full 20-man roster and will have to make at least three cuts before next Monday’s regular season roster deadline. Scott, Romaro Gill, Jake Toolson, and Trevon Bluiett look like the probable odd men out.
