Forrest, 23, initially signed a two-way deal with Utah last November after going undrafted out of Florida State. The 6’4″ guard appeared in 30 games for the team as a rookie, averaging 2.9 PPG, 1.5 APG, and 1.5 RPG in 10.1 minutes per contest.
Prior to free agency, the Jazz issued qualifying offers to both of their two-way players, Forrest and Jarrell Brantley. Because Brantley had spent two seasons on a two-way contract with Utah, his qualifying offer – which he accepted – was equivalent to a one-year, minimum-salary deal with a partial guarantee. Forrest’s was for another two-way deal, so it’s possible he just accepted that QO rather than negotiating a new two-way agreement.
As our two-way contract tracker shows, the Jazz still have one open two-way slot with Forrest back in the fold.
