Jazz Sign Jarrell Brantley To 10-Day Contract

The Jazz have officially signed forward Jarrell Brantley to a 10-day contract, the team announced today in a press release.

The move represents a reunion for the two sides, as Brantley spent his first two professional seasons with the Jazz from 2019-21 after being selected 50th overall in the 2019 draft out of Charleston. He was waived in September 2021 and has since played in Russia, Puerto Rico, and New Zealand in addition to the G League.

While Brantley excelled at the NBAGL level for the Salt Lake City Stars, he didn’t see a ton of action in the NBA during his two years in Utah. He appeared in a total of 37 contests, averaging 2.4 points and 1.3 rebounds in just 6.3 minutes per contest.

As a member of the New Zealand Breakers in Australia’s National Basketball League this season, Brantley started all 39 games he played for the team, putting up 15.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, and 1.5 steals in 28.7 minutes per night.

A roster move had been required today for the Jazz, who had been carrying just 13 players on their standard roster since Frank Jackson‘s 10-day deal expired on March 4. NBA teams can dip below the league-mandated minimum of 14 players on standard contracts, but only for up to two weeks at a time. Utah has now once again reached that 14-player minimum, with one open spot left on their roster.

Brantley’s salary and cap hit on his 10-day deal will be $105,522, as our chart shows. The contract will run through Monday, March 27, covering the Jazz’s next six games. Once it expires, he would be eligible to sign a second 10-day deal with Utah before the team would have to make a decision on whether to let him walk or sign him for the rest of the season.
