Jazz Sign Taevion Kinsey To 10-Day Deal

MARCH 9: The Jazz have officially signed Kinsey to a 10-day deal, according to a release from the team.

MARCH 8: The Jazz are signing free agent guard Taevion Kinsey to a 10-day contract, agent Scott Nichols tells Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Kinsey, 23, went undrafted in June after playing five college seasons at Marshall. As a “super senior” for the Thundering Herd in 2022/23, he averaged 22.1 PPG, 5.4 APG, 4.9 RPG and 1.7 SPG on .542/.404/.744 shooting in 32 games (37.8 MPG), earning Sun Belt Player of the Year for his efforts.

A 6’5″ wing, Kinsey signed a training camp deal with Utah last summer and was waived before the ’23/24 season began. He’s been playing for the Jazz’s G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, averaging 10.2 PPG, 3.3 RPG and 1.9 APG on .558/.468/.840 shooting in 25 regular season games (28.7 MPG).

As our tracker shows, the Jazz have an opening on their standard roster, so they won’t have to release anyone to sign Kinsey, who will earn $64,343 on the 10-day contract in addition to his NBAGL salary.
