Elijah Millsap RumorsAll NBA Players
The Jazz entered training camp with 13 players – two below the regular-season roster limit – with guaranteed salaries. That seemingly made it unlikely three Utah players who belong in the NBA – Jeff Withey ($200,000 guaranteed), Elijah Millsap (unguaranteed) and Bryce Cotton (unguaranteed) – would all survive the preseason. But the Jazz cleared a spot by waiving Grant Jerrett, whose minimum salary was fully guaranteed fro this season.
While he wasn’t their first client, Daniel and his team got in touch with Elijah Millsap, who was playing overseas at the time. After he signed with Hazan Sports, they began pushing for him to get on a D-League team. They were trying to get him on the Philadelphia 76ers Summer League team. Although the team showed interest in Millsap, they did not get the spot they were hoping for.
The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has signed guard/forward Elijah Millsap to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, financial terms were not released. Millsap signed the first of two 10-day contracts with the Jazz on Jan. 5 and has appeared in 10 Jazz games since, averaging 5.7 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 20.4 minutes.
