Royce O’Neale Rumors
The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has signed forward Royce O’Neale. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. O’Neale (6-6, 215, Baylor) played for Gran Canaria in Spain during the 2016-17 season, averaging 8.3 points on 44.9 percent shooting, 5.2 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 20.6 minutes in 52 games (32 starts). O’Neale ranked in the top five for ACB small forwards in both rebound percentage and assist percentage, and was also among the league leaders in defensive rating.
Jody Genessy: Can confirm that the Jazz will sign Royce O’Neale to a three-year deal (one fully guaranteed) and Eric Griffin to a two-way contract.
If O’Neale’s contract is indeed as reported, the Jazz will either have to waive one player or pull off a trade to have him on the roster when the NBA season starts in October.
