The Jazz are negotiating with him and his camp on an extension. But if one isn’t reached during the next two weeks — and at the moment that seems a bit of a long shot — then Kanter will head into restricted free agency next summer.

The two Utah players were invited to participate in a five-minute segment featuring JP Gibson, the 5-year-old with leukemia who signed a one-day contract with the Jazz last week. The family didn't know the players were going to surprise them and be part of the show, which aired Thursday afternoon. Deseret News
