In the hour before the Heat defeated Utah 107-104 at AmericanAirlines Arena, the Jazz traded point guard Dante Exum to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Jordan Clarkson. In the moments following that defeat, the Jazz waived forward Jeff Green, sources told The Athletic. And in the moments following that, the Jazz signed shooting guard Rayjon Tucker to a guaranteed deal for the remainder of the season. The flurry of moves can be traced to one constant, according to league sources: The Jazz have not been happy with their bench play.
Storyline: Jeff Green Free Agency
Tucker’s deal is guaranteed for the rest of this season, sources said. Several teams were in pursuit of Tucker in the wake of his G League season and a recent terrific performance at the G League Winter Showcase in Las Vegas. “Utah is getting a fantastic young man with a great work ethic and passion for the game,” Herd coach Chase Buford told ESPN. “Rayjon is an elite athlete who competes at a ridiculously high level every night. He’s a human highlight reel and a very exciting prospect for now and the future.”
