This Wednesday, Juwan Morgan has been officially signed by the Utah Jazz per a report released by the NBA team. The terms were not fully disclosed to his contract. Keith Smith of Yahoo! Sports noted that the deal is an Exhibit 10 contract.
Juwan played in two games for the Utah Jazz entry team at the 2019 Salt Lake City Summer League and in four games for the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. He averaged 6.8 points on 45.8% shooting in 17.3 minutes per game.
He was signed alongside Trevon Bluiett from Xavier who spent the last season on a two-way contract with the New Orleans Pelicans where he played 17 games for the Westchester Knicks in the NBA G League.
Exhibit 10 contracts are non-guaranteed deals that last a year for the NBA team. It allows them an option to waive the player and remove their cap hit from the team payroll. Juwan will earn a bonus between $5,000-$50,000 if waived from the NBA team and then be able to sign a deal with the G League affiliate for 60 days.
Juwan Morgan played for the Hoosiers over the past four years and will be a valuable asset for the Utah Jazz going forward. He finished his career ranked 8th all time in blocks (138), tenth in rebounds (757) and fourth in career field goal percentage (.562).
