Kris Dunn has been very good for the Utah Jazz through two 10-day contracts, and he is getting rewarded for his efforts.
On Tuesday, The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Tony Jones reported that the Jazz are going to sign Dunn for the remainder of the season.
Teams are only allowed to sign players to two 10-day contracts, and then they must either sign them for the rest of the season or lose them.
The Deseret News’ Sarah Todd later confirmed that the deal will be a multiyear contract, although it is nonguaranteed beyond this season, and the team formally announced the transaction Tuesday afternoon.
The decision to keep the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Dunn through the rest of the season doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as Dunn has averaged 11.6 points, 4.8 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals in 22.2 minutes per game over nine contests since joining the Jazz out of the NBA G League in February.
In essence, he’s been the type of player he was expected to be when he was taken fifth overall in the 2016 NBA draft out of Providence.
