Jazz agree to sign Emmanuel Mudiay
The organization also agreed to sign former New York Knick Emmanuel Mudiay according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
As @espn_macmahon says, Mudiay’s development stands to continue an upward trajectory with coach Quin Snyder and Mike Conley Jr. The Jazz program is significant reason why Mudiay’s agent, BJ Armstrong, believed Utah’s such a good fit for his 23-year-old client. https://t.co/0QMQmMVXVC
