Reports: Jazz to sign Williams-Goss from EuropeReuters | Updated: 14-07-2019 01:21 IST | Created: 14-07-2019 01:20 IST
The Utah Jazz is bringing in former second-round pick Nigel Williams-Goss on a three-year contract, according to multiple reports Saturday. Williams-Goss, who turns 25 in September, has played the past two seasons in Europe after the Jazz made him the 55th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft after he helped Gonzaga reach the national championship game against North Carolina. Williams-Goss played last season for Olympiacos Piraeus of the Greek Basketball League, averaging 9.2 points and 4.2 assists, and shooting 37.0 percent from 3-point range.
Williams-Goss, who projects as a back-of-the-roster combo guard for the Jazz, will have a guaranteed contract next season, according to Eurohoops.net. The Jazz will pay the Greek club $1 million to release Williams-Goss. In his first professional season, Williams-Goss helped BC Partizan Belgrade win the 2018 Serbian National Cup.
