David Pick of Eurobasket.com has confirmed a report first made by Aaron Falk and Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, that German center Tibor Pleiss (acquired in the Enes Kanter trade) will be making his way to Utah this season.
Tibor Pleiss - whose rights were traded from OKC to Utah - is working on a deal to join the Jazz, a source said.

The move helps address a lack of depth at the C position with the departure of Kanter last week. Specific details about the deal are not yet available, and most likely won't be disclosed until it is officially announced. Most expected Pleiss, who has been unhappy with his playing time behind another Barcelona big man and Jazz prospect Ante Tomic, to move to the Jazz during the offseason.
