According to Tony Jones, the Utah Jazz have signed Michigan State forward Joey Hauser to a two-way contract.

The 6’9” forward was a sharpshooter at Michigan State for four years. In his final season, he averaged 14.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 1.8 assists. He shot 48.4% from the field and 46.1% from three. That type of shooting will always get you noticed, and when you consider his size, this is a nice player to have on a two-way contract.

With the draft behind them, the Jazz are now loaded with young talent, and players will need to show their mettle to get minutes on the floor. It’s very likely Hauser plays a lot of minutes for the Jazz in summer league and on the practice squad as the season draws near. Those minutes are invaluable for both Hauser, but also the Jazz, as they prepare for the upcoming season.
