A surprising move that fills out the roster

According to Shams Charania the Utah Jazz have signed free agent guard Yogi Ferrell.

Ferrell is an undersized guard that can score the ball. He’s a career 36% three-point shooter that saw a downtick in his shooting percentage last season.

This comes as a bit of a surprise for Utah who looks to have filled out their roster nicely with a mix of young and veteran talent that mixes together nicely. Most likely this is a move to provide depth and security for Utah with a shortened season coming that will surely see a mix of injuries and rests for players, especially with the return of a season that will have multiple times where the Jazz will play four games in five nights.

It’s possible the Jazz are looking to fill out their G-League roster as well as the G-League will be starting soon.

Whatever this means, at worst it provides depth for a team that is gunning for as high a seed in the playoffs as possible.
