Utah Jazz Likely to Sign Sundiata Gaines for Season
But the Jazz certainly seemed inclined Saturday to sign rookie point guard Sundiata Gaines for the rest of the season, a decision that must be made because his second 10-day contract expires after today.
"He’s carried himself well," general manager Kevin O’Connor said.
"He’s done a good job in practice trying to learn what we’re trying to do," Coach Jerry Sloan added, "and we like what he’s done so far."
Teammates have taken a liking to him, too.
"I think he’s done a great job," starting point guard Deron Williams said. "He’s coach’s type of guy — he doesn’t say much, he works hard."
