Jazz sign rookie Trey Lyles
SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz signed 2015 first-round pick Trey Lyles to a contract, ending his holdout with the team. The Jazz did not release the terms of the team, but it should be in the range of four years, worth $10.4 million with a team option on the final two years of the contract.
Lyles was with the Jazz for a press conference the day after the Jazz selected him with the 14th pick in the NBA draft, but he was not with the team during summer league practices and the first game.
Lyles spent one season at Kentucky. The 19-year-old forward was named to the 2015 All-SEC Freshman Team and helped lead the Wildcats to a 2015 NCAA Final Four appearance.
