The Greek-American guard averaged 8.0 points, 3.3 assists and 3 rebounds per game in 20 minutes per game in Las Vegas. The 24-year-old had previously signed a two-way deal with the Jazz in 2017, spending the majority of the time with the Jazz’s G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars.
“I’m just happy that the Jazz were so patient with me and just kept contributing to the fact that they wanted to see me grow,” the 6-foot-4, 209-pound Mitrou-Long told Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News.
Mitrou-Long averaged 18 points, 6.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game for Salt Lake City in the G League last season.
The Iowa State product appeared in one game for the Jazz last season, playing one minute and making the only shot he took, a 3-pointer.
