Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune reports the second year of the agreement is a non-guaranteed team option.
The 6-foot-1, 179-pound Neto, selected with 47th overall pick by the Atlanta Hawks in the 2013 NBA draft, averaged 4.5 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 12.1 minutes in 41 games (all off the bench) last season.
The 26-year-old shot 45.7 percent from the field and 40.4 percent from beyond the 3-point line.
Before the free-agency period tipped off, Utah general manager Dennis Lindsey told Jones his priority was to bring back the Jazz’s own free agents.
The Jazz guaranteed Thabo Sefolosha’s deal Sunday, re-signed forward Derrick Favors to a two-year deal Monday and brought back Dante Exum and Neto on Tuesday.
