The Utah Jazz have signed free agent point guard Mike Scott to a one-year contract, according to Nicola Lupo of Sportando.

Scott is 6-foot-1 and spent last season playing in Poland. He went undrafted out of the University of Idaho in 2016.

Scott’s deal is likely an Exhibit 10 contract, as he is likely headed to the G League should he remain in the U.S.

The Jazz are already loaded at point guard. Mike Conley Jr., Donovan Mitchell, Dante Exum, Emmanuel Mudiay and Nigel Williams-Goss are all capable of manning the position.

Basically, the Jazz could be signing Scott for the sole purpose of locking him down for their G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars.
