Jazz Sign Free Agent Forward

The Utah Jazz will have another small forward on hand to compete for a spot during training camp. The team has signed free-agent Paris Bass to an Exhibit 10 contract.

Bass went undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft. A 6'8" forward, he suited up for two games with the Phoenix Suns this past season on a 10-day hardship contract. He scored six points with four rebounds in just seven total minutes. 

He's played mostly internationally since turning pro, but he did spend some time with the South Bay Lakers in the G League this past season, where he averaged an impressive 17.9 points and 8.4 rebounds. 

He also suited up with the Lakers' Summer League team in Las Vegas this year. 

Over the 2018 to 2021 period, he was a literal "globetrotter", playing internationally in the Dominican, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, and Colombia.
