Utah Jazz Re-Sign Former Top 5 NBA Draft Pick

It's not often that a player becomes a full-fledged crucial part of the rotation after signing a 10-day contract. But after back-to-back 10-days, Dunn has proven to be indispensable for the Jazz off the bench and has been re-signed to a standard contract.

Dunn's new deal will run through the rest of the season. He's completed two ten-day contracts, the maximum a team can offer before either releasing a player or signing him to a full contract. 

Since joining the Jazz, the 29-year-old (as of this week) Dunn has played in nine games, averaging  11.6 points, 4.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds in about 22 minutes per contest.

Dunn signed on February 22nd, and amidst injuries to Jordan Clarkson and Collin Sexton, immediately picked up some significant minutes for the Jazz, and never looked back. 

He's in his 7th NBA season, after being selected with the 5th overall pick in the 2016 Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Leg injuries derailed his career in the 2020-21 season, and he hasn't really been able to return to being an NBA contributor until these last twenty days with the Jazz.

His career marks stand at 8.3 points per game, 3.4 rebounds and 4.2 assists.
