Sources: Green, Mudiay to Jazz on 1-year deals

Free-agent forward Jeff Green[1] has agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million veterans minimum contract with the Utah Jazz[2], league sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

The Jazz also reached agreement with free-agent point guard Emmanuel Mudiay[3] on a one-year deal, sources told ESPN.

Green leaves the Washington Wizards[4] to join a significant group of reinforcements in Utah -- including Mike Conley Jr[5]. and free agent Bojan Bogdanovic[6] -- who will infuse talent into a core of Donovan Mitchell[7] and Rudy Gobert[8] to make the Jazz serious contenders in the Western Conference.

Green gives the Jazz a big, versatile, athletic wing player who can guard multiple positions and make shots. Green's career has been fortified with 60 playoff appearances with Oklahoma City[9], Boston[10], Memphis[11], the LA Clippers[12] and Cleveland[13] in his 12-year career.

Green, 32, averaged 12.3 points in 44 starts for the Wizards last season.

Mudiay, 23, will be playing for his third team since he was the No. 7 overall pick of the Denver Nuggets[14] in the 2015 draft. He averaged a career-best 14.8 points to go with 3.9 assists in 42 starts last season for the New York Knicks[15].

Mudiay and his agent, former NBA champion B.J. Armstrong, were sold on Utah's development system under coach Quin Snyder and the chance to play behind Conley.
