Former IU basketball one-and-done star Romeo Langford has signed a contract with the Utah Jazz, according to a report by Tony Jones and Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The Jazz later confirmed the report.
Most recently with the San Antonio Spurs, Langford was a free agent following the 2022-23 season.
The deal is an Exhibit 10 contract for the former Celtics lottery pick.
Over his four-year NBA career, the 23-year-old is averaging 4.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 0.7 assists while shooting 43 percent from the floor and 28 percent from three.
An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, minimum-salary deal that allows the Jazz to convert the contract to a two-way contract as long as that change is made before the start of the regular season.
The Jazz would also own Langford’s G League rights if he’s waived by the organization.
Last season with the Spurs, Langford averaged a career-best 6.9 points on 46.7 percent from the field, along with 2.7 boards, and 1.2 assists in 43 games (21 starts).
Drafted with the 14th overall pick in the first round of the 2019 NBA Draft, the New Albany, Ind., native played one season at Indiana (2018-19), where he ranked first among freshmen in the conference and fifth nationally with 16.5 points per contest.
Following his sole collegiate season, he was named to the 2018-19 All-Big Ten Second Team and All-Big Ten Freshman Team.
