Ingles re-signs with Jazz

Australian Joe Ingles has re-signed with the Utah Jazz, signing a four-year, $US52 million deal with the franchise.

Ingles, who joined the Jazz in 2014, said it was an easy decision to re-sign.

“I wanted to be in Utah, no matter what,” Ingles said.

“If you have every All-Star in the world or no All-Stars in the world. It’s the place that’s gotten me to where I am, it’s gotten me to be the player I am today.

“If we were a 10-win team or an 80-win team, I feel like Utah is the place for me to be good and really help the team.

“It’s exciting, I’m really excited for the season and to get back there and get started.”

It’s official! ✔️✔️✔️
