RUMOR: Jazz expected to sign at least 1 more player before making Ed Davis, Emmanuel Mudiay, Jeff Green signings official
The Utah Jazz aren’t done retooling their roster, and they are reportedly looking to make at least one more deal before officially signing their free agent acquisitions Ed Davis, Emmanuel Mudiay and Jeff Green.
According to Tony Jones of The Athletic, the Jazz are delaying the signings of Davis, Mudiay and Jeff Green as they rework the back end of their roster. Utah could also possibly add two players to their lineup before finalizing their offseason moves.
League sources: signings of Ed Davis, Jeff Green and Emmanuel Mudiay will still be a bit delayed because the Jazz are not finished reworking the back end of the roster. Expect the jazz to sign at least one more player and very possibly two

The Jazz have already signed Bojan Bogdanovic, so the official signings of their new players aren’t expected to be delayed for long.
Davis agreed to a two-year, $10 million deal with the Jazz after one season with the Brooklyn Nets. On the other hand, Mudiay reached a one-year deal to play for the Salt Lake City team after the New York Knicks let him walk away.
Green, meanwhile, settled for a one-year, minimum deal worth $2.5 million. The veteran forward is playing in his fourth team in as many years, having suited up for the Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers and Washington Wizards in the past three seasons.
It remains to be seen which players the Jazz are targeting, but there’s no doubt they have already been successful this July. After trading for Mike Conley before the 2019 draft, they have now built a roster which many believe is a legitimate title contender.
