SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Utah Jazz have agreed to terms with free agent forward Jeff Green.

Reports indicate that Green will sign a one-year, $2.5 million contract.

The deal cannot be completed until July 6 when the new league year begins.

Green spent the 2018-19 season with the Washington Wizards, where he averaged 12.3 points, 4 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game, while shooting 47 percent from the field, including 34 percent from the three-point line.

He was selected as the fifth overall pick by the Boston Celtics in the 2007 NBA Draft, but was traded to the Seattle Supersonics. Green played in Seattle for their final season before moving to Oklahoma City. After two and a half seasons with OKC, Green was traded to the Boston Celtics, where he played three and a half seasons.

He did not play during the 2011-12 season as he was dealing with a heart condition.

The Celtics traded him during the 2014-15 campaign to the Memphis Grizzlies, who traded the Georgetown product to the Los Angeles Clippers.

Green spent the next three seasons with three different teams that include the Orlando Magic, Cleveland Cavaliers and the Wizards. He played in the 2018 NBA Finals with the Cavaliers.

Throughout his 11 year career, Green has averaged 13.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists.

Green will bring his veteran leadership and could very well start as the power forward for the Jazz this upcoming season.

That would put Joe Ingles, Dante Exum and Royce O’Neale as the bench depth for Utah. The Jazz will also acquire Mike Conley in a trade that will be official on Saturday as well as signing Bojan Bogdanovic and Ed Davis in free agency.
