SALT LAKE CITY – A group of Utah Jazz players caught up with one of their former teammates in Joe Ingles before taking on the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Blazers are set to host the Jazz at Moda Center on Sunday, April 10.

Before the game, Jordan Clarkson, Mike Conley, and Rudy Gay spent time catching up with Ingles.

The Jazz traded Ingles to the Trail Blazers in February. The trade came after Ingles’ suffered a season-ending knee injury.

Before getting traded to Portland, Ingles played the first seven and a half seasons of his NBA career with the Jazz.

Utah first acquired Ingles after the Los Angeles Clippers waived the forward before the start of the 2014-15 season.

The Australian native rose from a waiver pickup to a rotation player before becoming a starter for Utah. He quickly became a fan favorite and was beloved by Jazz nation. During the past few seasons, Ingles had been a key bench player for the Jazz and was the runner-up to former teammate Jordan Clarkson for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award in 2020-21.

Before suffering the knee injury, Ingles was averaging 7.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per contest in 45 games played for the Jazz.

During his time in Utah, Ingles recorded an average of 8.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.2 blocks, and 0.9 steals per game. He played in 590 games for the Jazz, including 313 starts.

Utah’s game against Portland will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet, NBA League Pass, and The Zone Sports Network.
