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.
Too bad Joe Ingles wasn’t actually Courtside for this. Had he been shown on the monitors this place would have erupted! #TakeNote #JazzLoveJoe @kslsports pic.twitter.com/6k8Es80dm9
