SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz have signed guard Romeo Langford, Taevion Kinsey, and Nick Ongenda the team announced.

Langford is a former 2019 first round pick by Jazz CEO Danny Ainge when he was overseeing the Boston Celtics front office.

The guard spent two and a half seasons in Boston before he was traded to the San Antonio Spurs along with Josh Richardson for Derrick White.

Over his four-year NBA career, the 23-year-old is averaging 4.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 0.7 assists while shooting 43 percent from the floor and 28 percent from three.

Kinsey, a 6-foot-5 guard played for the Jazz during the Salt Lake City and Las Vegas Summer leagues.

The Marshall product averaged 17.1 points and 4.9 rebounds during his time in college.

Ongenda also played for the Jazz during the summer league. The center averaged 5.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game at DePaul.

Jazz Roster Sits at 18 Players

With the Langford, Kinsey, and Ongenda signings official, the Jazz roster sits at 18 players, more than the maximum allowable 15 that can be on the team on opening night.

During the offseason and training camp, NBA teams can carry larger rosters before trimming them down ahead of the regular season.
