EuroLeague Final Four MVP heads to NBA, joins Utah Jazz

EuroLeague Final Four MVP Ekpe Udoh has agreed a two-year, $6.5 million deal with the Utah Jazz, it has been confirmed.

The report, first made by SDNA sends another of the premier EuroLeague players to the NBA this summer as Udoh joins Milos Teodosic, Bogdan Bogdanovic and Mike James as Europe’s leavers.

The player had a NBA out in his contract with Fenerbahce, which Utah have capitalised on.

Udoh had an incredible EuroLeague campaign last season, as he averaged 14 points, 10.5 rebounds, six assists and 3.5 blocks with the reigning champions.

The 30-year-old has previous NBA experience, having had spells with the Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks and more recently the Los Angeles Clippers before his move to Turkey.
