Utah Jazz, Rudy Gay agree to 2-year deal in NBA free agency

Free-agent forward Rudy Gay has agreed to a free-agent deal with the Utah Jazz, his agent, Raymond Brothers of Roc Nation Sports, told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Tuesday.

The two-year deal includes a player option and reunites Gay with point guard Mike Conley. The two played together for the Memphis Grizzlies for over five seasons.

Gay spent the past four years with the San Antonio Spurs and averaged 11.4 points and shot 38.1% on 3-pointers in a reserve role last season.

The 34-year-old is entering his 16th season in the NBA, with previous stops in Toronto and Sacramento as well as Memphis and San Antonio.

Free-agent center Hassan Whiteside also has agreed to a deal with the Jazz, his agent, Sean Kennedy of Excel Basketball, told Wojnarowski.

Whiteside has spent the past two seasons in the Western Conference with Sacramento and Portland and remains a force in the paint. His addition gives Utah big man Rudy Gobert another dependable, experienced center behind him following the trade of Derrick Favors to Oklahoma City.
