Niang lands 2-year deal with the Utah Jazz

Congrats to Georges Niang!

The Iowa State legend has been fantastic in the NBA’s Summer League and was rewarded for it on Friday night via a 2-year contract from the Utah Jazz.

Niang spent the majority of last season in the G-League with Utah’s program. In that time, he averaged 19.7 points per game, shot 46 percent from 3-point range and was an all-star.

Niang has averaged 15 points and 6 rebounds per game during the NBA Summer League over the last few weeks.
