Utah Jazz sign shooting guard Randy Foye, source says

The Jazz have signed veteran shooting guard Randy Foye to a one-year deal, a league source informed The Salt Lake Tribune late Monday.

ESPN's Ric Bucher first reported the signing.

A message left for Utah General Manager Kevin O'Connor was not immediately returned late Monday.

Foye, 28, averaged 11 points and 2.2 assists in 65 games (48 starts) for the Los Angeles Clippers during the 2011-12 season, playing alongside newly acquired Utah point guard Mo Williams. Foye shot 39.8 percent from the field last season and 38.6 percent behind the 3-point line, helping guide Los Angeles to the Western Conference semifinals.

The 6-foot-4, 213-pound Foye was the No. 7 overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. The former Villanova standout has averaged 11.6 points on 41.1 percent shooting from the floor during his six-year career.

Foye is expected to compete with second-year small forward Gordon Hayward, second-year guard Alec Burks and rookie Kevin Murphy for playing time in 2012-13.

Veteran Raja Bell was the Jazz's primary starter at shooting guard last season. Bell recently agreed to a buyout with Utah, though, and the Jazz entered free agency seeking to add depth at the wing positions.

Foye made $4.2 million with the Clippers last season. He'll likely be added via Utah's mid-level exception, which is worth $5 million. Foye's deal with the Jazz is reportedly worth $2.5 million, keeping Utah above the salary cap but below the luxury tax.

With Foye's addition and Bell's expected departure, Utah's roster will be set at 14 if Murphy is signed.
