The Utah Jazz are once again involved in trade talks with the Golden State Warriors, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Four days after agreeing to take on a year's worth of big contracts from the Warriors in exchange for draft picks, the Jazz will reportedly sign and trade free agent guard Randy Foye to the Denver Nuggets, who will in turn sign and trade free agent Andre Iguodala to the Warriors. The Warriors and Iguodala agreed to a four-year $48 million deal last week.

According to Wojnarowski, the Jazz would sign Foye to a three-year, $9 million contract. Foye, 29, joined the Jazz last season on a one-year contract, and set team records in 3-pointers made and attempted. He averaged 10.8 points per game and made 41 percent of his 3-pointers.

Under contract, the Jazz have shooting guards Alec Burks and Brandon Rush, one of the players acquired from the Warriors last week. Free agents Paul Millsap, DeMarre Carroll, Al Jefferson and Earl Watson have all signed wiht other teams this offseason.
