Murry and the Jazz have been in talks throughout the summer. The second-year guard out of Wichita State spent last season with the New York Knicks, appearing in 51 games in all.

Motum spent last season in Europe, averaging 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds for the Italian club Granarolo Bologna.

The Aussie, who played his college ball at Washington State, made an impression on the Jazz with his play during the Las Vegas summer league.

There he averaged eight points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists in five league games.

Motum will also play alongside Jazz rookie Dante Exum, as the Australian national team competes in the FIBA World Cup in Spain starting this week.
