Add two more names to the Utah Jazz roster.
The team on Tuesday announced the signing of Australian forward Brock Motum and, according to league sources, the team has also reached a deal with free agent guard Touré Murry.
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.
