Joe Ingles Claimed off Waivers by Utah Jazz


Joe Ingles has been claimed by the Utah Jazz and will join their team before the start of the season. Ingles was originally recruited by the LA clippers who decided not to keep him going into the start of the season. In his time with the Clippers Ingles averaged only 7.5 minutes per game and didn't really have enough time to gain any significant stats. Ingles joins his Australian National team-mate Dante Exum on the squad but his other Boomers team mate Brock Motum was recently let go the Jazz. This move is what opened up space on the roster for Ingles. A lot of Jazz fans were upset by the news that Motum was let go as he was a versatile big who shot at a decent clip from long range. The forward position with the Jazz is a tough spot to retain and Ingles will likely have to battle for minutes against recent waiver acquisition Jordan Hamilton. Lets hope Ingles does enough to retain a position with the Jazz and earn some meaningfull minutes heading into the season. Ingles is a very versatile player and could be a great pick up for the jazz this late in the offseason.
