Sefolosha, 33, averaged 7.2 points per game on 44.1% shooting last season for the Atlanta Hawks, as well as 4.4 rebounds per game. More importantly than his offensive impact, however, Sefolosha adds another intense defensive mind to Quin Snyder’s lock-down system.
The eleven-year veteran adds an experienced mind to the Jazz locker room and court, and a strong presence behind newly re-signed Joe Ingles, who agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract.
