Motum Signs With Utah Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY – Former Washington State University men's basketball standout, Brock Motum, has signed with the Utah Jazz as a free agent, the organization announced Tuesday. Per team policy, financial terms were not released.

Motum (6-10, 245, Washington State) spent the 2013-14 season with Granarolo Bologna of the Italian SerieA League, averaging 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds while shooting 50.6 percent from the field. He also participated in the 2014 NBA Summer League with the Jazz in Las Vegas, where he appeared in five games and averaged 8.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists per contest.

The 23-year-old forward played collegiately at Washington State (2009-13), where he ranks fifth on the Cougars all-time list in both career points (1,530) and field goal percentage (.567). As a senior he led the Pac-12 in scoring average with 18.7 points per game, scoring at least 10 points in all 31 contests, and was selected All-Pac-12 Second Team. Following his junior season, Motum was named to the 2012 All-Pac-12 First Team and earned the league's Most Improved Player award.

A native of Melbourne, Australia, Motum competed for the Australian Institute of Sport in both 2008 and 2009, and is currently playing for the Australian National Team at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
