SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The Utah Jazz have signed free agent wing Quincy Ford, who played for the team in the summer league.

The 6-foot-8, 225-pound small forward played for the Jazz in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas this summer, averaging 5.1 points and 5.2 rebounds in eight games. The team announced the move Wednesday. The Jazz have 14 guaranteed contracts on the roster already, if impressed by someone in camp they can add one more to the team opening night.

Ford went undrafted after averaging 16.4 points and 7.0 rebounds as a senior at Northeastern. His 204 3-pointers rank No. 4 in school history.

The Jazz have been active this offseason, signing veteran Joe Johnson and trading for George Hill and Boris Diaw. They also signed draft picks Joel Bolomboy and Marcus Paige.

The Jazz finished 40-42 and missed the playoffs for the fourth consecutive season. The 2014 No. 5 overall pick Dante Exum is expected to return after a knee injury.
