Johnny Juzang has officially found his NBA home.

The Utah Jazz announced Friday they have signed the former Bruin standout to a two-way contract. As a two-way player, Juzang will be eligible to play in 50 of Utah’s 82 regular-season games. Juzang will not, however, be eligible for the postseason roster. He’ll be allowed to practice with the team, travel with the team, and sit on the bench for the remaining 32 games as an inactive member of the team if the team chooses, or he can spend time with their team’s G League affiliate. For the Jazz, that’s the Salt Lake City Stars.

The contract value on a two-way deal is half of the rookie minimum salary, or approximately $502,000. That contract is also non-guaranteed, meaning a player could be cut at any point. But Juzang has performed well enough for the Jazz during Summer League that several wondered if he’d stick with the team moving forward.

The former UCLA wing has appeared in all four games so far for the Jazz at the NBA 2K23 Summer League in Las Vegas. He’s averaging 8.5 points and 4.5 rebounds a game. Though he’s shooting just 26% from the floor through those four games, Juzang has come up with some key buckets in clutch moments.

Juzang (6-7, 215, UCLA) played in 30 games (29 starts) with the Bruins last season and averaged 15.6 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists, earning 2021-22 All-Pac-12 First Team honors.

The Los Angeles-native averaged 19.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in nine career NCAA Tournament games. He helped lead UCLA to the Sweet 16 in 2022 and the Final Four in 2021, the program’s first Final Four appearance since 2008. He ranks 10th on the Bruin’s all-time scoring list in the NCAA Tournament with 174 points.
