Best news ever : jazz fans celebrate the signing of a $95Million star player

So there was a collective sigh of relief in the Valley when word spread that he was going to turn down his player option in the desert and go for a fresh start.

In free agency, Eubanks signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Utah Jazz. The signing was criticized by Bleacher Report, which labeled it “puzzling” for a few reasons:

“The 27-year-old center wasn’t all that good for the Phoenix Suns last season, and he has never played on anything but minimum contracts in his career.” In addition to selecting Duke big man Kyle Filipowski with the No. 32 overall pick in the 2024 NBA draft, the Jazz also have Walker Kessler and John Collins at center,” B/R noted.

“It would have been acceptable to bring in Eubanks as a veteran insurance option on a minimum deal close to the end of free agency, but Utah had no business giving him a significant portion of its budget space right now. Even though the Jazz weren’t expected to be major spenders in the free agent market, they might have served as a clearinghouse for clubs trying to unload cash and draft assets.

“This was a puzzling and unnecessary move by Utah.”

A D was given to the move.

Though he had previously informed Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic that he and the team had interest in a reunion, Eubanks did not make an impression during his time in the Valley and ultimately turned down the opportunity.

Along with selecting center Oso Ighodaro in the second round, Phoenix also signed Mason Plumlee as a backup to Jusuf Nurkic.
