After going undrafted Thursday night, Juwan Morgan has agreed to a deal with the Utah Jazz.

The Athletic's Michael Scotto first reported the deal and Hoops Hype writer Bryan Kalbroksy revealed the details of it. For now, Morgan's undrafted free agent deal is only for the summer league.

Morgan is coming off a four-year career at IU. In his senior season, he averaged 15.5 points and 8.2 rebounds per game.

Morgan worked out for the Jazz May 23 and will now hope to get invited to the team's training camp in the fall to further pursue his goal of making an NBA roster.

Since Morgan's deal is only for the summer league, other NBA teams are allowed to pursue him for the latter stages of the offseason process.

Utah will play in the Salt Lake Summer League — a four-team, six-game event put on by the Jazz on July 1-3 at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The Jazz will then compete in the Las Vegas Summer League, which all 30 NBA teams play in. It will also feature two national teams, China and Croatia.

The Las Vegas Summer League will start July 5 through July 15 at Thomas and Mack Center and Cox Pavilion in Las Vegas on the campus of University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Morgan and the Jazz can be seen playing in the Las Vegas Summer League on either ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.
