SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Jazz have formally signed draft picks Dante Exum and Rodney Hood.

Hood was the 23rd overall pick in the draft out of Duke. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 16.1 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists with the Blue Devils last season.

The terms of the deals were not released. Both players are eligible to play for the Jazz in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
