SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Jazz have signed point guard Raul Neto to a multi-year contract.

The team announced the deal Thursday.

The Brazilian was selected in the second round of the 2013 draft by the Atlanta Hawks. The Jazz traded the Brooklyn Nets’ 2015 second-round pick for Neto during that draft.

The 6-foot-1, 172-pounder averaged 8.9 points, 3.9 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 steals for Universidad Catolica De Murica of the Liga ACP in Spain last season. He was on the Brazil national team that played in the 2014 FIBA World Cup and the 2012 Olympics.

The Jazz now have four point guards on the roster - Dante Exum, Trey Burke, Bryce Cotton and Neto. It’s unlikely all four will be on the roster when the season begins.
