SALT LAKE CITY — A day after former Provo High and BYU star Kyle Collinsworth was traded to the NBA G League’s Salt Lake City Stars by Raptors 905 (the Toronto Raptors’ G League affiliate), the Utah Jazz announced they have signed him to a contract.

On Saturday, the Jazz announced the move, while also announcing they have waived Trevon Bluiett.

Terms of Collinsworth’s contract were not disclosed, although given that the Stars acquired his returning player rights on Friday, it is likely that Collinsworth signed an affiliate contract with Utah. That would allow him to participate in the remainder of preseason camp with the Jazz and then join the Stars should he presumably not make Utah’s opening night roster.

NBA teams are allowed to have four affiliate players under contract during the preseason.
