Please note how his name is pronounced, thank you.

SALT LAKE CITY (July 9, 2015) – The Utah Jazz announced today the team has signed guard Raul Neto (pronounced Hah-OOL Nett-oh) to a multi-year contract. Per team policy, financial terms were not released.

The Jazz acquired the rights to Neto, the 47th overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for the Brooklyn Nets’ 2015 second round selection on draft night in 2013.

The 6-1, 172-pound native of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil, appeared in 34 games (23 starts) for Universidad Catolica De Murcia of the Liga ACP in Spain, averaging 8.9 points, 3.9 assists, 2.1 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 22.4 minutes per contest.

Neto competed at the 2014 FIBA World Cup as a member of the Brazil National Team, helping his squad to a 5-2 record and a sixth place finish. The point guard saw action in seven games, averaging 7.6 points, 2.3 assists and 1.1 steals in 17.5 minutes per contest.

The 23-year-old was named MVP of adidas EUROCAMP 2013 and was a member of the Brazil National Team in the 2012 Olympic Games in London. He was also a member of the U19 Brazil National Team in 2009 and 2011 and played at the 2011 Nike Hoop Summit as a member of the World Select Team.
 
Female viewership just went up.

But seriously though, I'd like to see what the terms are for both Neto and Pleiss (whenever that becomes official.) I'd love to know how much cap space the Jazz still have.

Newly signed Raul Neto will travel with the Jazz to Las Vegas, but he will not play in the summer league. He will work out with veterans.

I like that he's already integrated himself into the team and seems to buy into the friendship and chemistry that the Jazz are building. . .
 
Really surprised he isn't going to be playing in the Summer League.
Makes sense. He's been a starter in Europe for a few seasons. Jazz need to get a good look at Cotton and Hanlan. And if Exum's ankle heals, we need Dante to play 25+ and continue to be aggressive like he was in game 1.

Still not sure why we need Neto.

Exum
Burke
Cotton

That's 3.

Brazilian point guard guard Raul Neto signed a three-year, $2.8M deal with the Utah Jazz, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Im assuming not all three years are guaranteed.
 
Why would he need to play in Summer league? He already played in one and that was followed by 2 years of professional basketball... Get him in with the vets and let him train with them.
 
Haven't we had like four of these threads?

Did he really sign this time?

Did the Jazz give a press release?
