The 2006 No. 13 overall pick averaged 7.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and shot 34.2 percent from 3-point range last season.

A role as a veteran presence and a mentorship one can be expected of the versatile big man, who at this point in his career has still a place in the National Basketball Association as one of the best glue guys in a locker room.

Jerebko spent the last two seasons with the Celtics and averaged 3.8 points and 3.5 rebounds and shot 34.6 percent from beyond the arc a year ago.

A 2017 Turkish Super League All-Star selection, Udoh led Fenerbahce to the EuroLeague title and won the EuroLeague Final Four MVP.

Google acquires Bengaluru firm Halli Labs
Google has been the most aggressive buyer in this space with 11 acquisitions since 2012 followed by Apple , Facebook and Intel. Before Halli Labs, Gupta was the chief product and technology officer at Stayzilla from 2016 to 2017.

Needless to say, it didn't exactly work out that way.

While Udoh still showed a penchant for blocking shots, his offensive game remained sorely lacking, as Udoh posted 5.6 points per game off of 43.1 shooting during his second year. From there he spent three years with the Milwaukee Bucks and one more with the Los Angeles Clippers before shifting his career overseas.

The Jazz have been busy this summer.

The Jazz also traded for point guard Rick Rubio just before the start of free agency, partly in an attempt to re-sign Hayward.
