ORLANDO – Free-agent guard John Lucas III met with Utah Jazz executives on Monday in Orlando, but the two sides have not reached a deal.
“John has started the process of meeting with teams who have an interest in him,” Lucas’ agent, Bernie Lee, told USA TODAY Sports in a text message. “He has his next meeting set for tomorrow back home in Houston. John hopes to make a decision by the end of the week.”
The Jazz are in need of depth at guard, and Lucas can provide that. The son of former NBA star John Lucas II, he averaged 5.3 points for the Toronto Raptors last season, and his best season was the year before with the Chicago Bulls when he averaged 7.5 points and 2.2 assists. He shot 39.3% on the three-pointers and played 14.8 minutes per game for the Bulls in 2011-12.
Jazz officials are in Orlando for Summer League.
