The Utah Jazz are expected to sign former Virginia point guard Kihei Clark to the team’s Summer League team some time today.

Clark, a record-breaking, five-year point guard for Tony Bennett, worked out for four NBA teams, hoping to land a spot on a roster. Details of the deal were not available.

The Jazz play Collin Sexton, Jordan Clarkson and Kris Dunn at the point, but are looking at adding depth. Utah drafted a pair of guards in Thursday’s draft: Ohio State’s Brice Sensabaugh and Baylor’s Keyonte George, but both are considered shooting guards.

In his five seasons as a Wahoo, Clark averaged 8.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game, finishing his career as the school’s all-time leader in games played (161), games started (141), wins (122) and assists (718).
