Former Washington State men’s basketball standout Brock Motum has signed with the Utah Jazz as a free agent, the organization announced Tuesday. Per team policy, financial terms were not released.

The 6-foot-10, 245-pound Motum spent the 2013-14 season with Granarolo Bologna of the Italian SerieA League, averaging 8.3 points and 3.3 rebounds while shooting 50.6 percent from the field. He also participated in the NBA Summer League with the Jazz in Las Vegas, where he appeared in five games and averaged 8.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.6 assists per contest.

The 23-year-old forward played collegiately at Washington State (2009-13), where he ranks fifth on the Cougars all-time list in both career points (1,530) and field-goal percent (.567).

As a senior, the native of Melbourne, Australia, led the Pac-12 in scoring with 18.7 points per game, scoring at least 10 points in all 31 contests, and was selected All-Pac-12 second team.

Note

• For the first time since the 2009 season, both the Washington men’s and women’s cross-country squads begin the year in the national top 30.

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association announced its preseason voting results, with the UW women’s team beginning the season ranked 15th, and the Husky men coming in at No. 27.
