We told you yesterday when the news broke that Utah was cutting lose Jamaal Tinsley that the Jazz could turn to the D-League for his replacement.

They have. Utah has signed Diante Garrett from the Iowa Energy, the team announced.

Garrett, age 25 out of Iowa State, played 19 games for the Suns last season in a reserve role and didn’t exactly blow any doors off. Before that he played in Europe. He was in camp this preseason with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Utah has John Lucas III also on the roster to play the point, but they are ultimately waiting for the return of Trey Burke, who they want to run the show.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $20,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Wednesday night’s games. It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $3,000. Starts at 7pm ET. Here’s the link.

Garrett will get a chance to show he belongs on the rebuilding Jazz, we’ll see what he does with the opportunity.
