The Utah Jazz signed free agent Toure Murry to a two-year deal on Tuesday, according to the Wall Street Journal's Chris Herring.

Murry appeared in 51 games for the New York Knicks as a rookie last season, averaging about three points, one assist and one rebound in seven minutes per game. He shot 43 percent from the field and 42 percent from the 3-point line.

The Jazz needed another point guard behind Trey Burke and Dante Exum after trading reserve John Lucas III to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 24-year-old Murry can be that guy, though he probably won't get many minutes if Burke and Exum stay healthy.

Also on Tuesday, Utah announced the signing of Aussie rookie Brock Motum.
