Mudiay has agreed to a one-year contract with the Jazz, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Mudiay saw his role increase last season with the Knicks, though the team ultimately won just 17 games, so it doesn't appear many front offices were convinced Mudiay turned a corner. He made significant strides in shooting efficiency, however, and he remains a solid passer. In joining Utah, he'll see his workload decline dramatically, and his best outcome is the first point guard off the bench behind Mike Conley.
Mudiay didn't have his qualifying offer extended and will become an unrestricted free agent, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports
The former lottery pick will join the free agent pool on June 30th. With Mudiay coming off a career-year in which averaged a career-best 14.8 points, 3.9 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.2 threes in 27.2 minutes per game, some teams may see the 22-year-old guard as a worthy depth option at point guard.
Mudiay (shoulder) will sit out the Knicks' final two regular season games, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
Mudiay had already been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Bulls, and the Knicks have now confirmed he'll miss Wednesday's matchup with the Pistons, as well. Mario Hezonja will make another start at point guard Tuesday, with Dennis Smith Jr. as the presumed backup.
Mudiay (shoulder) is listed out for Tuesday's game against the Bulls.
Mudiay will be sidelined for his third consecutive matchup while nursing a left shoulder injury. With nothing left to play for, the Knicks are unlikely to rush him back for Wednesday's season finale against the Pistons.
Mudiay (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against Washington.
Mudiay is in jeopardy of missing a second-straight game with a sore left shoulder. With the Knicks experiencing myriad injuries, an absence by Mudiay would lead to a boost in minutes for Mario Hezonja and John Jenkins.
Mudiay has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Rockets due a sore left shoulder, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Mudiay most recently played 39 minutes in Wednesday's game against the Magic but appears to have emerged a bit banged up. With Dennis Smith (back) and Allonzo Trier (calf) potentially done for the rest of the year and Kadeem Allen still going through the concussion protocol, the Knicks may be without all of their primary ball handlers Friday night. If all four were ruled out Friday, John Jenkins and Damyean Dotson would be in line to carry majority of the backcourt minutes in Houston.
Mudiay amassed 13 points (3-13, 1-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), 10 assists, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in 39 minutes during Wednesday's game against Orlando.
Mudiay continued his strong all-around play despite struggling with his shot Wednesday. Over his past 10 games, the fourth-year guard's averaging 17.6 points, 4.8 assists and 4.2 rebounds. Given the lack of other playmaking options for the Knicks, Mudiay can be expected to play a leading role for the remaining four games of the season.
Mudiay produced 17 points (7-21 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and four assists in 36 minutes Monday in the Knicks' 113-105 victory over the Bulls.
With Dennis Smith (back) sitting out, Mudiay received full reign at point guard and was able to pile up some useful counting stats, albeit with some horrendous shooting. The inefficiency from the field and three-point range has hindered Mudiay throughout his career, but so long as fantasy managers aren't trying to make up ground in those categories, the fourth-year player should prove useful over the Knicks' final five games. Mudiay's outlook would improve further if the Knicks elect to shut down Smith for the season.
Mudiay produced 24 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 10-12 FT), five rebounds, and four assists in 35 minutes during Saturday's 100-92 loss to the Heat.
Mudiay scored an efficient 24 points in Saturday's loss, continuing his strong play of late. He has been one of the more surprising stories to come out of New York this season and has certainly put himself on the radar for standard leagues heading into next season. His exact role is unclear but he has demonstrated the ability to produce at a consistent enough level to survive in the NBA.
Mudiay put up 11 points (4-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds and an assist over 25 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Raptors on Thursday.
Mudiay put up a bland stat line in Thursday's loss, despite starting and playing 25 minutes. Dennis Smith (back) was healthy enough to enter the rotation, and his presence cut into Mudiay's production. Mudiay has been great with Smith out of the lineup, but the former should be relegated back to fantasy benches now that the latter is healthy.
Mudiay produced 26 points (10-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and a steal over 35 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Clippers on Sunday.
Mudiay had another big game, starting in place of Dennis Smith (back). Mudiay has gone for 20 points in consecutive games, and he's been solid in facilitating and rebounding, too. With Smith likely out a couple more games, Mudiay is a good bet to replicate Sunday's production.
Mudiay racked up 21 points (9-21 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, and one block in 34 minutes during Friday's 111-93 loss to the Nuggets.
Mudiay drew the start with Dennis Smith (back) sidelined and turned in plenty of counting stats against the team that drafted him. Mudiay has reached double figures in scoring in five of the last six games, and with Smith likely to be sidelined for at least one more tilt (and potentially more), Mudiay is likely to be extremely aggressive once again during Sunday's matchup with the Clippers.
Mudiay finished with seven points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three assists over 18 minutes in the Knicks' loss to the Raptors on Monday.
After averaging 21.0 points over his last three games, Mudiay came up with just seven points in Monday's loss. It's not surprising considering Mudiay's up-and-down performances this season.
Mudiay scored a team-high 28 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT) while adding eight assists, two rebounds and a block in 33 minutes during Sunday's 124-123 win over the Lakers.
It's his best scoring performance since he dropped 32 on the Hawks just before Christmas. Mudiay will continue to start as long as Dennis Smith's back woes keep him sidelined, and while his production might be erratic in that role, he is capable of big numbers, making him an intriguing DFS tournament option.
Mudiay finished with 14 points (6-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds, and two assists in 36 minutes during Friday's 109-83 loss to the Spurs.
Mudiay was filling in for Dennis Smith Jr. (back) Friday and managed to leave with 14 points in 36 minutes. His production was solid enough given he was likely a streaming option in many formats. Smith is questionable for the Knicks next game and if he is ruled out once again, Mudiay will likely hold the starting spot for another game.
Mudiay will get the start at point guard for Friday's matchup with the Spurs, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.
Mudiay will be replacing Dennis Smith (back) in the starting lineup. He had started 32 games straight before a 12-game stint on the sidelines. When he returned the Knicks had acquired Smith, so he has played a reserve role the previous ten games. The 23-year-old has averaged 16.3 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 4.3 assists across 28.1 minutes per game as a starter this season.
Mudiay totaled 21 points (7-14 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two blocks across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 103-98 loss to the Pacers.
After four-straight single-digit duds in the scoring column, Mudiay lit up the scoreboard Tuesday night, hitting 50 percent of his shots in the contest. While Dennis Smith Jr. continues to man the starting role, Mudiay has noticeably gotten his fair share of time too, playing 32 minutes on the night, nine more than any other bench player.
Mudiay managed 16 points (6-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 29 minutes during Sunday's 128-107 loss to the Clippers.
Mudiay was inefficient as a scorer but filled up the stat sheet while earning a team high minute total. He has reached double figures in scoring in all five games since his recent 12-game injury absence, bringing his double-digit scoring streak to 10 games. The acquisition of Dennis Smith seemed like it would seriously halt Mudiay's ability to produce quality counting stats, but thus far that hasn't really been the case.
Mudiay scored a team-high 19 points (8-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-5 FT) while adding eight rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 108-103 win over the Magic.
It was a bizarre night, which is perhaps fitting for a rare Knicks win -- none of their starters managed to score in double digits, but Mudiay and the second unit outscored Orlando's reserves by a massive 75-7. The fourth-year guard has scored at least 15 points in all three games since returning from his shoulder injury, but it looks for now like Mudiay will remain on the bench rather than getting a chance to start alongside Dennis Smith jr.
Mudiay played 19 minutes and produced 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and one assist Sunday in the Knicks' 130-118 loss to the Spurs.
After the Knicks acquired Dennis Smith from the Mavericks in the midst of Mudiay's recovery from a strained left shoulder, the fourth-year point guard has predictably transitioned into a backup role since returning after the All-Star break. Coach David Fizdale thus far hasn't shown a willingness to play the two floor generals alongside one another, resulting in Mudiay logging less than 30 minutes in both of his first two games back. Mudiay has made the most of his limited run thus far with 15- and 19-point outings, but it's come on the back of unsustainable 53.8 percent shooting from the field and 55.6 percent shooting from distance. Despite his recent success, Mudiay still looks like a deep-league fantasy option.
