Thabo Sefolosha has played 11 NBA seasons

Both Joe Ingles and Gordon Hayward hit free agency this summer.

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the Jazz and the 30-year-old Udoh agreed to a two-year deal worth $6.5 million. The 6-foot-10 Udoh averaged 12.1 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.2 blocks per game last season, establishing himself as Europe's best defensive player and focusing on a comeback to the National Basketball Association.

Udoh led Fenerbahce to the 2017 Euroleague championship and won the Final Four series MVP.

Diaw made an impact for the Jazz in his only season, averaging 4.6 points and 2.2 rebounds per game.

With Udoh, the Jazz will have additional frontcourt depth aside from Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors. Raul Neto has a nonguaranteed deal in place worth almost $1.5 million.

The Jazz now have 15 players on the roster who have signed contracts, the maximum the team can have to start the regular season. The Pistons traded him to the Celtics in 2014 as part of the package that brought Tayshaun Prince to Detroit.

Udoh, a 6-foot-10 forward/center, spent the past two seasons playing in the Euroleague.

Sefolosha heads to Utah after three seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.
