Utah Jazz sign five-year-old free agent
On Monday, the team signed five year old JP Gibson of Layton to a one-day contract.
“JP Gibson is the newest member of the Utah Jazz team for the day,” Jazz President Randy Rigby announced at a news conference before the team’s open scrimmage at EnergySolutions Arena. Per team policy, financial terms were not released.
Gibson was totally cool while he signed his contract in crayon, showed off his new #1 jersey and even warmed up with his new teammates but then again JP has already been through a lot. He was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia when he was 2 and a half.
