Default Jazz sign kid who is battling leukemia

He's five years old. It's a one-day contract.

Sounds like an illegal signing. The kid didn't enter the draft and doesn't meet age requirements anyway. If the Jazz can get away with this, the Blazers should use it as leverage for signing high school prospects.

Totally agree. This opens a pandora's box. "Oh wait, we can't sign that 16 year old to a 6 year contract? The Jazz signed a FIVE YEAR OLD!" Man, Adam Silver f-cking blew it this time. Not to mention all the child labor laws in place....this is a mess.....

Aren't the Jazz the team that booed and heckled Derek Fisher for leaving Utah to go to L.A. so his daughter could get medical treatment for cancer? Just checking....


Five year old kid with leukemia > Raymond Felton....yeah, I said it....
