Utah Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor announced Monday that his team has signed rookie guard and University of Georgia graduate Sundiata Gaines for the remainder of the season.

Gaines was originally signed to a 10-day contract by the Jazz on Jan. 5 before being re-signed to a second 10-day contract on Jan. 15.  

He has appeared in seven games for the Jazz, averaging 2.9 points and 1.1 assists in 7.1 minutes per game. The Jazz is 6-2 since signing Gaines, who hit a game-winning three-pointer as time expired to beat Cleveland, 97-96, on Jan. 14.

He also recorded a career-high nine points in the game against the Cavaliers.

Gaines reached career highs in minutes (21) and assists (five) in his NBA debut against Memphis on Jan. 6.

Gaines became the fourth NBA Development League (D-League) call-up to the NBA this season, as well as the fourth D-League call-up in Jazz history, joining Rusty LaRue (2000-01), Mikki Moore (2003-04) and Louis Amundson (2006-07).
