Free agent Jamaal Tinsley agrees a deal to join the Utah Jazz following the news that Trey Burke could be out of action for three months.

The Utah Jazz have completed a deal to sign NBA veteran point guard Jamaal Tinsley.

Despite being released in the summer and spending recent months as a free agent, Tinsley has rejoined the team he played for in each of the last two seasons.

The Jazz made the decision to sign the 35-year-old due to a lack of depth on their roster following the injury to Trey Burke.

Burke is expected to miss up to three months of action after he broke his finger during pre-season.
