JAZZ SIGNS VAUGHN TO THREE-YEAR DEAL

Jacque Vaughn, the 28th overall pick in the NBA draft, signed a three-year deal with the Utah Jazz.

The contract, according to rookie salary guidelines, will be worth between $1.7 million and $2 million.

The 22-year-old point guard from Kansas is working out in the Jazz rookie and free-agent camp and is scheduled to play in the upcoming Rocky Mountain Revue, which begins Friday.

Vaughn will be expected to split minutes with Howard Eisley in relieving veteran point guard John Stockton. Eisley is one of three free agents the Jazz have yet to re-sign.

In other NBA news, the Denver Nuggets signed Tony Battie, a center-forward from Texas Tech who was fifth overall pick in the NBA draft and the third of their three first-round draft picks. The Miami Heat also signed their first-round pick, forward Charles Smith from New Mexico. Terms were not disclosed for either signing.
