We are still just a few weeks away from the start of the NBA season, and while the spotlight lately has been on the Cleveland Cavaliers preparations, the Utah Jazz have provided a very interesting story.
The Jazz have confirmed a new signing to their roster ahead of their annual intrasquad scrimmage on Monday night.
It was confirmed by the team that they have signed a five-year-old free agent to their roster on a one-day contract.
The young man - JP Gibson suffers from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, but was brought to sign his Jazz contract on Monday.
He went on to meet his heroes and he along with his parents and two-year-old sister will all attend the scrimmage Monday night.
A great gesture
The Gibson family, saw their son sign his Jazz contract with team President Randy Rigby before joining the team in full uniform.
The family will be hosted by the Jazz and photographer Jon Diaz's "Anything Can Be" project.
The project creates story books for children with cancer and aims to help them achieve their life goals.
It is a great cause which has helped to bring to life many young children's dreams and it will hopefully continue to do so.
The Jazz are now starting to turn their attention towards the upcoming season and will be hoping to improve on last season's 25-57 record.
The Jazz will need to improve from last year after finishing bottom of the Western Conference and fourth from bottom in the NBA.
After drafting Dante Exum the Jazz may be feeling a bit more optimistic about their chances in the upcoming season.
It will however be tough for them to establish themselves amongst a packed Western Conference that contained eight of the NBA's top 10 teams last season.
Outside of last year's play-off picture, the Jazz may find themselves down at the bottom of the standings once again if teams such as the Denver Nuggets, LA Lakers and New Orleans Pelicans - who all missed out on the post-season last year pick up their games.
