The Jazz did not disclose terms of the deal, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that it was for one year and $14 million. The extension keeps Ingles under contract through the end of the 2021-22 campaign.

He is due to make $11.95 million in the season that is about to start, then $10.96 million in 2020-21.

Ingles, 32, started all 82 games last season and averaged 12.1 points, 5.7 assists and 4.0 rebounds. The Australia native has spent all five of his NBA seasons with the Jazz.

"As one of our longest tenured players, Joe's shooting acumen, playmaking ability and unselfishness have been integral to our team's identity," Jazz general manager Justin Zanik said in a statement. "We are excited to keep a player like Joe, as his character and leadership are critical for the foundation of our team."
