Happy Birthday, Joe Ingles

Oct 2nd 2018

We’d like to wish one of the Utah Jazz’s favorite Australians, Joe Ingles, a Happy 31st Birthday. Ingles has been part of the Jazz family since 2014 and has played for four seasons. He is a prime asset for the Jazz, with his slow style of play stumping many opponents on the court. Before playing for the Jazz, he had a successful career playing for teams in Europe.
