Contract negotioations between the Utah Jazz and center Kyrylo Fesenko are ongoing. A deal could be reached this week, but nothing is imminent.

A mixture of NBA and European teams have shown recent interest in the third-year center from Ukraine. However, the Jazz remain the most likely option for Fesenko next season.

Utah has made a one-year, $1 million qualifying offer to Fesenko that has been on the table since July. The possibility also remains that Fesenko and the Jazz could soon agree to a multiyear deal.
