Signing celebration to be held at WHS

for Juwan Morgan at 6 p.m. Friday


A signing celebration will be held at 6 p.m. Friday, Aug. 2, for Waynesville High School graduate Juwan Morgan in the gym at Waynesville High School.


Waynesville R-VI Superintendent Dr. Brian Henry and Waynesville High School Head Basketball Coach Chris Pilz will be among the speakers during the event, marking Morgan’s Exhibit 10 contract with the NBA’s Utah Jazz.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a summer/training camp NBA contract for the NBA league minimum salary. It can be converted to a regular-season contract or a two-way deal, or it can expire at the conclusion of camp and a player becomes a free agent, according to a July 29 article by Mike Schumann in The Daily Hoosier.

While at WHS, Morgan was a member of the #1 state-ranked Class 5A team his junior year and was twice the Ozark Conference MVP and a two-time Missouri All State Selection.


Morgan’s career with Indiana University included the following:

  • Points:  1,374 (24th all-time)
  • Field Goal Percentage:  56.2% (5th all-time)
  • Rebounds:  757 (10th all-time)
  • Blocks:  138 (8th all-time)
