The Utah Jazz signed a 5-year-old boy with leukemia to a one-day contract for a special scrimmage on Monday night in Salt Lake City. JP Gibson, who was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, signed his contract with Jazz president Randy Rigby before joining the team in uniform for the annual preseason intrasquad scrimmage at EnergySolutions Arena. JP was joined by his parents, Josh and Megan, and his 2-year-old sister, Elsie. The family was hosted by the Jazz and photographer Jon Diaz’s “Anything Can Be” project that creates storybooks for children with cancer about their dreams and wishes.
