The Utah Jazz invited 24 players to participate in a free agent minicamp this week.
Travis Leslie, Luke Zeller and Lazar Hayward were among the players who attended the free agent bonanza.
"I wouldn't be surprised to see a handful of these guys from this camp on an NBA roster on opening night next year,” Jazz head scout David Fredman said. “Now, whose roster? I don't know, These guys are guys that have enough talent in the right place at the right time they could be on an NBA roster easily."
Dennis Lindsey suggested the minicamp after coming to Utah from the Spurs organization.
"They had some success doing it in San Antonio. Dennis had the idea when he came here to do it," Fredman said. "It's no earth-shattering thing. It's just we're doing it now in Utah."
The Jazz only have six players with guaranteed contracts for the 2013-14 season.

If they trade up, it would be for a point guard, so what would be appealing and worth doing?
Cleveland isn’t giving away the #1 pick, and Orlando, Washington, Charlotte, and Phoenix are all going to want more than the...
