Raja Bell and the Jazz have worked on finalizing a buyout for months, but agent Herb Rudoy has told RealGM that talks have fallen apart.
Ever since summer, the Utah Jazz have been trying to figure out what to do with Raja Bell. Coach Corbin doesn’t like him, which means the franchise doesn’t like him. But they owe him, owe him about $3.5 mil to be exact.
Bell told them to buy him out, but they don’t wanna pay. As far as we know, Bell didn’t show up to training camp, upon request of the franchise. This is bizarre...
The Jazz are not currently discussing a buyout of Raja Bell, but could return to the table.
It may have looked like old times with Jerry Sloan, Karl Malone and John Stockton back at the Utah Jazz arena - albeit for a local Hall of Fame ceremony.
Yet even Sloan wouldn't recognize this year's Jazz team.
The Jazz have two players named Williams, Mo and Marvin, brought in to boost a dreadful 3-point shooting attack that ranked 27th in the NBA last season.
