He told the Tribune that once the deal is finalized, he'll be a free agent and can sign with any team. "I've been given the greenlight and we've agreed to terms," Bell told the Tribune. The Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers would be interested in Bell, according to the Yahoo! Sports. Bell, 34, played in 34 games and averaged 6.4 points for Utah this past season.
