Raja Bell Not Attending Jazz Training Camp
The Jazz announced Friday that veteran guard Raja Bell won’t attend training camp next week.
“I have spoken with Raja and his representative, Herb Rudoy, and we have mutually agreed that although Raja remains under contract, it is in the best interest of all parties that he not rejoin the team next week when the Jazz begin training camp,” Utah general manger Dennis Lindsey said in a news release. “We will now move forward focusing on Jazz basketball and our preparation for the upcoming season. We will have no further comment on this matter.”
Camp begins Monday and runs through Friday. The Jazz play their first preseason game Oct. 8 at Golden State.
As of Thursday, Bell hadn’t been informed by the Jazz whether he was supposed to attend camp.
Bell, 35, is set to make $3.5 million during the 2012-13 season, which is his last year under contract with the Jazz.
