Raja Bell Says Ty Corbin ‘Unprofessional’
The morning after being swept by San Antonio, most Utah Jazz players talked about how satisfying their past playoff season was and expressed optimism for the future.
And then there was Raja Bell.
The 12-year veteran has one season remaining on his three-year deal with the Jazz, but he is convinced his stay in the Beehive State is over.
Bell started his candid nine-minute interview at Tuesday’s locker clean-out with the verbal bombshell, “I don’t think I have a future with the team.”
Bell’s biggest beef was about a communication gap with his coach, something that dates back to the 2010-11 season when he was displeased with the way (Tyrone) Corbin told him about his decision to move him to a reserve role at the end of the year.
“I just thought that the way I was handled by Ty was unprofessional,” Bell said.
