Raja Bell Taking Up Jazz Roster Spot
The Utah Jazz will open training camp Tuesday with 19 players on their roster, including disgruntled guard Raja Bell, though the team and his agent have mutually agreed the 35-year-old should not attend.
Bell is taking up one of those spots. He is scheduled to make $3.5 million in the final year of his contract but has publicly feuded with coach Tyrone Corbin and indicated the relationship had suffered “irreparable damage.”
Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey on Friday said the two sides mutually agreed it was in the “best interest” of both parties that Bell not rejoin the team.
