Tinsley didn’t provide much of anything — 1.1 points a game on 20 percent shooting, plus 2.9 assists per game. He started five of the Jazz’s eight games, all losses.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $15,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Tuesday night’s games. It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $2,000. Starts at 7:30pm ET. Here’s the link.
So, if he is out, who is in? Marc Stein of ESPN has heard rumblings.

As for Tinsley, not sure he is going to land another job in the league.
