    Indiana Pacers v Chicago Bulls

    We told you, the big deals we love to talk about are not as likely to happen this year. There’s a lot of buzz about the Celtics but if you were around Kevin Garnett at all All-Star weekend you saw a guy adamant he is not waiving he no trade clause. The Lakers are not…

  4. Report: Lakers reach out to Mickael Pietrus

    Nov 24, 2012, 3:23 PM EDT

    Celtics guard Pietrus reacts after a three point shot in the second half of their NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks in Atlanta.

    This likely isn’t going anywhere for the same reason it hasn’t gone anywhere with Indiana or San Antonio or a host of other NBA teams. But a day after a report surfaced that the Lakers had some interest in Raja Bell if he reaches a buyout deal with Utah, comes this report about the Lakers…

  5. Report: Lakers show interest in Raja Bell

    Nov 23, 2012, 2:15 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers

    Mickael Pietrus

    Kevin Love’s hand. Ricky Rubio’s knee. Chase Budinger’s knee. Brandon Roy’s knees. J.J. Barea’s foot. Now after Monday night you can add Nikola Pekovic’s ankle to the list. Minnesota’s long list of injuries is long and serious. It’s a huge credit to coach Rick Adelman that the Timberwolves are 5-2 this young season. But they…

    BELL_RAJA

    Anyone interested in adding Raja Bell and his $3.5 million deal to your roster? Since this summer the Jazz and Bell’s agent have been trying to workout a buyout of the veteran guard, but the Jazz wanted a deeper discount to let him go then Bell was offering.

  9. How to win the preseason

    Marvin Wiliams, Al Jefferson, Paul Milsap

    No one has ever accused the Utah Jazz of being too trendy. Just like John Stockton defiantly ignored the whole “wearing shorts that allow circulation to the rest of your leg” thing late in his career, Utah has completely avoided the recent trend of slimming down and going small. The Jazz will start four players…

  10. That Jazz are like “Nah, that’s cool, Raja Bell. No need to come to training camp.”

    As you read this Raja Bell exists in limbo (no, not the dance, although enjoy that mental image if you want). He is under contract with the Jazz but the two are negotiating a buyout… well, maybe negotiations is not the best word. Stalemate might more accurately describe the process. Bell will not be at…

    Jul 31, 2012, 9:57 AM EDT

    Raja Bell

    Back on July 8, Raja Bell and the Utah Jazz reached a verbal agreement to a contract buyout. This wasn’t a rumor from some random “source,” this was something Bell himself confirmed. But here we are on the final day of July and Bell has yet to sign the actual buyout paperwork, reports the Salt…

    Jul 9, 2012, 12:21 AM EDT

    Raja Bell

    How much does Raja Bell still have in the take at age 36 next season? That’s the question some contenders will have to ask because Bell is going to be on the market — he has a verbal agreement for a buyout deal with the Utah Jazz, Bell told the Salt Lake Tribune. “I’ve been…

  17. C.J. Miles and Raja Bell are not thrilled with Ty Corbin

    May 8, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    Ty Corbin did a lot of things right in his first full season as the Utah Jazz’s head coach. Even though the Jazz were swept in convincing fashion by the Spurs in the 1st round, the team did make the playoffs the year after Hall-of-Fame coach Jerry Sloan left mid-season and superstar point guard Deron…

  21. Winderman: The “Take my Turkoglu, please” trade deadline

    Mar 9, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Hedo Turkoglu

    The shame of the NBA trading deadline is that it does not follow the post-Christmas “Boxing Day” tradition of Canada and other countries, where you spend the day after sorting out the junk from the actual gifts. In the NBA, it remains an all-in-one process, which is why, in this space over the past few…

  25. Jazz go young, veteran players not thrilled with new role

    Jan 5, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    NBPA Representatives Meet To Discuss NBA Lockout

    The Jazz are in a rebuilding mode. That means young players such as Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter are going to get big minutes and be given the rope to learn on the job. There is a reason veteran players don’t like to be on rebuilding teams. This is leading to some tension…
