    It sounds like Raja Bell will be the player the Jazz waive to make room for D-League call-up Travis Leslie. Leslie will join team tomorrow.

    **** I wanted Watson to go.

    Mark Spears tweeting signing is expected tomorrow.
    Bill Oram tweeting Leslie was inactive tonight.

    Just heard from a source that the call up was not to play, but to help Corbin with rotations.
    It was a coaching call up, and this kid apparently has special skills in teaching how to use players and develop them properly while still winning.

    Knowing how KOC HATES leaks, he probably called Leslie back and told him "sorry, "loose lips sink ships, so we've changed our mind."

    He can sign with a team, but he can't play in the playoffs. Right after that deadline passed Raja was still hoping to sign with a team even through the end of the regular season.

    Bell hosed himself. The jazz tried to negotiate a buyout of his contract, and throughout the year, but Bell refused every offer till the jazz finally said screw you, and cut him, if if the rumors are true.

    Lol... Bell did this to himself.

    It is strange a player with his length and athleticism wasn't taken earlier. Going by his college numbers, he didn't improve much from his 2nd to 3rd year in college. His three point percentage specifically took a dive down to 30% which may have scared off GMs. A SG without a 3 point shot isn't a very attractive prospect. He hasn't played much since college up until this year in D league so there is still a lot of unknown and potential it would seem. He is still very young, will turn 23 later this month, the same age Matthews was when he was signed by the Jazz. It is a very low risk, high reward signing, KOC does it again!
