    Didn't he have a good showing with the Clippers his rookie year?

    Ironically enough, his only game played in the NBA that had him getting over 10 minutes was against the Jazz when we blew them out last year.

    He can still sign with any team but is ineligible to play in the playoffs.

    Does this mean Leslie will be ineligible for the playoffs as well? Not that it matters, I suppose. He is unlikely to be an instant impact player.

    This signing is for practice situations and perhaps to lock him up for next year.

    Remember Miki Moore? He signed after the deadline but was still qualified to play for the Jazz had they made the playoffs. I think the same thing applies to this guy seeing as he hasn't played a regular season game for an NBA team this year. I would appreciate confirmation on this though.

    Seems clear enough: "If a player is waived after March 1 (March 23 in 2011-12), he is ineligible to be included in the playoff roster of any team that claims him off waivers or signs him as a free agent."

    He can play cause he was a FA before the March 1st deadline. He's playoff eligible.

    Gotta say this pick up of this kid gives me high hopes for this summer...

    I hope this means that the Jazz are looking to go young next year and see how our young guys do!!

    It might be ugly when it comes to wins and losses but it will sure be fun to watch!!

    Which should have happened this year. The 2012-2013 season will go down as the most wasted season in franchise history. We stuck with the vets and still didn't make the playoffs

    I'd rather get some vets to round out the core 4 that will back up the 4 to make a strong team and continue to give wisdom in the locker room and on the court. We are already bringing this kid in and at least two new rookies. We need some vets that can play some in stretches but not take away from the core4. I think we need a good mix.
