Never mind: hadn't seen the Paul Reed speculation.I don't know if this had anything to do with the release at all, but as I watched his G-League highlights from last year, it seems he was somewhat slimmer then than in SL recently. Perhaps the Jazz were not happy about his level of conditioning?
Even out of the draft, one of the recurring themes on him was that he was going to have to continually deal with his weight, as his body type was prone to being a little heavier than would serve him well for the NBA.
The Jazz had no roster reason to waive Carey Jr in regards to signing other players. Maybe he had a guarantee date upcoming? Maybe they just didnt like him? Either one of those.Never mind: hadn't seen the Paul Reed speculation.
I'd release Carey too, if it facilitated going after Reed. (Does anyone know if a team needs to have an open spot [less than 15 signed] to go after an RFA?)
You're allowed like 20 roster spots in the pre-season. I just can't imagine this is done for roster reasons, but I'm not an expert in that regard so maybe I'm wrong.Could be. Also might be the Jazz were freeing up a roster spot for future transactions.
Might be. Really tough to know. Was Carey on a two way or normal deal?You're allowed like 20 roster spots in the pre-season. I just can't imagine this is done for roster reasons, but I'm not an expert in that regard so maybe I'm wrong.
I think he was just a highly ranked HS guy Danny wanted in to see up close and he was unimpressed with what he saw.
