by March 10, 2013

At long last, the Raja Bell nightmare in Utah has come to an end. The Jazz severed the toxic relationship with the 36-year old guard. Per the team website and the Salt Lake Tribune: “he Utah Jazz announced today that the team has requested waivers on guard Raja Bell. Following the move, the Jazz roster now stands at 14. Bell (6-5, 210, Florida International) did not see action for the Jazz this season. […] The Jazz will pay Bell’s whole contract to create roster space. Have been expected to add D-League guard Travis Leslie since Friday … Despite being waived by Jazz today, Raja Bell ineligible for playoffs with another team. Needed to take buyout by March 1 … The Jazz never wanted to give Raja Bell an inch in this process. Felt it would reward him for bad behavior.”
