Jazz host free agent mini-camp
The Utah Jazz will host a free agent mini-camp this week, bringing in 24 players, most of whom played last year in the D-League.
The camp, which begins Tuesday afternoon and runs through Thursday, will be used as an opportunity to fill out a summer league roster, training camp roster and, potentially, spots with the Jazz when the season begins.
Among the players who will work out for the Jazz are Travis Leslie, who spent time with the team in March, but who was not signed to a second 10-day contract. Other notable players include former Minnesota forward Lazar Hayward, who played at Marquette with Jazz guard Jerel McNeal and former Jazz guard Wesley Matthews. Harouna Mutombo, the 6-foot-5 nephew of Dikembe Mutombo, will also participate, as will former Phoenix Suns center Luke Zeller.
The Jazz are also in the process of working out potential draft picks. They will hold a pre-draft workout, players to be announced, Wednesday.
