Asked if he’s ever seen anything like it, Burks said, "In pick-up ball, it happens a lot. But we’re out here playing a game and we get paid for it. There ain’t no need for that."
Jazz sorting out Orlando summer league roster
The Jazz will send a team to the Orlando Pro Summer League on July 9-13.
O’Connor hopes Utah’s summer roster will include "all our young kids. But we’ll have to wait and see exactly who that is."
Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter, Hayward and Burks seem to be strong possibilities for Orlando. So do Evans and DeMarre Carroll, if the Jazz can re-sign him.
If Jazz make playoffs, they could have Bell
The 12-year veteran is recovering from a left knee injury. He received a hyalgan injection April 2 and was ruled out indefinitely at the time.
Bell’s recovery has gone well and he resumed running and minor basketball-related activities Monday.
"If I can get into shape and situationally … I can help, I’m all up for it," said Bell, who hasn’t played since March 15, and also dealt with a groin injury this season.
Bell, 35, is averaging 6.6 points in 33 games (all starts), while shooting 47.9 percent from the field and 40.5 percent behind the 3-point line.
Bell said he understands Utah has a "good thing going" right now, and will allow Corbin to determine his role moving forward.
"They’re cooking, so you don’t want to get in there and screw everything up," Bell said.
