Jazz to invite Gilder to preseason camp
Veteran forward Trey Gilder is expected to compete for a roster spot during the Jazz's upcoming training camp, The Salt Lake Tribune learned on Wednesday. Utah's regular-season roster is currently set at 15 players entering camp, which is the maximum allowed by the NBA once the regular season begins. Veteran guard Raja Bell isn't expected play for the team or participate during camp, though, and his long-delayed buyout with the Jazz has yet to be resolved. The 6-foot-9, 185-pound Gilder averaged 19.2 points and 7.7 rebounds in 34 games (31 starts) last season for Sioux Falls, an NBA Development League team. Gilder, 27, was on the Jazz's 2011-12 training-camp roster. He was cut from the club before the regular season started, though. Gilder began the 2009-10 NBA season with the Memphis Grizzlies, appearing in two games before being waived. He spent portions of the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons in the D-League with Colorado, Maine and Albuquerque, and was a 2010 D-League All-Star selection. The Dallas native spent the 2010-11 season with the Sydney Kings in the Australian National Basketball League, averaging 13.2 points and 5.5 rebounds. The Jazz are expected to hold their annual media day Oct. 1, with camp starting Oct. 2. Twitter: @tribjazz
