NBA: Center Brian Butch will join Utah Jazz camp
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

Veteran center Brian Butch is expected to attend training camp with the Jazz.

The former Wisconsin big man will likely compete with Trey Gilder and Darnell Jackson, among others, for a roster spot.

Butch, 27, averaged 15.3 points and 9.8 rebounds for the NBA Development League's Bakersfield Jam during the 2011-12 season.

The 6-foot-11, 240-pound Butch wasn't drafted after leaving Wisconsin in 2008.

Utah's roster is at 15 heading into camp. Second-round pick Kevin Murphy must make the team, though, while veteran guard Raja Bell isn't expected to play for Utah this season.
