After a flurry of reports Friday that the Utah Jazz were on the verge of signing D-League All-Star Game MVP Travis Leslie to a contract, the Jazz failed to make a roster move on Saturday.
All 14 players with the team were in attendance at Madison Square Garden and Raja Bell, estranged and in Miami, had not been bought out.
Leslie, who plays for the Santa Cruz Warriors, was held out of Friday’s game at Sioux Falls, but no reason was given. Earlier in the day he posted messages to his Twitter account in which Jazz fans congratulated him on joining the team.
Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey has declined to comment on the reports.
