Jazz hopeful Bost looks to avoid return to Boise

< Previous Page

For former Stampede coach Mike Peck, the deal is the shot at the NBA he was surprised Bost didn’t receive during last season.

"Especially early on, I kind of thought after getting off to the good start we had and the way he was playing coming out of camp with Portland, I honestly though he did as much as he could do to at least earn a 10-day with somebody, somewhere," Peck said. "But I’m not in the front office of those NBA teams."

Still, only a small part of Bost’s deal is guaranteed, sources said the guard faces unfavorable odds and a return to Idaho could be in his future.

Should Bost find himself back in Boise, Peck’s advice to his former player would be the same thing he told him last year.

"I think in today’s game and society everything is so now. I want it now. If I don’t get it now I’m moving on," Peck said. "My whole message to our guys is just stay the course. Have that stick-to-itiveness where you hunker down. It may not happen today, tomorrow, in a month. It may not happen this season. That’s OK. It takes time. It will happen.

"His production and performance clearly shows he belongs. To get a shot and an opportunity is obviously the goal for anybody. Dee is clearly on that path."
