According to a one-line note from NBA columnist Mitch Lawrence in Sunday's New York Daily News, "Looking for a big man who can rebound and guard — something its own (starting center) Mehmet Okur is not always inclined to do — the Utah Jazz has targeted the Indiana Pacers' Jeff Foster for a potential deal."
The Jazz indeed have had interest in Foster for some time, but there is no current reason whatsoever to believe a deal to pry the 6-foot-11 center from the Pacers could be put together this month.
Jazz coach Jerry Sloan was asked about potential deals involving Utah — though not specifically anything about Foster — just last Friday. He suggested then that nothing is in the works and that he didn't anticipate any major deals being made by the club in February.
