Jazz waive Bell

The SportsXchange

The Utah Jazz finally ended their unhappy relationship with veteran Raja Bell by releasing Bell on Sunday.

Bell has not been part of the Jazz team at all this season.

He had expressed his displeasure with his role and head coach Tyrone Corbin in the past, so the Jazz tried to buy out his contract or trade him while continuing to pay him.

The sides could never reach an agreement on a buyout, so he was waived. As a result, Bell will receive the full amount of his contract and is eligible to sign with another team once he clears waivers.

If he does sign with another team, he would not be able to play in the playoffs this season.

Bell, 36, averaged 6.4 points for the Jazz last season, when he played in 34 games, including 33 starts.
