Recommendation: Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey issued the following statement Friday regarding Bell, "I have spoken with Raja and his representative, Herb Rudoy, and we have mutually agreed that although Raja remains under contract, it is in the best interest of all parties that he not re-join the team next week when the Jazz begins training camp. We will now move forward focusing on Jazz basketball and our preparation for the upcoming season. We will have no further comment on this matter." It doesn't sound like the Jazz plan on releasing Bell any time soon.
