Utah Jazz to sign Travis Leslie
"Marc J. Spears @SpearsNBAYahoo
Signing of @DLeagueWarriors G Travis Leslie by the Jazz is expected to take place Saturday, sources tell Y! Sports. Unsure who will be cut".
"Alex Kennedy @AlexKennedyNBA
It sounds like Raja Bell will be the player the Jazz waive to make room for D-League call-up Travis Leslie. Leslie will join team tomorrow."
Travis Leslie was the 47th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft and was the MVP of the D-League All-Star game. Leslie is averaging 16.1 PPG, 7.4 RPG, 2.1 APG, 1.4 SPG, 51.5% FG and 36.5% 3PFG.
Dude should put all his effort into defense. Bestcase he could find a tony allen type role with this team. That's personally what I would like to see. What is his character like, work ethic and all?
why don't the jazz get their own damn dleague team? every team should have their own dleague team. no they have to play scavenger and get some guy on the santa cruz warriors. leslie will probably play a diminished role on the jazz despite his dleague success.
WAS THEIR D LEAGUE TEAM, up until last season, now they are affiliated with Idaho actually i think it's the reno big horns. Leslie was a dleague all start shooting around 4 3'ss a game shooting around 39%. If Leslie can get his shit together I see a mini Shandon Anderson role with this Utah Jazz Team,
