SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Jazz will open training camp Tuesday with 19 players on their roster, including disgruntled guard Raja Bell, though the team and his agent have mutually agreed the 35-year-old should not attend.
The team is allotted 20 spots for camp but must trim its roster to 15 before the regular season starts.
Bell is taking up one of those spots. He is scheduled to make $3.5 million in the final year of his contract but has publicly feuded with head coach Tyrone Corbin and indicated the relationship had suffered "irreparable damage."
Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey Friday said the two sides mutually agreed it was in the "best interest" of both parties that Bell not rejoin the team.
Efforts to finalize a buyout have not been successful.
