Dee Bost Rumors

All NBA Players

The Jazz brought guards Dee Bost and Kevin Murphy into training camp with the idea that they could end up back with the team’s D-League affiliate in Idaho. After Bost and Murphy were waived on Friday, their futures remain somewhat uncertain, though the Jazz would like them back in Idaho if they don’t land somewhere else. “We appreciate all the energy and the work they gave us in camp,” Snyder said. “Both of them did a good job. Right now it’s just competitive. I think both of them have a chance to be NBA players. Hopefully they’ll pursue that in Boise.”

With a month still to go before training camp begins, the Jazz have already started filling their fall roster, inking Bost and former Notre Dame standout Jack Cooley to deals last week. With 13 guaranteed contracts already in place, finding a spot on the crowded roster won’t be an easy task. But all Bost wants is a chance — and Jazz officials say he’ll get it. “The last roster spot will more than likely, unless something unusual comes up, we’ll keep that open for competition. And maybe the 14th spot,” said Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey. “We’ll create an atmosphere of competition. We think that’s a good thing.”

After speaking with a source close to DleagueDigest.com, Portland is likely to send EJ Singler, Dee Bost, and Richard Howell to Idaho for the start of the season, allowing Portland the decision of keeping Freeland. Will Freeland ultimately find a spot on Portland’s depth chart? The forthcoming set of preseason games, will play a large role in determining Freeland’s future with Portland.
