“The coaches here are amazing,” he told Basketball Insiders. “They give you a lot of confidence.” The contrast was stark to his previous home. “In New Orleans, it was a tough place for me, just because the coach [Monty Williams], he didn’t really give me a shot, you know what I mean? Even if I was playing, if I screwed up one time or anything like that, he would just take me right out. Here, Coach [Snyder], he’ll come to you… it’s just a different type of coaching. More player-friendly, for sure.”
The Jazz entered training camp with 13 players – two below the regular-season roster limit – with guaranteed salaries. That seemingly made it unlikely three Utah players who belong in the NBA – Jeff Withey ($200,000 guaranteed), Elijah Millsap (unguaranteed) and Bryce Cotton (unguaranteed) – would all survive the preseason. But the Jazz cleared a spot by waiving Grant Jerrett, whose minimum salary was fully guaranteed fro this season.
