By the time you read this, Joel Bolomboy could be a member of the Utah Jazz — or maybe not. He’s been passed back and forth between Jazz and the Salt Lake City Stars — their D-League team — like a human hot potato. For the record, he’s been called up to the Jazz or sent back down to the Stars 33 times so far this season, some times twice in the same day. Bolomboy is a 6-foot-9 office temp. “Sometimes I wake up in the morning, and I have no clue where I am or who I’m with,” he says.
Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey, Mike Wells (Bolomboy’s position coach) and Taylor meet weekly to discuss, among other things, what to do with Bolomboy that week. “It’s been a fun process,” says Bolomboy. “I get an opportunity to play and to get better, and when I’m with the Jazz I try to learn and pick up things from teammates, then come down here and test it out. Sometimes we experiment with things they want me to do, whether it’s running a play for me or posting up or shooting a three.”
