Kyle Weaver RumorsAll NBA Players
Kyle Weaver will continue his career in Italian Legadue Gold with Azzurro Napoli Basket. The Italian club announced the signing of the American for the coming season. Last season Weaver has played in D-League with Canton Charge and Austin Toros. Weaver has played in Europe with Spirou Charleroi and Alba Berlin.

Virtus Bologna is eyeing Kyle Weaver. The Italian team is still on the market looking for a 1-2 and a SF to add to the roster. Weaver, who spent last season in Germany with Alba Berlin averaging 10ppg in Eurocup and 9ppg in Bundesliga, has also an important NBA experience.
#UtahJazz’s #NBA Summer League roster includes: Blake Ahearn, Alec Burks, DeMarre Carroll, Enes Kanter, Kevin Murphy, Kyle Weaver, Stephen Graham, Cedric Simmons, John Millsap, Michael Stockton.

Spirou Basket officially announced today, April the 20th, the signing of swingman Kyle Weaver for the remainder of the season. Weaver, who played his college ball at Washington State University and was drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats in 2008, logged 68 games in the NBA between the 2008-2009 and the 2009-2010 seasons for the Oklahoma City Thunder, averaging about 19 minutes-per-game.
Kyle Weaver’s stay with the Utah Jazz and return to the NBA proved to be short-lived. The Jazz decided not to re-sign the versatile 6-foot-6 combo guard after his initial 10-day contract expired Saturday, as was first reported online by the Deseret News on Sunday. “It just didn’t work out,” Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said.
Kyle Weaver’s tenure with the Utah Jazz and return to the NBA proved to be short-lived. The Jazz decided not to re-sign the versatile 6-foot-6 combo guard after his initial 10-day contract expired Saturday. “It just didn’t work out,” Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. Weaver’s call-up from the D-League was necessary a week and a half ago when the Jazz were down to one point guard because of injuries to Devin Harris and Ronnie Price.
Kyle Weaver’s latest stint in the NBA might be over by the time you read this with your cereal today. Or, he hopes, it might end about the time you attack the fridge for a midnight snack Wednesday. The D-League call-up’s 10-day contract with the Utah Jazz expired Saturday, so he packed everything he brought with him from Austin to be ready for either scenario. “I don’t want this to happen (be cut),” he said at Saturday morning’s shootaround. “But you’ve got to expect the worst and hope for the best and prepare for what happens.”
Jody Genessy: Jazz still haven’t made a decision on Kyle Weaver. He isn’t needed quite as much now that Devin is back. Jazz have to decide by Sunday.
The Jazz are down to just 10 active players and have only nine healthy ones — center Francisco Elson isn’t 100 percent — but guard Kyle Weaver is unsure if he will end his season here. The Jazz signed him to a 10-day contract last Thursday. The deal expires Sunday, which bridges Utah’s two upcoming road games. Corbin said he doesn’t know whether Weaver will receive a second 10-day.
Guard Kyle Weaver has been a pleasant surprise since joining the Jazz a week ago out of the D-League. With the team down to only 10 players, including him, it’s likely he’ll be signed to stay with Utah through the end of the season. But because his 10-day contract expires after today’s game against San Antonio, the guard said he packed up all of the belongings he brought with him from Austin just in case.
Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor said that the organization planned to keep a close eye on the former D-Leaguer during his 10-day run, and Utah coach Tyrone Corbin has already been impressed with Weaver’s dedication and drive. The aggressive but smooth attack Weaver delivered against the Kings; his energy, confidence and professional delivery — all traits that Corbin has called for from better-paid players performing with the security of guaranteed contracts.
Former Jazz beatwriter Ross Siler noted on Twitter that he was rather impressed the Jazz would take a chance on Weaver so late in the season considering the team is currently 5.5 games out of the playoffs with seven games left to play. I’m impressed that the Jazz, with their luxury-tax payroll, would keep spending to take a look at Weaver in final weeks of lost season. It’ll cost the Jazz more than $100,000 in salary and luxury-tax payments for the 10 days Weaver is under contract. Again, I’m impressed. A lot of teams also would wait until Friday to make the signing, since the Jazz don’t play again until then.
Today the Utah Jazz announced they have signed former Thunder guard Kyle Weaver. Weaver is a 6’6 201 pound combo guard who played his college ball at Washington State. Weaver played portions of the last two season in the NBA with the Thunder totaling 68 games and has played this year in the D-League after being the final cut by the Bulls.
The Jazz plan to sign guard Kyle Weaver to a 10-day contract, calling the 6-foot-6, 200-pound player up from the NBA Development League’s Austin Toros. Utah general manager Kevin O’Connor announced the move Wednesday while the Jazz were practicing at the team workout facility. “We like his experience,” O’Connor said. “We like the fact that he can play a couple different positions.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers released under-performing Jawad Williams on Monday, but they may not leave his roster spot open for long. The Cavaliers are expected soon to host NBA D-League standouts Kyle Weaver, Othyus Jeffers, Patrick Ewing Jr. and Marcus Landry along with Antoine Wright and Alonzo Gee for a workout, according to league sources.

Some options include bringing back Hudson, signing free agent Jannero Pargo or Patrick Beverley, or plucking from the NBA Developmental League Mustafa Shakur or Kyle Weaver. But Wall is anxious to get back on the floor and assume his undisputed position within the team. “I’ve got to be the leader,” Wall said. “I’ve got to get here early, I got to be the last one to leave. I’ve got to speak up, talk in huddles. They are gong to hold me accountable for more things. I’m going to accept the challenge.”
“Coming here from the league (Oklahoma City the last two seasons), I wanted to be a leader and win,” Weaver said by phone from Des Moines just before Iowa beat the Dakota Wizards. “I wanted to make a statement to myself and the other guys that I came from the league, but I’m here to play and win and help guys, be a leader, watch tape, work with the coaches, be a complete player.”
“I figured coming here would be the best option for keeping my name out there,” said Weaver. “But knowing I’d get a chance to play was the biggest thing. It was a weird feeling (with the Bulls). All the coaches kept telling me I was doing great. There was so much positive feedback and I felt like I got better the longer I was there, so it stung a little bit. But at the end of the day it’s a business.
You might remember Weaver as the Bulls’ training camp invitee who was the final cut, and while the 6-6 guard concedes some disappointment about not being able to stick with the Bulls, he says it’s been that ol’ blessing in disguise as the Timberwolves, Kings, Clippers and Warriors have been sniffing around, as well as several European teams.
The Bulls are researching several candidates for a third-string point guard after waiving John Lucas III and Kyle Weaver earlier this week. The Bulls are one of only two NBA teams with just 13 players on their roster.
Despite the previous agreement between both parts, Kyle Weaver won’t play next season for Maccabi Tel Aviv. The 24-year-old American guard wants to try to earn a spot in an NBA team in a training camp, and the Israeli team has decided not to wait for him. Maccabi will focus now on landing a big man. To reach to a definitive agreement with Sofoklis Schortsanitis is right now the main target for Maccabi.
