Travis Leslie is leaving JSF Nanterre to join ASVEL Villeurbanne, according to Le Progres. Leslie was signed by Nanterre who replaced him with Sergii Gladyr.
In addition, JSF Nanterre could make another adjustment in its roster: Travis Leslie, whose profile does not fully fit with the expectations of the staff, could leave the team. “Travis does not fit quite the profile that we wanted. This is not a problem about his game, but a profile problem that does not allow us today to be where we want to be,” explained Nanterre head coach Pascal Donnadieu.

As Santa Cruz gears themselves up for what surely promises to be a steady postseason run, they’ve reeled two players who have both played roles in their success back to town. Travis Leslie and Jeremy Tyler each return to the D-League Warriors hoping to give the team a helpful boost.
Most Jazz fans probably didn’t know Leslie was on the team because he never played a minute during his short stay with the franchise. The 6-foot-4 Leslie had been signed to a 10-day contract March 10 after averaging 16.1 points and 7.4 rebounds for the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA’s D-League, but was released Tuesday morning. “He did nothing wrong. We made sure he understood that,’’ said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. “He was great. He appreciated the opportunity to come in and for us to get a look at him and our franchise and see if it’s a good fit. He’s a good guy and hopefully down the road we’ll get to know him a lot better.’’
The Jazz signed Travis Leslie to a 10-day contract on March 10, meaning it will expire Wednesday. Corbin likes what he’s seen from Leslie, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard who averaged 16.1 points and 7.4 rebounds with Santa Cruz in the D-League before coming to Utah. “Great worker, good size,” Corbin said. “We haven’t gotten a feel for him in a game, whether he is only a ‘2’ or if he can play some ‘3.’ But he’s very good at attacking the rim, and I think he can be a good defender with his body size. He’s showed himself well in practice.” Will the Jazz re-sign Leslie? “We’ll evaluate it,” Corbin said. “I like what I’ve seen.”
Teammates whooped and cheered for the 22-year-old Leslie. Like orphans left behind when a happy family adopts a friend, they celebrated, but no doubt wondered when their time would come. And when it did, what would they do with it? That is the question now facing Leslie, who signed a 10-day contract with the Jazz on Sunday, filling the roster spot created when they waived Raja Bell. “He gets 10 days there to leave an impression on the coaches and the front office,” said Bjorkgren.
Steve Luhm: Newly signed Travis Leslie participated in his first shootaround with Utah. Drafted by Clips last year. Mo Williams said he was “my rook.”
The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has signed guard Travis Leslie of the NBA Development League’s Santa Cruz Warriors to a 10- day contract, marking the NBA’s 24th D-League Call-Up of the 2012-13 season.
The Utah Jazz’s year-long standoff with guard Raja Bell came to an end Sunday when they waived the 36-year-old. The move opens up a roster spot for the Jazz, which according to a league source they will use to sign D-League All-Star Game MVP Travis Leslie to a 10-day contract. The Jazz’s interest in Leslie was first reported on Friday by Yahoo! Sports.
The source described Leslie’s callup from the Santa Cruz Warriors as “imminent” but that it was unclear whether it would happen on Sunday.
Bill Oram: League source confirms earlier reports that Jazz signing Travis Leslie to a 10 day contract is imminent, but it may not be today.
Though the Jazz haven’t confirmed a potential move, Leslie tweeted this from his personal account (@FlightLeslie23) after reports hit the Internet on Friday: “Glad to be given this opportunity. Couldn’t be here without the man above #GodIsGood.” Asked if he addressed his team about possible lineup changes, Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said the squad has to focus on who’s currently on the team and the task at hand. “We can’t worry about any changes,” Corbin said. “We are where we are. Whatever happens, happens.”
Marc J. Spears: Signing of @DLeagueWarriors G Travis Leslie by the Jazz is expected to take place Saturday, sources tell Y! Sports. Unsure who will be cut.
