The Blazers also have camp invitees Darius Morris and Diante Garrett, both of whom are point guards and give the team more options in scrimmages. Both players have had stints on NBA rosters, and Morris played the game's final 4:46 Thursday, when the outcome was decided. "That's why they were brought in," Stotts said. "As has been noted, we don't have a prototypical third point guard right now, and so they were brought in to play that position." Portland has 15 players with guaranteed contracts, so for either Morris or Garrett to make the opening-day roster, the Blazers would either have to waive a player or execute a trade that would free up a roster spot. "They're here to try to make the team," Stotts said. Oregonian

The Utah Jazz announced today that the team has acquired forward Steve Novak and the rights to New York’s 2017 second round draft pick from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for guard Diante Garrett. Novak (6-10, 235, Marquette), the sixth-most accurate three-pointer shooter in NBA history (min. 250 made), is an eight-year veteran who owns averages of 5.0 points and 1.4 rebounds in 13.0 minutes over 414 career games with Houston, L.A. Clippers, Dallas, San Antonio, New York and Toronto. His career .432 (548-1,268) three-point percentage is second only to Golden State’s Stephen Curry (.440) among all active players, while his career .892 free throw percentage would rank fourth if he had enough attempts to qualify.

Tuesday was the deadline to cut players on nonguaranteed contracts before those deals become fully guaranteed for the season, so the Jazz opted to whittle their maxed-out roster to 14 players. That left Harris looking for a new gig, while point guard Diante Garrett and shooting guard Ian Clark survived the cut. “To his credit, he did everything we asked him to do,” Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. “Great locker room guy, great teammate for the guys. It’s just unfortunate it’s part of the business that we had to make a decision.” Deseret News

Not long after telling media about how he learned of his new opportunity while shopping at Wal-Mart late Monday night, Garrett scored seven points, had five assists and played a key role in Utah’s first win of the 2013-14 season. “I was happy all night (Wednesday) night,” Garrett said, smiling before Thursday’s practice. “I won’t forget it.” Neither will his new team and fans. “Everybody in this locker room knew what he was capable of doing,” Jazz small forward Marvin Williams said. “He really stepped up. He was a monster (Wednesday). He was huge.” Deseret News
