Jody Genessy: A big, 7-foot-2 German — center Tibor Pleiss — arrived in Salt Lake City late Saturday night, an airport source informed me. 7-foot-2 center Tibor Pleiss is in town to discuss his future with the Jazz. The fact he’s here obviously shows there’s mutual interest. Interesting tidbit about Tibor Pleiss. He was among top Europeans in free-throw shooting (85%). He’s an excellent shooter and big finisher. Tibor Pleiss could play for the German national team this summer. Nice Jazz connection, considering Alex Jensen will help coach that team. Haven’t been told if Tibor Pleiss will play with the Jazz in summer league, but he’s here so they might as well put him to work.
