Tinsley’s 10th NBA season has seen him start 32 games and then unable to get off the bench in 22 others. In Tinsley’s mind, though, that is small potatoes compared with other events in his life. "My issue was just the off-the-court stuff," he said. "Anytime you can overcome anything in life it should make you a better person, especially if [there’s] something that you love to do. And that’s basketball." Salt Lake Tribune

The Jazz have 15 games remaining in this season, not counting the potential for a playoff run. It’s unclear how long Tinsley’s career will extend beyond this season. What is evident, though, is that two years with one of the most straight-edged franchises in the NBA, one with a serious aversion to controversy, resurrected the career of one of the NBA’s bad boys. "Coming to an organization like this," Tinsley said, "usually they wouldn’t sign guys like me, so they say. But who is that guy? Get to know that guy first, then make the judgment."

A smiling Kanter's explanation: Tinsley supposedly told him popcorn has special healing powers. Tinsley joked back that Kanter acts like he was born in a barn. It was natural to put some corn in that particular trough, right? Deseret News

Mark Deeks: Jamaal Tinsley's contract is completely unguaranteed, and has been for the whole 10 months I've had it listed erroneously. Sorry about that. Twitter @MarkDeeksNBA
