Jazz have officially met their quota of people we don't know.
Carrick Felix basically did the Junior Jazz tour traveling around to play Utah's junior colleges while at CSI.
Isn't there something wrong when a high school QB transfers in search of playing time?
One Utah tie for new Jazz player Carrick Felix? His College of Southern Idaho Golden Eagles went 2-2 against SLCC in 2009-10. Now you know.
Jazz has acquired Carrick Felix, 2015 2nd round pick & cash from the Cavs in exchange for John Lucas III, Erik Murphy & Malcolm Thomas
Jazz admit the trade: Utah acquired Carrick Felix, a 2015 2nd round pick, cash from Cavs for John Lucas III, Erik Murphy & Malcolm Thomas.
The pick will be a 2015 second-round pick.
Former Carrick Felix coach Eric Musselman says Felix is "he never had a bad day. He is always smiling. He makes Jan and Feb practices good"
And when I say you I'm mean we, of course.
My column on everything you knew about Carrick Felix before this trade:
Easiest way to look at it - Jazz traded 3 players who weren't going to be on roster for a player who will, a 2nd rounder and a million
Guys often complain no place to get haircut in SLC - that problem is over Carrick Felix was team barber at Southern Idaho
There is a rule of aggregation. Cavaliers can't turn all three former Jazz players together in another deal until some time has passed.
The Jazz were obviously instrumental in getting Andre Iguodala to Golden State last year. Now helping to get Love to Cleveland?
Can confirm Jazz have traded John Lucas, Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy to Cleveland. Woj (who else?) had it first.
Trevor Booker: "When I told people I was coming to Utah, they were like, 'Where's Utah?' … But from what I see, I think I'll love the city."

25 years ago Bill Shoemaker rode at Wyoming Downs (July 22, 1989). Here, he's aboard The Irish Devil. http://t.co/DoSXXYflwl
Others: H. Barnes, J. Butler, Draymond Green, Hardaway Jr, Tobias Harris, McDermott, Oladipo, Ma. & Mi. Plumlee, Smart, Waiters, C. Zeller.
Here's the list of players that will be on the USA Select team with Jazz point guard Trey Burke: http://t.co/8FbniysFZi
By the way, Booker meets the press in Salt Lake later this afternoon. Anything (within reason) you want to know?
Congrats to Coach Corbin
Thought Trey Burke might see an abbreviated summer league after heavy mins last year. Nope. Little time for rest now. Will be w/ USA Select.
As a reminder, Gordon Hayward is among the American players who will try out for Team USA's 12-man roster later this month in Las Vegas.
Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors were on the USA Select team in 2012, helping prep the U.S. squad for the Olympics.
Jazz point guard Trey Burke will participate on the USA Select Team, his camp confirmed. The squad will prep Team USA for World Cup action.
Contracts become guaranteed for Ian Clark (fully) and Erik Murphy (partially) on Aug. 1. I'm told the Jazz won't make a decision until then.
Jeremy Evans won't have to shoulder the entire Junior Jazz tour this year. Ian Clark will also do a week's worth of dates.
Just talked to NBA league exec who told me he thinks there "could be 90 max deals in this league." Probably a stretch but point taken
How Booker's deal is structured means if Jazz like him they keep him for 4.8 in year 2 but if they need space they can renounce him for 250K
I alluded to this in earlier post but Booker deal looks completely different knowing just 250K 2nd year is guarnateed
The annual Junior Jazz Tour will span three weeks, four states, 42 cities, 4,000-plus miles and reach more than 2,000 boys and girls.
That might answer people's question about whether the Jazz will be keeping guard Ian Clark past his Aug. 1 guaranteed date.
Media will get a chance to interview new Jazz player Trevor Booker, a smallish big, on Tuesday afternoon.
Just had an in-depth exchange with a copyeditor about using "big" as an object instead of as an adjective to describe a power forward. Fun.
Trevor Booker's contract with the Jazz is a two-year, $10 million deal, but the second season isn't fully guaranteed.
Jazz believe PF Trevor Booker will give interior toughness and will work well within Snyder's system as a big who can drive with the ball.
