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.
Former Utah State wide receiver Alex Wheat will transfer to Coastal Carolina, according to a source. He will be immediately eligible
after 8 days in vegas can't wait to hoop tonight at 24
So many college conferences having their football media days. Can't wait for the NFL Lite season to get started. Rutgers is in the Big 10?

Tip Off returns Monday Morning. Will be a mid morning post 9 am show. Not sure exact time
The All-NBA Summer League teams were voted on by a panel of media members (most of whom are certainly bitter to still be in Las Vegas).
Jazz C Rudy Gobert was named to All-NBA Summer League second team. He averaged 11.8 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks. http://t.co/dSX8wc6JDn
Now an assistant at Sacramento, Tyrone Corbin will coach for a (summer league) championship Monday vs. Houston.
So I guess this is the Jazz's "Test Pattern" hat... http://t.co/FxfTJkb2Yx
Los Angeles til Tuesday
Burks has two major steps under Synder - pick and roll proficiency and catching ball without immediate dribble.
Burks was better in isolation (.96 pts per) than pick and roll (.75 pts per) but ran pick and roll 33% of possessions and isolation 8%
Some Alec Burks notes on his b-day. Shot 43% on spot up 3's last year.
Did anybody ever figure out what the dress code is to attend Alec Burks' 23rd birthday party? Asking for a friend. http://t.co/DVYOccY5Pd
Filming started for a TV cop show starring Steve Novak and Jeremy Lin. Working titles: Kojak Novak or Lin & Order. http://t.co/buyskK96Aj
Murry played 51 games for the Knicks last year. Averaged 2.7 PPG.
Looking to round out roster, a possible FA target, per Jazz source, is G/F Toure' Murry. But sounds like Murry is waiting on Miami first.
Utah I'm on the way
Final note: Congrats to Utah native/jockey Cody Jensen. Won $1M Rainbow Derby aboard Houdini today at Ruidoso.
PCL fnal: Las Vegas beats Salt Lake, 6-2. Bees owned a 2-0 lead w/one out and nobody on in the top of the eighth.
It's Huston Street, of course. Apologies all around ...
Thanks to bill frei for the new twitter header. Much appreciated. Tip Off returns monday
Wrapping up my week in Las Vegas. Fun seeing young players, writers I admire, enthusiastic Jazz fans and, amazingly, some cash in my wallet.
just got compared to Danny Devito....my life is complete
I think the Angels gave up a lot for Houston Street, probably because I remember his last seasons at Coors Field instead of the Padre years.
Johnson more vocal on non-balk call in 9th that would have enabled the Bees to tie Las Vegas, 7-7: "Oh my gosh, that was bad."
Salt Lake manager Keith Johnson on Houston Street trade: "I haven't heard anything. When the Angels announce it, that's when I'll hear it."
Personal highlight of the night was walking by T-Wolves bench during a break and getting a big smile and a handshake from Kyrylo Fesenko.
DMX used to be that dude
Rudy Gobert biggest winner of summer league. Will open camp with a rotation spot because of SL play.
