The Jazz have officially waived camp invitee Dwayne Jones, the team announced today in a press release. Utah had been carrying the maximum 20 players, so the release of Jones reduces the club’s roster to 19.
Jones, 30, signed a contract with the Warriors at the end of the regular season and very briefly appeared in a pair of playoff games for the team. However, he hasn’t appeared in a regular season contest since the 2009/10 season with the Suns.
With 12 guaranteed contracts on their books and Ian Clark ($200K guaranteed) a strong bet to make the team, the Jazz still have six players competing for roster spots. While Jones is no longer in the mix, Brian Cook, Mike Harris, Justin Holiday, Lester Hudson, Scott Machado, and Dominic McGuire continue to make their case for a longer look.
