Jason Hart - Gone

UPDATE: From the Clippers site

"We are glad to have Jason back with us," Baylor said. "He played an important role for us when he was here previously, and we think he will be a valuable component this time as well."

Thanks Elgin!

Link to the Clips Nation thread about the trade.

=================================================================

Wow.  I didn't think we would be able to get this done.  Jason Hart has been traded back to the Clips for Brevin Knight.

Good move for the Jazz.  Hart never could get the offense going.  Maybe heading back to LA will allow him to play a bit better in a system he did okay in. 

This move also shows that the Jazz FO is basically admitting that the Jason Hart experiment was a disaster.  Hart unfortunately never seemed to fit in at Utah from the beginning.  He was named the backup PG out of training camp because of Hard Work (TM).  But even Hard Work (TM) can't make up for lack of skill.

So in comes Brevin Knight who is on the last year of his deal.  He's making $2M (about what Hart was getting).  The Jazz will be Knight's 10th team in 12 season!  I'd like to be his real estate agent.  He's a terrible shooter, but he's a very effective passer.  He'll give Price some good competition for the backup spot.  It should be Price's job, but it's good to know that if Price goes down, we have a competent replacement.

Knight has worn #22 for most of his career.  We already have a #22 (provided he doesn't give it up).

So it's out with one journeyman and in with another.  Hart never really seemed to warm up to the fans or to Utah.  He wasn't a jerk, but he didn't seem like he wanted to be here.  The Jazz must have been the only team that gave him a guaranteed two-year deal.  What a waste.  We still could have had Dee.

And let's hope this signifies some more moves to come.

Get those Jazz Hart jerseys before they're gone!
