The Utah Jazz, roster down to 14 (SEE BELOW), goes ahead and grabs Jordan Hamilton and Joe Ingles off of waivers. Wow.

Yes, THAT Jordan Hamilton. For those who don't remember him, he's a 6'7 forward (24 years old) who has played for the Denver Nuggets and Houston Rockets in his three year NBA career. He is a former 1st round pick (#26 -- by Dallas) back in 2011 from Texas (where he played two seasons). He played six games this preseason with the Toronto Raptors, where he averaged 9.5 ppg, 3.0 rpg, and shot 54.5% from downtown in 18.3 mpg.

And yes, THAT Joe Ingles, another Australian forward who is 27 years old, and went undrafted back in 2009. Inglis has played for FC Barca Regal, and Maccabi Tel Aviv, but never in the NBA. He played 5 games this preseason with the Los Angeles Clippers, where he, well, somehow managed to play 7.5 mpg, and average hardly anything in that time.

Interesting.
