Utah Jazz may still be entertaining offers: The Downbeat #1671

Utah Jazz: Contract hold-up keeps Trey Lyles out of first summer league practice | The Salt Lake Tribune

Trey Lyles’ professional debut is on hold. The rookie forward, picked 12th overall in last month’s draft, did not participate in the Utah Jazz’s first summer league practice Friday morning because he has yet to sign his contract. Not because he doesn't want to, but because it hasn't been offered yet.

And This Contract delay keeps Utah Jazz rookie Trey Lyles out of practice | Deseret News

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey says to blame him, not the team's rookie lottery pick, for his delayed start.this

DL "Just administratively we need, for lack of better description, cap float time to be able to have all the conversations that we need to have," Lindsey said. "Therefore, you can't sign the contract because as soon as you sign it … we've reduced our cap flexibility."

.This The above quote, coupled with the surprise call earlier this week would lead some (myself included) to believe that the Utah Jazz are still entertaining trade/salary dump offers. They would be stupid not to. The only problem with keeping the cap space open, is that Lyles will be out for part/all Summer League, Fans will have to wait. However, if we can improve our team or our finances by sitting a guy for a week or so, I am all for it.

Congrats to @TreyMambaLyles on being the 12th pick of the #NBADraft by the @utahjazz #SucceedandProceed
