Jazz do not re-sign guard Kyle WeaverPosted by Inside Hoops
Utah Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor announced today that the team has elected not to re-sign guard Kyle Weaver to a second 10-day contract. Following the transaction, the Jazz roster now stands at 14 players.
Weaver was originally signed to a 10-day contract on March 31 and appeared in five games for the Jazz (all as a reserve), averaging 5.6 point, 2.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 13.8 minutes per game. He scored a career-high 19 points (7-11 FG) with three assists and two rebounds in 30 minutes at Sacramento on April 3.
Originally selected by the Charlotte Bobcats in the second round (38th overall) of the 2008 NBA Draft, Weaver (6-6, 201, Washington State) averaged 15.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists in 30 games (24 starts) for the NBA Development League’s Austin Toros and Iowa Energy this season prior to being called up by the Jazz. At the time, Weaver became the NBA’s 17th D-League Call-Up and 14th different player promoted to the NBA this season. He was also the seventh D-League Call-Up in Jazz history, joining Rusty LaRue (2000-01), Mikki Moore (2003-04), Louis Amundson (2006-07), Sundiata Gaines (2009-10), Othyus Jeffers (2009-10) and Marcus Cousin (2010-11).
