Re: Training camp/pre-season!
The Jazz signed Foye in the offseason after a courtship that spanned more than two years. The guard has played for Minnesota, Washington and the Los Angeles Clippers, since he was drafted with the No. 7 pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. In 2010, Foye says he "was a step away from flying here and signing a contract."
Jazz Vice President and former General Manage Kevin O’Connor said a deal with Foye hinged on Carlos Boozer, who had not yet agreed to a deal with Chicago.
"He had a couple of really good offers out there," O’Connor said, "and we just told him, we liked him, ‘You’re somebody we would really like to consider, but we can’t make a decision right now.’"
Foye signed with Los Angeles, where he averaged 10.4 points over the last two seasons as a teammate of Jazz point guard Mo Williams.
