Default Former Jazzman Almond to play on NBADL team

Los Angeles Former Jazz first-round draft pick Morris Almond will join the NBA Development League's Springfield (Mass.) Armor today, Almond wrote in an e-mail Wednesday.

Almond set records in the D-League, scoring 53 and 51 points in games, while playing with the Utah Flash during his time with the Jazz.

He appeared in 34 games in two seasons with the Jazz, averaging 3.1 points in 8.6 minutes.

With Almond stuck behind Ronnie Brewer , Kyle Korver and C.J. Miles on the depth chart, the Jazz decided in October not to exercise the third-year option to bring back their 2007 first-round draft pick from Rice this season.

"He's got enough skills to play at this level, he's just got to work at it a little bit harder," Jazz coach Jerry Sloan said, adding that Almond still had room to grow in terms of sharing the ball and defense.

"Those are some of the things that I think he had a little problem with and probably has hurt him with some of the teams he's tried to be with. I wish him well."

Almond went to training camp with Orlando and saw limited action in four preseason games but did not make the Magic's roster. The Armor (0-4) are coached by Dee Brown and affiliated with Philadelphia, New York and New Jersey.

really liked the guy in orlando and wanted them to pick him up.
i think he'll beast in the dleague like before and hopefully get a call up
