Jazz Make Roster Cuts

October 21st, 2010 | by Brian Henderson

Today, David Locke has reported that the Utah Jazz have cut Sundiata Gaines, Othyus Jeffers, Demetris Nichols and Ryan Thompson from their preseason roster, leaving 13 players with the team for the opening of the regular season next week. This means that Jeremy Evans has made the cut. What are your thoughts, Salt City land?

    Totally bummed that Gaines and Jeffers aren’t going to be around this year. I mean… not that I wanted anyone else to get cut, but how can you not appreciate those guys hard work to get here? And after Gaines huge Cavs shot last year… man. One of the best Jazz memories I’ve got.

  2. YB says:

    Not only did Evans make the cut, it seems like KOC pointed to Evans as outplaying everyone. That’s quite a compliment. It’s always sad to see anyone get cut from the team. But you’ve got to realize that EVERY single NBA players who make the team worked hard to get there, and the teams have to cut them despite that. Having said that, I think it was a good choice for the Jazz. I thought Gaines too frequently missed good passing opportunities to shoot/drive his own shot.

    No Sunny D this year? The kid is clutch! I know that Jazz fans adore him because he made that epic shot last year, but still, he comes through and makes big shots when we need them. I guess he’s just going to go back to the Idaho Stampede then? I hope they appreciate him up in Boise.

    Glad to see that Evans made it. I will be happy if the hype is even 50% true with him.

    If Sundiata hadn’t hit that one shot then nobody would even know who he is. He’s like-able but he’s a shoot first point guard who will win one game for you so that you forget about the 4 that he just lost for you. He’s exactly like Jannero Pargo, shoot shoot shoot and then shoot again forgetting about the 4 all-star calibre players on the court with you. Then the season is over and the team looks at the stats and says dang, his FG% was .346 and his 3PT% was .275??!!?!?…. Best of luck to him but he’d be better off in Phoenix or Golden State.
