A rehabbing Dwight Howard hits the practice court for the first time.
Raja Bell has yet to give the Utah Jazz a decision on a contract buyout as the two sides continue to work toward reaching an agreement.
Contrary to multiple reports last month that Bell had been refusing the buyout proposal from the Jazz, Bell’s agent confirmed that “he hasn’t rejected or accepted anything.”
Bell signed a three-year deal with the Jazz in 2010, but has made known his displeasure and desire to part ways since the middle of the 10-11 season.
Regarded as a quality outside shooter and a gritty defender, Bell, 35, has averaged almost 10 points on 40.6 percent from three-point range over his 12-year career with six different teams. Bell averaged 6.4 points last season, playing in 34 of 66 games.
The New York Knicks are interested in signing Sean Williams, who was recently waived by the Rockets.
While there has been speculation of the Knicks’ interest in Josh Howard, the team is more interested in signing a big man.
Kenyon Martin, Andray Blatche, Louis Amundson, Chris Andersen and D.J. White are also free agents, but searching for a deal above the veteran’s minimum.
