Utah Jazz: McNeal signs for remainder of the season
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 6, 2013
McNeal has been active twice for the Jazz, but he has not appeared in a game. The Utah Jazz coach smiled at the mention of Jerel McNeal. After spending the season with the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League, any opportunity looks good to McNeal, who technically is a rookie despite having been signed to a 10-day contract with the Hornets in 2011. While he likely will remain the last guard off the Jazz bench, his prospects for playing got a major lift as the Jazz took a hit. So too, apparently, does the Jazz front office. Burks was one of three players, along with Enes Kanter and Kevin Murphy , to not travel with the Jazz to Oakland for Sunday’s game against the Golden State Warriors. But I’m just coming in, before and after practice, just working with the coaches, working with some of the other young guys on the team, just trying to stay ready."
