The Trail Blazers waived guards Diante Garrett and Darius Morris Saturday. Both saw limited action during the preseason and neither played in Friday's preseason win.
The Raptors sent Steve Novak to the Jazz in a salary-clearing move Saturday, according to Yahoo.com. Novak, who has $7.2 million remaining over the last two years of his contract, was traded to the Jazz for Diante Garrett and his non-guaranteed deal, as well as a second-round draft pick. According to the report, Garrett will be waived by the Raptors after he is acquired.
Jazz guard Diante Garrett scored a career-high 15 points on 6 of 9 shooting, including 3 of 4 shooting from behind the arc, in his team's 109-86 win over the Suns Wednesday. It was just the third time this season Garrett scored in double digits, and he rounded out his career-best performance with two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 21 minutes of action. He has averaged 3.6 points and 14.8 minutes over 46 games played.
The Jazz are expected to sign point guard Diante Garrett from the NBA D-League to replace recently-waived Jamaal Tinsley, according to the Deseret News. Garrett played 19 games for the Suns last year and averaged 2.1 points on 32.7 percent shooting from the field.
The Thunder waived guards Diante Garrette and Rodney McGruder Friday, putting their roster at 14 players heading into the season.
