Utah Jazz: Former players Kosta Koufos, Jarron Collins make NBA rosters
Jeffrey D. Allred, Deseret News
The NBA released the opening-day rosters for all 30 teams ahead of tonight's three-game opener, and it included good news for a couple of former Utah Jazz players.
Center Kosta Koufos made the final cut with Minnesota after being traded to the Timberwolves in July as part of the deal that brought Al Jefferson to Utah.
Jarron Collins, another ex-Jazz big man on the bubble, also survived the player slashing with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Interestingly, the Jazz were one of only two teams that are carrying the league minimum of 13 players into the 2010-11 season. The other 13-man team? The Chicago Jazz, er, Bulls, who have three former Utah players on the roster, including Carlos Boozer, Kyle Korver and Ronnie Brewer.
Seventeen of the 30 NBA teams currently have the maximum of 15 players on their rosters.
