The Utah Jazz on Wednesday traded reserve point guard Jason Hart back to the Los Angeles Clippers for veteran guard Brevin Knight.

It was a straight up, one-for-one deal.

Knight played 64 games for the Clippers last season, averaging 4.4 points and 4.6 assists. The Stanford University product has played 11 years in the NBA with stops with Cleveland, Atlanta, Memphis, Phoenix, Washington, Milwaukee, Charlotte and the Clippers.

Hart lost his backup point guard job last season to Utah Valley product Ronnie Price. He returns to Los Angeles, where he played 23 games for the Clippers in the 2006-07 season.
