SALT LAKE CITY — Right before practice Tuesday, Travis Leslie made the rounds shaking hands and saying his goodbyes to Jazz coaches and players.
Some Jazz fans probably never knew about Leslie because he never played a minute during his short stay with the franchise.
The 6-foot-4 Leslie had been signed to a 10-day contract on March 10 after averaging 16.1 points and 7.4 rebounds for the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA’s D-League, but was released Tuesday morning.
“He did nothing wrong. We made sure he understood that,’’ said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. “He was great, he appreciated the opportunity to come in and for us to get a look at him and our franchise and see if it’s a good fit. He’s a good guy, and hopefully down the road we’ll get to know him a lot better.’’
Leslie was originally selected by the Los Angeles Clippers in the 2011 NBA Draft after playing for three years at the University of Georgia. He was the ninth D-League call-up in Jazz history.
