The Utah Jazz may not re-sign Al Jefferson when he becomes a free agent next month, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
Stein tweeted that there is a "rising sense out there" that the team will let Jefferson walk. Jefferson recently completed a five-year $65 million deal that he signed with Minnesota before being traded to the Jazz.
According to Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD, Jefferson was expecting to sign elsewhere next season. Jefferson, who made $15 million last season, was the highest paid player on the Jazz roster.
Earlier this month, Greg Dickerson of Comcast Sportsnet reported that the Boston Celtics, who drafted Jefferson 15th overall in 2004, had discussed the possibility of trading for Jefferson and Paul Milsap before the deadline.
Eight Jazz players are scheduled to become free agents this summer. The team is projected to have the second most cap space available this offseason, behind the Atlanta Hawks.
