Since a report July 9th that Raja Bell had agreed to a buyout with the Jazz, negotiations hit a snag and the two sides still haven't finalized any parting of ways. Buyout discussions are continuing, Bell's agent Herb Rudoy recently told Shams Charania of RealGM.com, saying that reports that his client had rejected a proposal from the team are untrue.

Bell is set to make $3.48MM in the last year of a three-year contract this season, but he hasclashed with Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin, whom he referred to as "unprofessional." Bell requested a trade back in May. Though he started 33 of the 34 contests in which he appeared, the veteran shooting guard saw just 23.4 minutes per game this past season, his fewest since 2002/03. He put up 6.4 points and 1.1 assists per game, also his lowest numbers since 2002/03.

We heard in July that six other teams were interested in Bell, who turns 36 next week, but most of those clubs have probably moved on since then. It's unlikely he'd make nearly as much as he would in the final season of his contract with the Jazz, so it behooves Bell to get as much out of the buyout as he can. He expressed his admiration for former GM Kevin O'Connor earlier this summer, but O'Connor has since been promoted to executive vice president of basketball operations, with Dennis Lindsey taking his place as GM. Rudoy's comments to Charania indicate that Lindsey is now the person negotiating the buyout for the Jazz.

If Bell joined the Lakers, they'd be so set. They'd have a SOLID twelve man rotation.

Yet, most likely, I see Bell joining a team like the 76ers.

I agree with SportsFan! Bell with the Lakers is just perfect for them!

Bell to the Sixers again? Nice. The Lakers need a good back up on defense, though.

In terms of chemistry wise, it would be a hit or miss for the Lakers. He could get along with Nash, but he could also clash with Kobe due to history. I'd much rather see Barbosa with the Lakers instead of Bell

Bell, possibly the most frustrating player on the Jazz for the past season or so. NEVER showed any above average "kobe-stopper" defense, seemed like more-often then not, he would get torched by any decent guard.

I thought Jazz fans on the Internet were extinct.
