Memphis gets Jackson; Jazz reunite with Ostertag
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Bonzi Wells is no longer Jerry West's headache.
2004-2005 SEASON STATISTICS GM PPG RPG APG FG% FT% 69 10.4 3.3 1.2 .441 .750
The trade was first reported by the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
The deal cannot be announced until the NBA finalizes its collective bargaining agreement.
Utah vice president of basketball operations Kevin O'Connor was asked about the reported deal while attending the Jazz's summer league game in Salt Lake City on Friday night. He told The Associated Press that there's been "agreement in principle about some things." But, he said, no trade has been completed.
West, the Grizzlies' president, had been trying to deal the 6-foot-7 Wells since he was removed from the squad during this past season's playoffs. The 29-year-old Wells averaged 10.4 points -- his lowest mark since the 1999-2000 campaign with the Portland Trail Blazers -- in 69 games for the Grizzlies last season.
The 32-year-old Jackson had been a valuable contributor off the Kings' bench in recent seasons but, slowed by numerous injuries, averaged just 12.0 points in 25 games this past campaign.
