Good news for former Blue Devil Marques Bolden as the big guy has a deal with the Utah Jazz and a reasonable shot at nailing down the last roster spot.

Bolden, who had a two-way deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, never moved passed it to a full-time roster spot and they waived him in February.

It won't necessarily matter, but in Utah he’ll be coached by fellow Brotherhood member Quin Snyder.

It won’t be easy sticking though. Utah has Rudy Gobert, but also Hassan Whiteside and Udoka Azubuike. Nobody is taking Gobert’s spot but pushing past Whiteside and Azubuike won’t be easy either. But Bolden is a hard worker and that can’t be overlooked.
