Utah Jazz Likely to Call Up Dontell Jefferson

After the Jazz's trade of Eric Maynor to the Thunder, it seems that former Bobcat Dontell Jefferson--who was playing well in the D-League: 19-6A-5R-1.5S as the starting PG for the 7-5 Utah Flash--will get the callup to replace Maynor on the roster. This was a natural fit, as the Flash have been closely related to the Jazz for several years, sharing staff connections, practice space, and even some ticket deals. Tough, that the Bobcats can't afford to take on the loss to have a similar closely linked D-League franchise and have to ship their players off into a far-flung corner of the country if they want them developed and have to make the same trip to scout half the games of NBDL players with some knowledge of their system (if they run any of it at all without a Bobcats assignee on the team--the Celtics basically define how the team is run because of their closer proximity and heavier investment in them.)

Alexis Ajinca is getting playing time with the Maine Red Claws of the development league, but he's still not making shots: 3-of-13 in his first two games. I find that striking that a 7-footer would struggle that much to score against D-League big man. Almost every night Ajinca should have a significant height advantage.
