Don't look now, but the Utah Jazz might be the first team in NBA history with a backcourt made up of two players from Florida International University.
The Jazz plan to sign veteran shooting guard Raja Bell to a two-year contract before the start of training camp next week, The Salt Lake Tribune learned Monday.
Just as Jazz point guard Carlos Arroyo did, Bell played collegiately at Florida International before reaching the NBA. He spent part of the 2000-01 season and the entire 2001-02 season with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Bell played last season in Dallas, where he averaged 5.7 points in 15.6 minutes for the Mavericks. He made 46.2 percent on his three-point shots with the Mavs and helped them reach the Western Conference finals.
