Denzel Valentine: Double-double off bench

Valentine logged 23 points (6-14 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 17 rebounds and eight assists across 28 minutes during Thursday's 138-126 win over the Fort Wayne Mad Ants. Despite recently signing with the Maine Celtics and playing off their bench Thursday, Valentine is proving to be an excellent option for them. He demonstrated such by logging a double-double in a depth role. After recording 39 points and 25 rebounds across two games with Maine, there is an increased chance Valentine becomes one of the team's regular starters soon.

Denzel Valentine: Contract expires

The Jazz didn't re-sign Valentine after his 10-day contract expired Thursday, Keith Smith of reports. Utah signed Valentine on Jan. 10 while the team's depth was tested by several COVID-19 and injury-related absences, but the Jazz have only three players on the injury report heading into Friday's game against the Pistons. As such, the Jazz aren't expected to be granted another hardship exemption from the NBA, which leaves no room for Valentine now that his 10-day deal has expired. Valentine logged 19 minutes between his two appearances off Utah's bench, totaling five points, four rebounds, one steal and two turnovers.
