Norvel Pelle: Deal expires

The Jazz didn't re-sign Pelle after his 10-day contract expired Monday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports. Pelle appeared in three games while Utah's frontcourt depth was tested by COVID-19-related absences, averaging 2.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 6.3 minutes per contest. With Rudy Gobert, Rudy Gay and Udoka Azubuike having since cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols, the Jazz didn't have a need to keep Pelle around any longer.

Norvel Pelle: Removed from Boston's roster

The Celtics didn't re-sign Pelle after his 10-day contract expired Tuesday, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports. Boston moved on from both Pelle and forward Al-Farouq Aminu on Tuesday, after both players' services were no longer needed now that the Celtics have most of their roster available again following a wave of COVID-19-related absences. During his week-and-a-half-long stint with Boston, Pelle went unused off the bench. Unless another team offers him a 10-day deal in the near future, Pelle will likely return to the G League, where he had been playing with the Cleveland Charge.
