SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -The Utah Jazz waived forward Kevin Lyde on Monday, setting their opening-day roster.
Lyde, who played at Temple, was invited to training camp as a free agent after spending four seasons in the NBA Development League. He played in three preseason games for the Jazz, averaging 1.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 6.7 minutes.
Four players on the roster were not with the Jazz last season when Utah made it to the Western Conference finals: forward Morris Almond and center Kyrylo Fesenko both made the roster along with guards Ronnie Price and Jason Hart, free agents who signed with Utah over the summer.
The Jazz open the season Tuesday at Golden State.
