Jordan Hamilton SF UTA 1 Month

Hamilton was waived by the Jazz on Thursday, the Deseret News reports.

Hamilton was claimed off waivers right before the season began but ultimately never dawned the Jazz jersey during the season. Utah was his third stop over the course of the past year which means he's having a hard time convincing NBA teams that he deserves a spot on their roster. Because of this, the 24-year-old may have a hard time finding another spot on an NBA roster despite his above-average ability to shoot beyond the arc.

Hamilton was claimed off waivers by the Jazz on Monday, Yahoo! Sports reports.

Hamilton was one of the Raptors' final post-training camp cuts, and the Jazz acted quickly in claiming the former Texas standout. Hamilton played two-plus season with the Nuggets, where he showed flashes of his potential but was never truly able to carve out a consistent role. A trade to Houston in February enabled him to see regular playing time off the bench, and he finished the season averaging 9.5 points in 18.0 minutes per game in 21 contests for the Rockets. Hamilton did not play in Houston's first round playoff series against Portland. He'll join a Jazz team in need of help on the wing, and Hamilton will have a chance to compete with rookie Rodney Hood for playing time behind entrenched starter Gordon Hayward. The 6-7 Hamilton is an excellent spot-up shooter but struggles closer to the basket, as he's a career 40.6 percent shooter from the field.

Hamilton was waived by the Raptors on Saturday.

Hamilton has enough talent to land on his feet with another team at some point this season, but he's unlikely to be a fantasy asset.

Hamilton scored 16 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 3P, 2-2 FT) with three assists, three steals and two rebounds in 21 minutes during Wednesday's preseason win over the Celtics.

He looked good at both ends of the court, something that hasn't always been the case in his career, and Hamilton seems intent on winning an NBA job this preseason, whether in Toronto or with another club who notices his improved performance.

Hamilton scored 12 points (6-10 FG, 0-2 3P) in 20 minutes of court time off the bench during Tuesday's preseason game.

He's battling Greg Stiemsma and Will Cherry for the final available spot on the Raptors, and while Stiemsma's ability to protect the rim probably gives him a big advantage in that competition, Hamilton won't hurt his chances if he continues to provide these kinds of minutes in the preseason.

Hamilton will be in a training camp battle with Will Cherry and Greg Stiemsma for the final spot on the Raptors' roster, the Toronto Star reports.

Hamilton might be the best fit of the three from a roster construction perspective, but he'll also need to prove he can buy into coach Dwane Casey's defensive system at least a little if he's going to get serious consideration.

Hamilton signed a one-year deal with the Raptors on Thursday, Sportando reports.

Always viewed as a high-upside player in the right system, Hamilton has struggled to find a home in the league. He's spent time with both Denver and Houston, where he closed out 2013-14. In three NBA seasons, Hamilton owns career averages of 5.8 points and 2.8 rebounds. Toronto is not overly deep on the wing, and Hamilton will surely challenge James Johnson and Landry Fields for minutes behind Terrence Ross and DeMar DeRozan.

Jordan Hamilton got his first start in a Rockets uniform on Saturday during a 118-110 win vs. the Pistons, scoring 13 points, four boards, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

He fit right in tonight for his new team as he was able to attack the basket and take six 3-pointers. Hamilton has been in double figures for each of his last three games and looks to be in the rotation. Although, Chandler Parsons (illness) not playing tonight and garbage time in the first of those three helps inflated his stats a bit. There's little reason to add him for Tuesday's game.

Jordan Hamilton will start at small forward for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

It's his first start with his new team after being acquired at the trade deadline last week. Hamilton has been used in 24 minutes for each of the last two games, averaging, 14.0 points, 4.0 boards, 1.5 steals and 3.0 triples. Fantasy owners can look his way for a plug-and-play.

Jordan Hamilton played 24 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in a loss to the Clippers Wednesday.

Omri Casspi didn't even get off the bench tonight and Hamilton is a guy you'll want to put on the radar going forward. He was recently acquired from the Nuggets and looks like a better player than both Casspi and Francisco Garcia. He also had 12 points and two 3-pointers on Tuesday, and it looks like Kevin McHale likes him.
