SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz waived veteran backup point guard Jim Les today and signed free agent Delaney Rudd of Wake Forest to fill out their 12-player roster.
The terms of the contract with Rudd, who turns 27 on Wednesday, were not released, said Jazz spokesman Kim Turner.
The 6-foot-2 point guard was a third-round draft pick of the Jazz in 1985, the same draft that produced Karl Malone and Carey Scurry. Rudd has played previously in the CBA and the United States Basketball League.
He also played in Greece for two seasons, averaging 33 points a game.
Rudd is expected to be in uniform Wednesday night when the Jazz host Charlotte.
