Utah Jazz Unsure about Sundiata Gaines

His second 10-day contract expires Sunday, meaning the Jazz soon will have another decision to make.
This time, it’s more long-term than short.

The choice: Guarantee rookie point guard Sundiata Gaines for the rest of the season, or return him to Idaho of the NBA Development League and instead bring in another No. 3 point to audition on a 10-day.

"I think we’ll use the time we’ve got allotted (to decide), and sit down with Coach (Jerry Sloan) and talk with him about it," Jazz general manager Kevin O’Connor said Thursday.

Sloan on Wednesday was noncommittal.

"We’ll just see what happens," he said before the Jazz’s win at San Antonio. "I don’t make a decision on anything right now. He’s here, and we’ll go as if he’s gonna be here.
