SALT LAKE CITY -- Raja Bell is gone and now practically forgotten ... perhaps barely remembered to hear his former coach and teammates talk about it.
The 36-year-old guard, whom the Jazz finally released Sunday, had been on the team's roster since signing as a free agent in 2010. However, his feud with Utah's front office kept him away from the team this season, even though he remained on the roster.
Following Monday's shootaround, Jazz players said Bell's situation with the team meant little to them.
Center Al Jefferson wasn't even aware Bell had been given his release. He indicated Bell's issues with the team was of little interest to anyone in the Jazz locker room.
"I'm pretty sure they're happy to have that over with," he said. "(Bell) is happy, too, probably. I just really didn't get involved in that because it's really not my business. I don't think it affected us at all."
Veteran point guard Mo Williams concurred.
"Trust me, it hasn't been a conversation," he said. "I mean, not one time throughout the season. It hasn't been a conversation."
Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin -- the principal figure in Bell's conflict with the team -- also had little to say about Sunday's news.
"It's over, we're moving on," he said.
Ask if he's relieved the issue has been put to rest, Corbin said it's now a non-issue.
"Relieved? No. We're moving forward," he said. "We've got other things on the plate."
The Jazz filled Bell's spot on the roster with 6-foot-4 guard Travis Leslie, who signed a 10-day contract.
Leslie had been playing in the NBA Development League, where he averaged 16.1 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists for the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Leslie, 22, was a second-round draft pick of the Los Angeles Clippers in 2011.
Jazz 103, Pistons 90
* BEST LINE: Mo Williams finished with 20 points on 9-for-14 shooting. He also had six assists, all in just over 26 minutes of action.
* KEY STAT: The Jazz opened the second quarter on a 20-8 run, effectively sending a message to the tired, beat-up Pistons.
* POSTGAME MOMENT: Long after the game ended, Utah's front-office brass Greg Miller, Kevin O'Connor, Dennis Lindsey, Tyrone Corbin and Randy Rigby were appeared to be in deep discussion huddled outside the Jazz locker room -- in full view of fans and media members.
* INJURY REPORT: The Jazz played without starting power forward Paul Millsap (right knee) and reserve point guard Jamaal Tinsley (illness). ... Pistons starting power forward Jason Maxiell (sprained ankle) was a late scratch from the lineup.
* ICE COLD: There was no hot water available in either locker room after the game. Several Jazz players opted to take cold showers but big man Al Jefferson refused, saying he'd rather drive home at take a hot shower. He later left the arena in sweats. The Pistons, meanwhile, had a charter flight to Oakland, Calif. waiting for them.
* UP NEXT: The Jazz will make a quick trip to Oklahoma City on Wednesday then return home to face Memphis on Saturday.
