SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz are once again holding a free-agent mini-camp this week to evaluate 27 fringe NBA players over the course of three days at Zions Bank Basketball Center.

Last year, the Jazz also invited 27 prospects, three of whom made an NBA roster. In the 2014-15 season, Patrick Christopher and Jack Cooley both made the Jazz roster, and Darius Morris played nearly 300 minutes for Brooklyn. Five players made NBA rosters in the season after the 2013 Jazz mini-camp.

Only physicals are being held this afternoon, then two days of morning and evening workouts will take place on Wednesday and Thursday. Media availability is after Wednesday morning's session, though the Jazz won't allow individual players to be interviewed. Instead, Jazz director of pro player personnel David Fredman will be open for questions. The mini-camp is not open to the public.

Here's the full list of participants for this year's mini-camp:

The Jazz mini-camp has been a staple of Dennis Lindsey's tenure as general manager. Since Lindsey was hired as GM in 2012, and the subsequent expansion of front office staff, the Jazz have been far more able to evaluate large swaths of players in order to find possible role players who can contribute at the NBA level.
