Utah Jazz: Bell is ringing for Raja--Deseret News

One certainty, Bell's knowledge and experience from 11 years in the NBA can be of great value to young wing players like Gordon Hayward and rookie Alec Burks .

Assistant Jeff Hornacek called Bell "very valuable" just because of the mentorship aspect.

"We've got a lot of young guys on the team," Jazz assistant Jeff Hornacek said. "And he's got to be one of our veterans who helps and adds stability and leadership to this team, and set an example for our young guys to follow. It's very important."

Hayward took advantage of Bell's guidance last season — and benefited while the veteran was sidelined late in the season, too. The second-year swingman from Butler laughed while watching Bell teasingly tell Jeremy Evans he couldn't dunk during their pre-practice h-o-r-s-e game Sunday.

"He's been really good for us, for me — just kind of showing me the ropes, and he's been doing it a while," Hayward said. "He's a professional. He knows how to act on and off the court.

"He's a competitor, too. That's what I love about him. He might get mad during practices or something, but off the court he's still going to be there for you and tell you what you did wrong or what you can improve on or what to expect. He's definitely been a big help."
