Jazz waive former Louisville guard Lewis, sign Cousins

Trey Lewis was released by the Jazz and could be headed for the G-League.

The Utah Jazz have waived guard Trey Lewis, the team announced in a news release.

Lewis went undrafted out Louisville in 2016 and has played overseas since then. He started his college career at Penn State, before spending two years at Cleveland State and the final one at Louisville.

Lewis is a product of Garfield Heights High School in Ohio. He played for the Jazz summer-league team this past offseason and signed a camp deal in August.

“Although Lewis won’t crack Utah’s 15-man regular season roster, he looks like a candidate to land with the Salt Lake City Stars, the Jazz’s G League affiliate, assuming he opts to sign an NBAGL contract rather than heading back overseas,” Luke Adams of HoopsRumors wrote.

In related news, the Jazz announced they have signed combo guard Isaiah Cousins, drafted 59th overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2016.
