Jason Hart - Assistant coach at Pepperdine.
January 5, 2011
Jason Hart - Hart earned a ten day call-up last year with the New Orleans Hornets as emergency injury cover, and it's not unfeasible that he could do so again. He certainly oozes the necessary qualities of age, experience, and passing first. But he is no longer top of the list and might struggle. He has not played since his Hornets stint.

Hart went to camp with Minnesota last season, along with five other players, all battling for just one roster spot. Current Spur Alonzo Gee was one of them, yet he and the others had to watch as Hart won the spot and made the team. Jason didn't stay long, as Minnesota used his unguaranteed contract to acquire Alando Tucker from Phoenix, and after Phoenix instantly waived Hart, he played on a ten day contract with New Orleans, and then didn't play for the remainder of the season. Hart is a veteran point guard, a sterotype which brings with it obvious connotations - steadiness, determination, high IQ, heart, graft, intangibles, fundamental defense, and extremely marginal talent. These aren't necessarily meant as pejoratives.

Jason Hart - Hart was a member of three NBA teams last season, first winning a roster spot with the Timberwolves (no point guard jokes) and then being traded to the Suns for Alando Tucker (who immediately waived him). He then joined the Hornets for a short while as injury cover, recording 22 minutes and about half a million dollars on the season. Lucky bugger. Hart is only 32, yet hasn't done anything since his fluke year with the expansion Bobcats.

- Jason Hart
Hart first signed with the Timberwolves for training camp, and the depth chart alone was enough to help him beat out the other 470 competitors for the 15th man spot. However, despite the Wolves' lack of a third point guard, Hart played only 5 minutes and ended up being traded away, twice. Sort of. The Timberwolves first had a deal with New Orleans that would have seen them trade Hart (or rather, his unguaranteed contract) to the Hornets in exchange for Devin Brown and cash, and the deal was so close to being done that a press release even appeared on the Timberwolves' website. However, Phoenix snuck in at the last minute and offered Minnesota a better deal, giving them Alando Tucker and a second rounder for Hart instead.
Phoenix then waived Hart, and New Orleans eventually got their man when Hart signed a ten day contract with them as injury cover when Chris Paul first went down. Since then, however, Hart has been unsigned. He can often be seen in the crowd of Syracuse home games, although there aren't any more of them scheduled until November time now.
