One of their biggest reasons the Utah Jazz brought their D-League affiliate to Salt Lake City was it allowed for quick travel between the two clubs.

The Jazz took advantage Monday.

Coming off a long road trip, the Jazz sent Dante Exum, Alec Burks and Raul Neto to the Stars in the morning. The three practiced and scrimmaged with the Stars, all three on the same team.

The the Jazz recalled all three by rush hour Monday evening.

All three are expected to be in uniform Tuesday night when the Jazz host the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Burks is expected to go back down to the Stars on Wednesday night for a game to work on his conditioning.

The Jazz did this because the three didn't play much on the road trip. It was a way for them to get some extra work.
