The Jazz are discussing trading guard Raja Bell to the Los Angeles Clippers, HoopsWorld's Alex Kennedy reported Tuesday.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported earlier Tuesday that Utah is open to dealing Bell before the Thursday trade deadline. A source told The Tribune that Bell's on the market and the Jazz aren't reluctant to move him.

Bell was recently sent home early from a five-game road trip after a heated confrontation with Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. He returned to Utah's starting lineup Monday, during a home win against Detroit.

The 12-year veteran acknowledged the trade deadline was discussed during a meeting Monday with Corbin and Utah General Manager Kevin O'Connor. Bell said he has not requested to be dealt, and has no plans to ask for a trade.
