The Utah Jazz have waived Elijah Millsap before his contract guarantee date.

Millsap was informed of his release Tuesday. The Jazz faced a Thursday deadline to decide whether to guarantee the contract of Millsap, who signed a three-year deal during the 2014-15 season.

Millsap, 28, averaged 4.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and nearly one steal in 67 games with the Jazz spanning the past two seasons.
