Do the Utah Jazz need a quick fix or major overhaul?

2016 was supposed to be the year that the Utah Jazz’s tedious rebuilding process finally paid off, but unfortunately things didn’t turn out that way. Dante Exum tore his ACL, and Alec Burks is still out indefinitely with an ankle injury. Other injury problems include the ferocious tandem of Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors, who have played less than 30 games with each other. This...

Renegotiating Derrick Favors’ Contract: What Makes Sense?

It is against the rules of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement in the NBA for a player to renegotiate their contract and take a smaller amount of money. However, when a team is under the cap, they can renegotiate current contracts to give players more money than was originally agreed to. It hasn’t happened often, because the circumstances where a team can and wants to give...

Utah Jazz: Who should the team pick at #12 in the Draft?

Yes, we’re still in the middle of the NBA playoffs but it is never too early to look ahead to the summer. More notably, looking ahead to the NBA Draft. The lottery was last week and as we all know, the Philadelphia 76’ers ended up with the #1 pick. But that’s not why we’re here. The Utah Jazz stayed in their position and will pick 12th. With the Jazz just a few wins from...

Rudy Gobert tries to recruit Evan Fournier to Utah after Scott Skiles resigns

Jazz center Rudy Gobert is apparently quite the opportunist. Fresh off the bombshell news Thursday that Scott Skiles abruptly resigned as head coach of the Orlando Magic, Gobert used the shocked reaction of Magic swingman (and fellow Frenchman) Evan Fournier as an opportunity to try and recruit Fournier to Utah in not safe for work language on Twitter.  Subtle much?

The Utah Jazz will be getting brand new logos, too

The Utah Jazz have possibly the most misplaced name in sports. Of course they were the New Orleans Jazz until they moved to Utah, and the name somehow stayed with the team when it moved from Louisiana. The franchise has tried to incorporate the culture of Utah into their logo set with the mountains but it’s seemingly a bit dated now, so, it’s time for a change. The changes...

April Autopsy: Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz were stung near the end of the season by established veterans who used to play for them. The Jazz will feel the pain of their loss to Dallas — and their inability to make the playoffs — over the next several months. Yet, if the Jazz lost the battle in 2016, they’re in position to win the war over the next several seasons. Much of the story of the 2016 Jazz is...

The Utah Jazz encounter another gut-punch moment in their snake-bitten history

The Utah Jazz aren’t an inept organization. They haven’t endured dysfunctional ownership situations or suffered in the face of incompetent management — not for long periods of time, at any rate. Yes, Ty Corbin coached this team for a period of time and destroyed a lot of stomach linings in Salt Lake City, but decades of Frank Layden and Jerry Sloan — and Larry Miller in the...
