Big Changes In Jazz Roster

This summer has brought about some interesting and very hopeful changes in preparing for the Jazz 2013-2014 lineup. Things are in a frenzy right now with the free agent market booming and players coming and going throughout the NBA. It will likely still be a couple of months until things settle in to a permanent situation as to who will be wearing the Utah Jazz basketball uniforms this coming October. The summer league tournament which will be held in Orlando will feature 10 teams including the Jazz and will be a showcase for many of the new players to show off their talents. The event will run from July 7th through the 12th. A lot of buzz has been generated by Utah’s acquisition of rookie Trey Burke who came to the team through a draft night trade. Burke led his team to a NCAA championship and was picked as the National Player of the Year prior to going into the 2013 draft so it’s clear that he’s got some real talent. Recent trades have also involved Big Al Jefferson who will be going to Charlotte and will be a great front line addition to the Bobcats. Paul Millsap ends his seven year stay with the Jazz and will now be wearing an Atlanta Hawk uniform as he signs a two-year, nineteen million dollar contract with that team. Another Jazz trade involved the Golden State Warriors who gave up Andres Biedrins and Richard Jefferson along with two unprotected first round draft picks (one in 2014 and the other in 2017) A lot of changes have taken place not only for the team as a whole but for so many players who will be uprooting their families and moving to a new locale, finding new homes, new schools, new friends. With these changes the Utah Jazz are becoming a much younger team which will certainly involve some growing pains as players mature and improve with experience.
