Big Changes In Store For Utah Jazz?
Posted by Nancy on April 29, 2013
After a rather disappointing season the Jazz will soon be in the process of a shake-up to determine what the team will look like for next year. The guys who wore the Jazz basketball jerseys this year had moments of greatness but sadly they were punctuated by long stretches of lack luster effort and dismal results. True, they did come ever so close to making the play-offs but in the end they just couldn’t quite pull it off. Management finds themselves in the interesting situation of having eight of their players in the category of free agents this summer which could potentially free up in the neighborhood of forty million dollars. That isn’t chump change even with the astronomical salaries that some NBA players pull in. The four who likely will be staying for the next season are the core of Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, Alec Burks and Enes Kanter. It seems apparent that Paul Millsap or Al Jefferson will be leaving the team and possibly even both of them. If they both leave that will free up $25,000,000 to assist in the hunt for a solid, productive big man. Hopefully the powers that be will be successful in their search for the right players to make up a team that fans want to see in the play-offs at the end of the 2013-2014 season.
