How Will The Jazz Improve For Next Season?
Posted by Nancy on May 25, 2010
It’s off season for the Utah Jazz and now is the time to scout out potential players who will complete the squad for the upcoming year. They definitely need to start with their core player, Deron Williams and go from there, building around him to ensure a solid team. Everyone knows that when Boozer is healthy (that operative word here is WHEN) he is a dynamite player. The problem is his inconsistency and the seemingly fragile nature of his commitment. For that reason it might serve the team well to send him packing and free up the needed money to secure another power player. This is possibly the best year ever for free agents. Some of the biggest names in the game are going to be available this summer to the highest bidder. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Paul Pierce, Amare Stoudemire, Ray Allen, Tracy McGrady, Yao Ming, and Dirk Nowitzki head up the list and there are many others as well. The main question is money. Who could the Jazz afford. While it appears that Jazz owner, Greg Miller, is ready to exceed the salary cap and pay the money required, Utah remains a small market compared to most of the other areas that support teams and the available funds are presumably much less. Perhaps looking elsewhere (like Europe) might be a good plan for the team. Maybe they could snag an up and coming player for a decent price that would compliment the team well. However it happens, something needs to be done to make the team a championship contender for next season.
