    I have great respect for Georges Niang and Miye Oni and the growth that we’ve seen from them over the course of this season, but they weren’t ready to contribute in meaningful ways against the Clippers.
    and yet COTY kept putting them out there

    Additionally, without a skilled small-ball five or another strong wing defender, the Jazz were forced into tough situations that weren’t just hard to overcome, but practically impossible. Derrick Favors wasn’t able to keep up with the rotations or the penetration of the Clippers, so when the Jazz go with Gobert they back themselves into a bit of a wall. By team design the Jazz have to rely on Gobert for so much, and he is legitimately a terrific defender, but he can’t do everything.
    Ersan, Morgan, Brantley and Forrest were available

    Coaching
    one of the biggest problems and he'll probably get an extension

    The Jazz need to find a way to stay healthy and fresh for the postseason, they need to fill in the gaps on the roster where they are lacking, they need to be able to make adjustments when things get tough and the players have to be able to raise their level and execute with more precision when the lights are brightest.
    New front office for starters. They hire a new coach and improve the roster

    30. Utah Jazz – Max Abmas, G, Oral Roberts

    The Utah Jazz saw their season come to a disappointing in the postseason, and it would be wise for this team to make some improvements during the offseason. At the draft, they could select Max Abmas who is coming off a sophomore season at Oral Roberts in which he averaged 24 points on 48 percent shooting from the field and 43 percent shooting from 3-point range.
    can he defend? unless they think Forrest will be able to develop a shot a pg or combo guard should be their pick. After that probably anything but a center

    Given his lack of playing time, Oni being replaced by a draft prospect sure is a possibility this offseason.
    he was their 10 man and has a non guarantee I believe. Could be valuable for a trade but I'd guess he was back. Needs to develop a more consistent shot

    Given that Ilyasova was buried down the depth chart anyway, the Jazz would be best suited to find another forward depth option this offseason.
    He was one of their best players. Maybe with a full training camp the coach would realize it? I'd look to bring him back

    Again, if the Jazz want to free up money on the books, Favors is perhaps the easiest option by trading him elsewhere.
    doubt it would be easy. I'd be looking to move him, Clarkson and Hughes. Move Bojan to Clarkson's role. Sign Conley and maybe Niang(I'd guess he's gone). Would love to have Brantley and Morgan back but they are probably better off elsewhere. Forrest will probably be back but needs to develop a shot. Could be in the rotation if he did. Matt Thomas could be back or valuable with a non guaranteed deal. Should have a summer league to help with some of those decisions anyway this year. Hope Mitchell starts living up to the hype. Get a starting 4 somehow. Hope Lindsey goes back to Houston like rumored and Ainge takes over and hires a new coach.

    Losing four games in a row to a team without their best player is disheartening. Seeing the same issues arise around Rudy Gobert in the playoffs in the deciding game is the kind of thing that can change a franchise.
    only two without Kawai. 5 without Conley and really 6 the way he played in game 6

    This is becoming a common trend of teams in the league. Teams put together fantastic regular season only to find themselves dismissed early in the postseason. Fans will likely be desperate for changes but figuring out what to fix with the Jazz is not that easy.
    Not that tough. Lindsey, Snyder, Clarkson, Favors and Hughes for starters. Depending on what the roster looks like after they are gone and the draft you go from there. Need a starting 4. Need more D while not sacrificing too much spacing.

    Mike Conley is one of only two regular rotation players who is a pending free agent. In a relatively shallow free agent pool, he is likely to have a strong market and is essential for the Jazz to bring back. Beyond that, it may finally be time to listen to listen to trade calls for Rudy Gobert as he again looked to get played off the court. Finally, if questions swirl around other coaches who are great in the regular season but fail to adjust in the postseason, how far should those same questions be from Quin Snyder?
    doubt Rudy would be easy to move and you might as well tank if you move him. Never won without him. Hard to imagine it really. The D would be awful instantly and they would just be chucking 3's which they too often were as is

    “What’s not lost on us is the historic season that we had,” Utah executive Dennis Lindsey said. “We have to evaluate the playoffs under the lens that we wore down physically. We will have good, honest, sober assessments that we will keep internal. We will try to be internally and just brutally honest with ourselves on where we might have fallen short. We will do a comprehensive review from A to Z. I think one of our strengths is that we’re honest with ourselves. We will take a collective deep breath and we’ll start working on draft prep and then free agency.”

    tells me they will do little and blame all their problems on injuries and bring the band back

    The Jazz did a lot of work last offseason: They gave monster extensions to both Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, re-signed Jordan Clarkson and brought back Derrick Favors on a multi-year deal. But because of all those deals, the Jazz have little to no flexibility, barring some major core changes.
    what a mess.

    For the Jazz, Udoka Azubuike, Elijah Hughes, Trent Forrest, Jarrell Brantley will likely see action — along with any of the team's draft picks. The Jazz currently have No. 30th pick in the 2021 NBA draft.
    Brantley and Forrest are free agents. Oni, Morgan and Thomas?

    A roster has not been announced yet but we’ll definitely see Udoka Azubuike and Elijah Hughes suit up for the Jazz. It’s also very likely we see Trent Forrest play. It’s unclear if we’ll see Miye Oni, Juwan Morgan or Jarrell Brantley considering they’ll be entering their third seasons next year, but it could only help to see them on the floor again.
    Hopefully Hughes guaranteed deal will be moved

    One other contract I’m staring at is favors…..
    As much as he is a jazz man, im starting to wonder if his contract is worth it…… especially since we drafted a center in the first round……

    Dok was a wasted pick if the jazz intend to keep favors, he’s gonna get literally no playing time…. barring injuries to both rudy and favors….
    At which point the jazz season would be over anyways

    Posted by ThomasSmithjaz1 on Jun 21, 2021 | 5:11 PM
    Dok isn't a wasted pick yet. Let's see what he can do first. You play vets and develop young guys ideally. When young guys look ready you do something. Favors needs to go but not because of Dok. 17 guys. 9 played. Clarkson needs to go too

    Oni can take a hike, he should be on the GLeague team.
    I like Brantley a lot I wished he got a better look to get more playing time. Posted by Matt_Grbac on Jun 21, 2021 | 6:20 PM
    Oni has potential. Not his fault that the coach is smarter than all of us

    Only Forrest got some run when Mike and Donny were out. Brantley had one game with 20 minutes and looked great and then nothing afterwards. One of the few disappointments in a successful regular season. We still don’t know if any of these guys are really any good. Really need 20 minutes a game for 3 or 4 games to get any sort of rhythm.

    and Oni dropped out with there were more than 1 injury! Made no sense.

    Fortunately — at least for the Utah Jazz — Eric Walden of The Salt Lake Tribune confirmed on Monday that the New York native will instead remain at home to ensure his ankle fully heals without further setbacks.
    not necessarily fortunate. Can learn a lot playing for other coaches with other great players
