    Default 2023 off-season

    3 1sts and possibly 60 million in cap space. Danny will be in the middle of whatever happens this summer which is what he wanted. I guess the first order of business will be seeing where they are picking. Their pick is 9th. Minnesota's is tied for 15th but I guess it depends on what happens this week in the play-in as to rather it is a lottery pick or not. Got something like a 20% chance of the top pick with their slot.

    The 14th pick in the lottery has a 2.4% chance of moving into the top four; 13th has a 4.7% chance; 12th has a 7% chance.


    If there is a tie — and there could be one between the Wolves and Pelicans if they both don't get through the play-in tournament — draft selections are determined by a random drawing; however, they split lottery ping pong balls evenly, and any odd remainder and the better draft order position are given to the random drawing winner.


    The lottery will be held on May 16 at the draft combine in Chicago.


    But, wait, there's more: Utah's final first-round selection is now official. Utah will get the No. 28 selection from the Royce O'Neale trade last summer. The Jazz got the least favorable pick between Houston, Brooklyn and Philadelphia.

    The Jazz were already looking like the team that was on the winning end of the Gobert trade, which gave the Jazz multiple first-round picks (including Minnesota’s first-round pick this year), Kessler and a haul of other players that have been dealt and flipped since.
    if they'd had Gobert they'd have been one of the top teams in the league. Their D and rebounding sucked despite playing big


    It might seem a little impudent to say so, but if you’re a Jazz fan and you think about the Jazz team that came before this one, or look at the Timberwolves team that played on Sunday, you’re probably feeling pretty good about things in Utah.
    trading the 3rd best player ion franchise history hasn't felt good. Should have been figuring out where his statue was going

    The Utah Jazz entered Thursday night in their game vs. the Oklahoma City Thunder in essentially what was a “win-or-go-home” scenario. While the Jazz still needed a few things to go their way in order to make the play-in, last night was a crucial one for Will Hardy and the squad.
    nothing crucial about a team that was built to lose games

    If there was one thing that was made clear tonight, it’s that Kris Dunn was deserving of his multi-year extension with the Jazz.
    been clear since day 1

    If Rudy decides not to retire, he finds himself with a $6.4 million player option on his contract. While this is probably more than he would find on the open market, if he does decide to come back for another season, wouldn’t it just make more sense to play for a team that’s more competitive right now?
    be nice if they found someone to do this site with a clue. Gay is likely with the Jazz until next year's trade deadline. He isn't giving up that money and no one wants him unless he's somehow thrown into a big trade

    Toscano-Anderson will be entering his age 30 season in September (his birthday actually on Monday; happy birthday, Juan). With the potential to contribute to a more competitive roster around the league, the opportunity for him may just be greater elsewhere.
    Jazz will need vets and wings. I could see him being back. Probably not but possible. Jazz should be one of the most competitive rosters next year. See what they can do with ttheir cap space but already won 36 with this group

    Clarkson will be turning 31 in July, still in some of the best years of his career. The eight-year vet may just end up taking his talents elsewhere with better championship aspirations than the Jazz right now.
    good luck with the championship Bum!

    Clarkson has a player option for $14.2 million for next season, but he'll likely test the free agency market after a career year. Clarkson averaged 20.8 points, 4.0 rebounds and 4.8 assists this season (all career-highs) and showcased an improved all-around offensive game. It's clear he's set to get a raise — and that still could be with the Jazz.
    has to go! Let someone else pay the Bum

    Horton-Tucker has a player option for $11 million for next season. A couple months ago, it looked like he and his camp would have had an easy decision, but after averaging 18.2 points, 6.0 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 19 games as a starter, there might be a market for the 22-year-old player.
    I'd say the Jazz will be very happy if he opts out. Has some upside but if he never develops a shot it's very limited

    Gay has a player option for $6.5 million for next season; he won't get that if he hits free agency, but Gay has already made nearly $175 million during his 17-year career, so the decision might not come down to money.
    almost always comes down to money. He might be out of the league if he opts out

    Jones has a player option for $2.5 milloin — not significantly more than what a minimum contract would look like for the backup center. He did say he plans on picking it up.
    well duh!

    The Utah Jazz did not pick up the fourth-year option for their 2020 first-round pick, likely ending Azubuike's run with the team. The oft-injured big had his best stretch of his career to close the season, averaging 7.5 points and 6.3 rebounds in the last 12 games of the year. Will that be enough to keep him in the league? Time will tell.
    not sure it was better than the 18 game or whatever stretch last year. Not sure why they kept he around after the deadline. He can play in the league.

    In 22 games for the Jazz, Toscano-Anderson averaged 3.4 points and 2.9 rebounds while shooting just 17% from 3-point range. The 30-year-old swingman, who came to Utah as part of the Mike Conley trade, is not expected to be a high priority for the Jazz once free agency begins.
    no but they need wings and vets so I could see him being back depending on what else happens

    Dunn and Samanic each have deals that included a non-guaranteed year in 2023-24. They are expected to compete for spots in training camp.
    Samanic got a partial guarantee. Dunn could certainly be gone if they sign another vet pg. Both could be in trades. That is why you sign guys to these deals

    On the other end, the Jazz became the first team since 1990-91 to allow 100 points in every game of a season, per Tyson Ewing. Their opponent eFG% was actually average at 54.1%, but they were the third worst team at forcing turnovers.
    With Gobert they would have been one of the top teams. The turnovers is something that was supposed to improve with COTM gone

    NBA Draft: June 22. The Jazz have drafted in the top 10 just three times in the past 17 drafts. The last time, they selected Dante Exum, who struggled with injuries and ultimately lost the faith of his coach. Before that, it was Enes Freedom (nee Kanter), who forced his way out of Utah while still on a rookie contract, but who definitely missed the mountains. Before that, they drafted Gordon Hayward ninth and saw him develop into an All-Star before leaving to Boston. This June, they’ll try again.
    let's keep blaming Exum on injuries. He never looked like an NBA basketball player to me. An athlete trying to play at the highest level of basketball

    Many high-level decision-makers from opposing teams believe Quin Snyder now has the final say on personnel decisions with the Atlanta Hawks.
    sounds like a great idea. Be plenty of Duke players in Atlanta

    The team will be armed with three picks in the coming NBA Draft, and perhaps more than $30 million in cap space, plus potentially millions more in expiring contracts. “We thought that this season would be a journey, a season of discovery. … We got to find out a lot of different things about our players — things we really needed to know as we try to open up a championship window,” said general manager Justin Zanik. “… The flexibility we were able to create for now and going forward, along with all the ability to go and target different things — that can take form in many different ways.” Or, as he put it a bit more succinctly a bit later … “[With] the optionality that we’ve created, the possibilities are endless,” Zanik said. “… There could be a lot of change this summer.”

    “Yeah, this is gonna be fun,” CEO Danny Ainge said Wednesday morning in a season wrap-up interview with local media. “A lot more draft picks, more money to spend — yeah, a shopping spree. Yeah, this will be more fun — much more fun than last year.”
    – via Salt Lake Tribune







    “We’re not going to put a timeline on it, because the very next thing is always the most important thing,” Zanik said. “… It’s just a continuous timeline of us trying to make really good decisions.” That said, they understand the inclination observers have to wonder how long the road to contention will be. “You guys aren’t the only ones asking us when we’re going to be good, how good we’re going to be this year. We get asked that question by [owner] Ryan [Smith] all the time, too,” Ainge quipped. “He’s anxious to spend his money. And we’re anxious to spend it.” – via Salt Lake Tribune
    Danny's finally having some fun

    Andy Larsen: Word from the Jazz: most Jazz draft workouts will not be made available to the media this season. We won’t generally know which workouts are happening, nor will we get to interview prospects — with a few exceptions when the Jazz work out local prospects.
    – via Twitter andyblarsen




    Andy Larsen: Jazz say it’s for competitive reasons — hoping to make opposition teams less knowledgeable about what the Jazz are doing. They also say most of the league’s teams also don’t make their workout participants publicly known.

    Utah’s Lauri Markkanen transformed himself into an All-Star this season by becoming the first NBA player to record over 100 dunks and 200 threes (most by a 7-footer) in a season. He’s the only player this season averaging over 25 points on 50 percent from the field and over 39 percent from beyond the arc.
