Should the Utah Jazz pursue Jrue Holiday?

The Utah Jazz have two quality, young point guards in Dante Exum and Trey Burke. Exum still has a world of potential to realize, and if he ever does, could be one of the best point guards in the league. While Burke doesn't have Exum's potential, he showed the ability to be one of the best back up points in the NBA, which is no small thing by any measure. Yet, neither of these guards...

Three back-up centers the Utah Jazz should pursue

As the Utah Jazz look towards the 2015-16 NBA Season, they find themselves with a roster that is quite complete, despite being so young. If their current roster stays pretty much the same as it is now, their starting lineup will likely be Dante Exum, Alec Burks, Gordon Hayward, Derrick Favors, and Rudy Gobert. There is the possibility that Rodney Hood will get the start over Burks...

Breakout season leaves Gobert and Utah Jazz wanting more

While Rudy Gobert placed third in the Most Improved Player voting, if the NBA had a "Breakout Star" award, the Stifle Tower would have almost certainly won in a blowout. Gobert emerged this season as a defensive force, helping transform a Utah Jazz defense that was worst in the league last season into one of the best this year after the All-Star break. The lanky frenchman seemed...

Joe Ingles loves his new nickname

Joe Ingles surpassed most expectations in his rookie year with the Utah Jazz. After being waived by the Los Angeles Clippers, Ingles was picked up by the Jazz, though his expected role was less of a contributor and more a mentor, specifically to Dante Exum. Yet Ingles slowly proved his worth, showing a high basketball IQ, great passing and the ability to space the floor. As a result...

The Utah Jazz should stay the course

Patience. That one word has been the constant message coming from the Utah Jazz front office for the past two seasons. At the beginning of the 2014-15 NBA Season, it appeared that Jazz fans were in for another rough year. At one point before the mid-way point of the season, the Jazz were a dismal 16 games below .500. However, following the All-Star Break and the Enes Kanter trade...

Utah Jazz: The Team-Option Players

One of the decisions the Utah Jazz will have to make this summer is if they want to keep any of their guys that have team options. None of them should feel comfortable on draft night, but suppose the Jazz are quiet and keep their picks. Who among the team-option guys might stay? TREVOR BOOKER – He’s due for $4,775,000 should the Jazz decide to keep him. He was good for 7.2 points...

Defensive Lottery Player of the Year: Rudy Gobert

Gobert was arguably the best rim protector in the NBA this season. Well, this is a bit awkward. If you’ve been following our end of season awards, you’ll notice a trend — Rudy Gobert has swept every award category to this point. Most Improved Lottery Player? Check. Lottery Sixth Man of the Year? Check. While it could be debated whether Gobert was the most improved player...

Utah Jazz: Build The Roster Or Make A Big Move?

(Source: Streeter Lecka/Getty Images North America) By Christopher Kline: Staff Writer/Hoopstuff… As the 2015 free agency period rapidly approaches, the Utah Jazz finds themselves with a massive decision to make regarding both the short and long-term path of the franchise.

Gobert: Lottery Sixth Man of the Year

Utah’s Rudy Gobert was the most valuable sixth man on a lottery team this season. Every team searches for players that can come off the bench and contribute without a drop off in production. Even lottery teams. As The Lottery Mafia award circuit continues, it’s important to recognize the top options on the bottom-dwelling teams that, for the most part, entered the game off...

Four reasons why the Utah Jazz should hold onto Trevor Booker

The Utah Jazz have some big decisions to make this offseason. While deciding which free agents to pursue and potentially acquire is likely the most pressing issue the organization will face, making wise decisions with their current roster shouldn’t be overlooked. The Jazz currently have two free agents in Jeremy Evans and Joe Ingles as well as a team option on Trevor Booker, meaning...

Rudy Gobert: Most Improved Lottery Player

Buried on the bench for much of last season, Rudy Gobert became one of the league’s most dominant defensive big men, and helped the Utah Jazz finish the season as one of the league’s hottest teams. The rise of Rudy Gobert this season was a surprise to many around the league, though if you ask some who cover the Utah Jazz (such TLM Podcast All-Star guest Amar of SLC Dunk) you’ll...

Jazz, Joe Ingles Share Interest For New Deal

Joe Ingles is eligible to sign a $1.5 million qualifying offer for next season with the Utah Jazz. "Obviously both sides are pretty mutually interested in coming back," Ingles said.

2014-2015 Season Obituary: The Utah Jazz Improved A Great Deal… And Must Now Confront The Cutthroat Landscape In The Western Conference

In the 162-game baseball season or the 16-game NFL season, an improvement of just over 10 games cannot be compared. Such an improvement is titanic in the NFL, comparatively modest in baseball. In hockey, 10 more wins in a regular season could mean something hugely significant, but with overtime and shootout losses counting for a point, a plus-10 win differential from the previous...

Meet Robyn Hayward — Wife of Jazz Star Gordon Hayward

It’s not often that we can pump up the Utah Jazz on BC, so what better time to do it than now. The team owns a 16-8 record since the All-Star break and have become a force on the defensive end thanks to Rudy Gobert. Offensively, Gordon Hayward has carried the load with career highs in points and free throws. But it isn’t just on the court where Gordon has excelled, as he and...

A Look at the Utah Jazz and their Second-Half Leap

Part of the fun of the second half of the NBA season is seeing which young team will make the leap from potentially good to legitimate threat. This year, that team is the Utah Jazz. The Jazz have posted an 11-3 record since the All-Star break and trade deadline, including victories over Portland, San Antonio and Houston. What’s really impressive, though, is how they’re winning...

Enes Kanter and the Utah Jazz were pretty chummy for a long time, but things started deteriorating this off season when Kanter and the Jazz decided not extend his contract. The team already gave Derrick Favors an extension so they decided to see how Kanter panned out as a full-time starter. Well, it seems we have that answer now.
