Utah Jazz: Say No To Re-Signing Enes Kanter!

Source: Christian Petersen/Getty Images North America   Utah Jazz: Say No To Re-Signing Enes Kanter! By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… If the Utah Jazz would like, they can give 4th season center Enes Kanter a contract extension for 8 more days, however that would be a mistake. There is no doubting that he is an elite center talent and is very productive, but he...

How the Utah Jazz fared in NBARank

The #NBARank is a fun “one committee’s opinion” piece that starts a conversation. Sure, they’ll be wrong on some projections, overvaluing some and undervaluing others. They undervalued six or seven players on the Suns team last year, because who knew new coach Jeff Hornacek was going to lead almost all of them to career-best years? So now that’s I’ve got the emphasis...

Jazz build around young core and new coach

The Utah Jazz made sweeping changes to the team in the offseason and they started at the top. In June, the Jazz hired Quin Snyder to become the eighth coach in franchise history, replacing Tyrone Corbin, who was let go after Utah finished 25-57 last season. Snyder, coming off a year as an assistant in Atlanta, has never been a head coach at the NBA level, although as head coach at...

Video: Alec Burks breaks Kobe Bryant's ankles

I’m not sure you can blame it on Kobe’s old age, but it was a hell of a move. Alec Burks crossed over Bryant with a beautiful behind-the-back move that left one of the leagues all time great defenders frozen in his tracks. h/t Danny Hazan

For Enes Kanter, the time is now

No excuses. If there’s a theme for Jazz forward Enes Kanter heading into the regular season, that’s it. This is shaping up as Kanter’s make-or-break year in Utah, and he knows it. It’s his chance to prove to coach Quin Snyder, general manager Dennis Lindsey and the rest of the Utah Jazz brass that he’s capable of being a key piece of the franchise and a part of the future...

Blake Griffin, Trevor Booker tangle after flagrant foul (VIDEO)

Utah Jazz forward Trevor Booker fouled Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin a little too hard under the net during the third quarter of Friday's preseason game. Griffin did not appreciate it, and the two exchanged words. Then things got a bit out of hand — or more like hands-on.The fact that it was only an exhibition game probably didn't warrant Booker giving Griffin the...

All Aboard The Utah Jazz Train

Breaking News: The Utah Jazz will NOT be making the playoffs. It’s true. You know it is. I would wager Greg Miller, Dennis Lindsey, and Quin Snyder know it’s true as well. In fact, I would say that is their plan. Sure they look good in the preseason, but they are not a playoff team. Go ahead and make those summer plans, you won’t need to change them. So should we still be...

2014-15 Season Preview: Utah Jazz

Will young guards Dante Exum and Trey Burke work cohesively this season?  Last season, Utah had very minimal expectations to meet. How will the Jazz fare this year under first-year head coach Quin Snyder? For starters, Utah will hope to improve on an abysmal 2013 campaign, where the team finished 29th in total offense (95.0 points per game) and 18th in total defense (102.2 points allowed...
