Solidness is the first step to glory and Utah Jazz It is a master franchise in that virtue. For many years now, they have had their own identity, a very remarkable competitive capacity and have established themselves as one of the teams that best circulate the ball and subordinate individual interests to collective interest. Quin Snyder wants to take the next step, the most exciting and complex, which is to become a great team to become a firm candidate for the ring. They will not have it easy in the Western Conference, but they continue to trust the block that has taken them to a great level and they have known how to move in the market in a very remarkable way.
So much so that two additions stand out above the rest and predict strong emotions as parts that complete a perfectly assembled machine: Rudy Gay and Hassan Whitesade. Having a tall forward of the talent and offensive ability of the former Spurs will be a divine gift for a Snyder who can employ many and very different players at the 3 and 4. Also, the team’s organization chart is made to play with a 5 tall and intimidating, as is Gobert, and the signing of Whiteside implies that when the Frenchman rests, the game scheme will not have to be changed since the one who was a center of reference in Miami has very similar conditions to the Frenchman.
Departures: Derrick Favors and Santi Aldama
Transfers: Rudy Gay. Hassan Whiteside, Eric Paschall and Jared Butler
There is no question that an apparent weakness for the Salt Lake City team could be the point guard position, as Mike Conley will have to lower his level at some point and an injury would leave promising rookie Jared Butler as the only serious asset. Hope is high that this veteran star and young emerging duo will come to fruition, with Conley assuming significant mentoring of the rookie. The outside game wins whole in the guard position, with Donovan Mitchell as the star player of the team, well supported by Royce O’Neal and Jordan Clarkson. European intelligence continues to win the 3, since it is assumed that Gay will play 4, alternating with Paschall. The two big centers will condition the game a lot and will be decisive.
