Jazz got next: Utah hosts 1st summer league since 2008

This year's four-day session that begins Monday features former power Boston going through a rebuild, San Antonio a year from winning the title and a 76ers team...

Despite a quiet start to free agency, Utah Jazz will make noise in their own way

You know it’s a slow news day for the Utah Jazz when the top story on their Bleacher Report Team Stream is an article entitled, “Learn More About Jazz C Jack Cooley” (I was sure to link the article because now I know you’re curious). Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against the guy, but it’s a bit disappointing that the latest news out of Salt Lake City is a feature...

The Incredibly Unique Jeremy Evans

​ Here’s a player that’s unlikely to attract very much attention this summer: Jeremy Evans. After five seasons deep in the Utah Jazz bench unit—is there a role in the NBA further from the media spotlight?—Evans and his Dunk Contest title are hitting the free agent market.  This would be the first time that Evans has had to move since becoming a professional basketball...

Utah Jazz post-draft analysis

Although there were rumblings that the draft order was going to be shaken up rather dramatically due to trades, the 2015 NBA Draft ended up being pretty cut and dry. For the most part, teams stayed put and drafted at their original spot. There were a few surprises in the first round, such as the New York Knicks’ selection of Kristaps Porzingis, Justise Winslow falling all the way...

WATCH: 6'10" Blogger Pretends to Get Drafted By the Utah Jazz and Parties Like Crazy in NYC

This is awesome. A blogger that happens to be really, really tall decided to mess with people Thursday and pretend he was drafted by the Utah Jazz. What's crazy about the whole thing was how easy it was to do. People were taking selfies like crazy before the draft, he got on the floor of the draft, and was treated like a future superstar after the draft as the "newest member of the...

As it turns out, you don't need to be an actual NBA draftee to enjoy the night's spoils of glory.You just need a nice suit, and to be very, very tall.

Jazz draft Hanlan

It probably wasn't as high as he dreamed of going, but Olivier Hanlan's decision to declare for the NBA Draft paid off as the Utah Jazz selected him with the 41st pick overall. As a second round pick, Hanlan won't get a guaranteed contract, but he should get a fair shot. The Jazz have done a good job over the years of developing their own picks and giving them playing time.Throughout...

What the Jazz Should Do With Pick 12

The 12th pick in the NBA Draft is not usually the best place to be. It means you were not good enough to be in the playoffs but not bad enough to get a good pick. It usually means your team has a lot of needs and most likely you won’t be able to fill them with this pick. This year however the Jazz find themselves in an unusual situation. They finished 10th in the western conference...

Utah Jazz: Young and deep

Jared Woodcox just published an article on the Utah Jazz and the opportunity they have to go with a bigger lineup, even while the rest of the league is moving more and more toward small-ball. You can find that article here. I agree with his conclusion that the Jazz should not shy away from keeping Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors on the floor together most of the time, because even...

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.
