Utah Jazz old men Gordon Hayward and Derrick Favors are up for contract extensions and coach Tyrone Corbin is entering the final year of his deal.
You can imagine how thrilled they were Monday to discuss how those talks are going.
“I’m completely fine with where I am” Corbin said. “I respect the organization’s side and my side in the negotiations.”
Corbin was hired by the Jazz the day Jerry Sloan resigned in February 2011 and then had a year added to the tail end of his contract making it a three-year deal. He’s gone 87-89 since replacing the Hall of Famer.
The Jazz have missed the playoffs in two of the past three postseasons and it would seemingly take an NBA miracle to return this year with the youth movement going on. Even knowing that Corbin said he’s not feeling pressure about his future employment in Utah.
