Hill Gives the Jazz An Interesting Year

Teammates (AP/Rick Bowmer) 365 days. That’s what the Utah Jazz acquired on Wednesday, at the modest cost of a mid-first round pick: an extra year of relevance. George Hill is a Jazz player to get Hayward this week, they’ll be coming at the Butler product with open checkbooks next summer, and all the Jazz can do at that point is make their own offer and hope their best player...

However, he may soon be on the fast track to reclaiming some of that old...
