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?

Jazz build around young core and new coach

Five Ways the Utah Jazz Have Improved

That 25-57 season is behind the Utah Jazz. It was a season of frustration, disappointment, tanking-not-tanking, a yeoman season to do what needed to be done to set up the franchise for the future. And so far, one thing they’ve done is get even younger. Lest we forget, Richard Jefferson was 3rd on the team in total minutes played last year. No one over 30 is going to crack the top...
