Utah's Internal Improvement

With July ending, the NBA free agency period is about over. While there are still a few notable names on the market, most teams have filled out their rosters for the upcoming season after giving out well over $2 billion combined in total contracts.

Jazz PG Trey Burke: "I'm as hungry as I've ever been"

Yes, Jim Nantz once worked as a Utah Jazz analyst alongside Hot Rod Hundley

At AA we love finding classic clips that show something unique from the rich history of sports broadcasting.  So we were amazed when Classic TV Sports unearthed this rare footage of Jim Nantz working a game as a basketball analyst, and not a play by play man.

As I wrote last week, the Utah Jazz still have some tough decisions to make in regards to finalizing their roster and deciding which of their non-guaranteed players will receive an official spot on the team.

The Utah Jazz are working on making changes to their logo this offseason or next. The change wouldn't take effect until the 16-17 season at the earliest.
