Alec Burks wants to get to the playoffs “for the city of Utah”

It’s the Summer League, so you can excuse everyone involved in the NBA to have their minds elsewhere.  Maybe that’s why we can excuse Alec Burks of the Utah Jazz for this soundbyte when he stepped into the broadcast booth last night… @awfulannouncing oh yeah. — Section 328 (@Section328) July 7, 2015 The best part about this clip is Burks’...

Utah Jazz: Develop and Conquer

Lackluster, dull, unadventurous, bland, yawner, boring; there are so many adjectives to describe 2015 NBA Free Agency, if you’re a Utah Jazz fan. If you are a fan of any other team, I have one word: It’s been a lucrative offseason for NBA free agents across the league. In Utah – it’s been business as usual. Fans are seeking immediate results.

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.

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...

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...
