It seems like the Utah Jazz, now entering their fourth full season since the Deron Williams transaction changed the roster’s frame, should have obtained the proverbial next measure by now.
Derrick Favors should have morphed to an elite warden of the paint, Enes Kanter should have turned into a constant starter and Gordon Hayward–he of this hefty four-year, $63 million contract–should be rapping on stardom’s doorway. Instead, the improvements are marginal, the advancement filled with setbacks.
Fortunately, a different wave of talent is ready to overtake the one that showed up soon after the Williams deal. Frenchman Rudy Gobert could turn into the next Roy Hibbert, also Dante Exum could be the next celebrity of Utah.
Or, both might struggle through the suits and starts as Hayward, Kanter and Favors. You can never be certain.
1 reassuring certainty: Alec Burks is a guy. Along with also a second: Quin Snyder scares me.
In case Tyrone Corbin was hindering advancement, maybe his dismissal will change matters. New head coach Quin Snyder has shown some innovative touches throughout the preseason, and the Jazz are getting better appearances. Even though they’re still shooting roughly 19 threes per game (right around the amount they shot last year)they rank sixth among all preseason squads in long-distance accuracy with a cool 37.1 percent.
This year is begun by this youth movement’s wave. There’ll not be a name talk, and also the drama are a pipe dream. But there is no shortage of potential.
