The Utah Jazz have made the postseason in six consecutive years, as they have been one of the most consistent teams in the NBA throughout the regular season. However, after multiple disappointing exits from the postseason, they have decided to shake things up.
Quin Snyder stepping down as head coach got things started, as he was replaced by Boston Celtics assistant Will Hardy. After that, just like at previous stops in his career, Danny Ainge got to work revamping the roster.
Royce O’Neale was traded to the Brooklyn Nets for a future first-round pick. Rudy Gobert was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a blockbuster trade that brought back five players, four first-round picks and one pick swap. Donovan Mitchell could be next, as rumors are swirling about the Jazz discussing him in trades.
Seemingly entering a rebuild, the Jazz are now entertaining trade offers for all of the veterans on their roster. There are plenty of them, as Utah could make numerous trades leading up to training camp in September.
