It seems like the Utah Jazz, now entering their fourth full season because the Deron Williams trade altered the roster’s framework, should have obtained the proverbial next measure by now.
Derrick Favors ought to have morphed to an elite warden of the paint, Enes Kanter should have become a consistent starter and Gordon Hayward–he of this hefty four-year, $63 million contract–should be rapping on stardom’s door. Instead, the advancements are marginal, the advancement filled with setbacks.
Fortunately, another wave of gift is ready to overtake the one which showed up soon after the Williams deal. Frenchman Rudy Gobert will become the next Roy Hibbert, and Dante Exum may be the next celebrity of Utah.
Or, both might struggle through the very same suits and starts as Favors, Kanter and Hayward. You can never be sure.
One comforting certainty: Alec Burks is a guy. Along with I am scared by also a second: Quin Snyder.
In case Tyrone Corbin was hindering advancement, maybe his dismissal will alter things. New head coach Quin Snyder has proven some innovative touches throughout the preseason, and the Jazz are getting better looks. Though they’re still shooting roughly 19 threes per game (directly around the amount they shot last year)they rank first among all preseason squads in long-distance precision with a cool 37.1 percent.
This season is begun by this youth movement’s second wave. There’ll not be a title talk, and even the drama are a pipe dream. But there is no shortage of potential.
