  2. Report: Jazz in talks to give Gordon Hayward 8-figure a year extension

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:18 AM EST

    Gordon Hayward

    Apparently Utah’s front office is sold that Derrick Favors and Gordon Hayward are key parts of the future of this franchise, that their development will leap to new levels. So, no pressure Ty Corbin (a coach already considered on the hot seat). Utah is saying all that with their money. Friday we found out the…

  3. Report: Derrick Favors agrees to 4-year, $49 million contract extension with Jazz

    Oct 18, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    Derrick Favors, Matt Boland

    When the Jazz let both Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap walk in free agency without getting anything in return, that was a sign that they were ready to turn the franchise over to their young players. The large contract extension just offered and agreed to by Derrick Favors is the team putting its money where…

    Oct 16, 2013, 12:17 AM EST

    Jamaal Tinsley, Robert Sacre

    Jazz rookie Trey Burke was supposed to get the bulk of the minutes at the point guard position this season, but that was before he fractured a finger in a preseason game that required surgery and will sideline him for the next 4-12 weeks. (Burke says 4-6; his agent said 8-12) Utah is now pretty…

    Oct 15, 2013, 2:17 PM EST

    Trey Burke

    Trey Burke needs to have a conversation with his agent. Burke broke his finger over the weekend and on Monday the team announced he would need surgery, which was going to include pins in the finger. Burke’s agent told the Deseret News the rookie point guard would be out 8-12 weeks, meaning around a Christmas…

    Andre Iguodala

    Last season: The Warriors ultimately overachieved when all was said and done in 2013, getting to the second round of the playoffs and taking the eventual Western Conference champion Spurs to six games before their season was ended. For a sixth seed entering the playoffs with just 47 wins and having to go through the…

  9. Report: Timberwolves interested in Marquis Teague also

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    For a guy in Tom Thibodeau’s doghouse, Marquis Teague has a lot of suitors around the league. We passed along the report yesterday that the Jazz may have interest in Teague now that Trey Burkes is out for at least a couple months. But they are not alone, reports the Chicago Tribune — you can…

  10. UPDATE: Utah’s Trey Burke out 8-12 weeks after finger surgery

    Oct 14, 2013, 12:57 PM EST

    trey burke finger

    Trey Burke is still going to get the chance to run the Utah Jazz offense, but it likely will be 2014 before he gets the opportunity now. We got an update Monday on Burke’s broken finger from Saturday’s preseason game — he is going to need surgery to put pins in said finger. That was…

  11. With Trey Burke sidelined, are Jazz in market for point guard?

    Oct 14, 2013, 9:20 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    No sooner than I had picked Utah’s Trey Burke as my Rookie of the Year prediction, he goes and breaks a finger. Burke could be out 3-6 weeks, according to his father, but we don’t have anything official yet. Bottom line is he is missing the start of the season and could be out for…

    Utah Jazz rookie Trey Burke suffered a fractured right index finger during the first quarter of his team’s preseason loss to the Clippers on Saturday.

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

    Karl Malone

    Karl Malone is back working with the Utah Jazz as a special assistant coach — Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and the rest of the young Jazz front line are now learning the tricks of the Mailman. And Malone is focused on that — at least until next month and his annual hunting trip, he told…

    Sep 26, 2013, 9:41 PM EST

    Trey Burke

    Trey Burke was selected with the ninth overall pick in this summer’s draft, but was traded that night from the Timberwolves to the Jazz after Minnesota felt they could get better value by trading down to the 14th slot. With eight players going ahead of him, Burke wouldn’t appear to be the favorite to take…

    Gordon Hayward has developed into a solid wing player for the Utah Jazz, and has shown improvement in each of his last two seasons since entering the league in 2010.

    John Wall will be with the Wizards for five more seasons, making $80 million. Larry Sanders will be with Milwaukee for four more years, $44 million. Those are the first two extensions to the rookie deals out of the 2010 draft. They were both expected and both got done early — teams have until Oct.…

    Kelly Olynyk

    We already told you that when asked during the rookie photo shoot who their favorite player in the league was, the majority of incoming NBA players said Kobe Bryant. But those rookies to be were asked a lot more, too — and it was the Celtics Kelly Olynyk and the Trail Blazers’ C.J. McCollum who…

    Portland Trail Blazers

    Portland has a LaMarcus Aldridge issue to deal with — there are reports he is unhappy and his people have come to the Blazers proposing trades. Aldridge has denied all of this. Of course, if you’re an unhappy player it is best to have your agent and others do this kind of legwork while you…
