  1. Ironically, Brandon Knight says he wants Kyrie Irving

    Jun 17, 2011, 12:47 PM EST

    Brandon Knight Kentucky

    Brandon Knight has been avoiding going head-to-head in workouts against the other top guards in the run-up to next week’s NBA draft. If you want to see how he looks against Kemba Walker, pull out the take of the Kentucky against UConn Final Four matchup, because you will not be seeing it in a workout.…

  2. Report: Utah Jazz open to trading Millsap, Harris

    Jun 16, 2011, 9:47 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Los Angeles Lakers, Game 2

    Everyone knows the Jazz are in “ground up rebuilding” mode, but a couple surprising names have popped up on the radar. During ESPN’s Chad Ford chat Thursday he was asked about draft day trades and mentioned the things we all expect — the Cavs to move a point guard, Daryl Morey and the Rockets to be active…

  3. Jimmer Fredette has great workout in Utah

    Jun 15, 2011, 7:55 PM EST

    Jimmer Fredette

    Former BYU sensation and current draft prospect Jimmer Fredette recently had a draft workout with his hometown Utah Jazz, and all indications are that it went great. Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune has the report: The Jimmer Fredette Circus arrived Wednesday in Salt Lake City. The show was packed; the scene was…

  4. Is Brandon Knight sliding down everyone’s draft board?

    Jun 10, 2011, 5:14 PM EST

    Brandon Knight Kentucky

    This year’s NBA draft gets interesting at No. 3. Because Cleveland will take Kyrie Irving No. 1 overall and Minnesota — or somebody, your trade window is wide open — will take Derrick Williams No. 2. But No. 3? The consensus is that the Jazz would take Kentucky point guard Brandon Knight third. They need…

  5. Jazz “undecided” about C.J. Miles’ option

    May 31, 2011, 7:10 PM EST

    MILES_CJ

    Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake Tribune has the story: The Jazz have not made a decision about picking up small forward C.J. Miles‘ 2011-12 team option worth $3.7 million. While Miles has often expressed interest in remaining with Utah — going so far as to state his desire to sign a long-term extension — the…

  6. Jazz coach Corbin says blame AAU for the Miami Heat

    May 31, 2011, 8:54 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    You heard it right after LeBron James talked about where his talents were going — other older players jumped up and said they would not have done this. They would not have willingly joined forces with other superstars to chase rings. Former NBA player and current Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin gets that. He told the…

  7. Jazz “seriously thinking” about drafting Jimmer Fredette

    May 26, 2011, 9:31 PM EST

    Texas Christian University v Brigham Young University

    You think it’s all about the basketball, what happens on the court. It’s not, basketball is a business and the Utah Jazz may be caught a little in the middle of it when it comes to the NBA draft and Jimmer Fredette. The Jazz have the No. 3 and No. 12 pick and there are…

  8. Enes Kanter is becoming key to the NBA Draft

    May 24, 2011, 12:17 PM EST

    Enes Kanter

    Suddenly, the NBA Draft is becoming the “what to do with Enes Kanter?” draft. Cleveland will take Kyrie Irving No. 1 overall. Then the drama starts. Minnesota is shopping around the No. 2 pick. Which had seemed like it will be Derrick Williams out of Arizona (a four who wants to play away from the…

  9. Fredette says the people want Jazz to draft him

    May 23, 2011, 10:45 AM EST

    Gonzaga v Brigham Young

    BYU star and Utah’s favorite son Jimmer Fredette would love to keep playing in Utah. And Fredette thinks the people of Utah want that, too, he told the Deseret News (via CBS’ Eye on Basketball). And he’s probably right about that. Fredette also is more realistic about the chances of that happening than some Jazz…

  10. Kirilenko plans to play for Russia in European Championships

    May 10, 2011, 7:33 PM EST

    Kirilenko Tattoo

    According to Brian T. Smith of the Salt Lake City Tribune, Jazz forward Andrei Kirilenko still plans to play for his country in the European Championships this summer. Kirilenko is an unrestricted free agent this summer, and he has had some injury problems in the past, but clearly playing for his country is something that…

  11. Andrei Kirilenko gets insane, awesome tattoo

    May 9, 2011, 5:41 PM EST

    Kirilenko Tattoo

    As a writer, I’m not really supposed to have favorite players. But I can’t help but love Andrei Kirilenko. When he was a young player, he played the most exciting brand of defense in the league. His play on offense is unselfish, diverse, and explosive. There have been five “5 x 5″ games since 1995,…

  12. Deron Williams to have wrist surgery, done for season

    Apr 8, 2011, 10:15 AM EST

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    We knew he was playing through wrist pain since his trade to New Jersey, but it may have been worse than we knew. Deron Williams will undergo right wrist surgery to remove bone fragments and scar tissue and is will be out the rest of the season, the team announced Friday. He has had his…

  13. Blazers have little trouble dispatching Jazz

    Apr 8, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Paul Millsap, Gerald Wallace, Wesley Matthews

    It was a workman like performance by the Blazers. Not a lot of flash, they were just the better team and they never let up. And they needed the win. It moved them half a game ahead of the Hornets for the six seed in the West. It matters — the six seed likely gets…

  14. Nets starting to pack it in: Humphries out, Williams may follow

    Apr 4, 2011, 4:05 PM EST

    NBA London 2011 -  New Jersey Nets v Toronto Raptors

    This post should be very popular in Utah. You might have surmised the New Jersey had mentally packed it in for the season by their six-game losing streak, but they are also are physically beat up and now coach Avery Johnson is talking about shutting guys down for the season. Key guys. Like Kris Humphries.…

  15. Don’t expect Jerry Sloan back on the sidelines again

    Apr 4, 2011, 10:23 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Atlanta Hawks

    Reports leaked out this weekend that Jerry Sloan would consider returning to coaching if the situation was right. Of course, that was from a source. The Salt Lake Tribune called Sloan, about as straight a shooter as has ever coached in the league, and it sure didn’t sound like he wants back in anytime soon.…

  16. The Knicks had a Melo back-up plan: Deron Williams

    Apr 2, 2011, 11:30 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    Waaaay at the bottom of a Yahoo! Sports report on Greg Oden (still injured!) and his mental state (still depressed!) and his future with the Blazers (still going to get another contract, somehow!) was a quiet little item: The Utah Jazz had a possible deal in place to send guard Deron Williams to the New…

  17. Jazz’s Al Jefferson says everything good with him, coach

    Mar 31, 2011, 12:28 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    After he was benched the entire fourth quarter a few nights ago — where he had good seats to watch Derrick Favors lead a comeback — Al Jefferson waived off reporters and was clearly frustrated. Since he didn’t even get put back in for overtime when other players did, the reasoning seemed clear. But it’s…

  18. Starters ride the pine in Utah, which makes Al Jefferson mad

    Mar 29, 2011, 12:54 PM EST

    Al Jefferson, Zach Zarba

    Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin went with the kids. He went with the hot hand. The Utah Jazz starters had trailed the Washington Wizards by as many as 12 points, so when the youth movement — led by rookie Derrick Favors and his 9 fourth quarter points on 4-of-4 shooting — made a comeback they got…

  19. Video: Emeka Okafor, Paul Millsap get prayers answered

    Mar 25, 2011, 8:32 AM EST

    Emeka Okafor Hornets

    We told you it was one wild ending in Utah with the Hornets. So much that we couldn’t contain it in just one video clip… okay, that’s not true. But it was cut in two by the people at the NBA so that’s how we give it to you. First is Emeka Okafor‘s rushed 17-foot…

  20. Hornets’ David West injures knee, leaves game in wheelchair

    Mar 25, 2011, 12:34 AM EST

    David_west

    UPDATE March 25, 12:34 am: The Hornets are officially calling this “left knee trauma” (which is a pretty scary term) but said in a release that the X-rays are negative. He will have an MRI before the team discusses the severity of the injury. Al Jefferson of the Jazz said he hopes he is wrong but…

  21. Deron William’s wrist hit again; he may sit rest of season

    Mar 19, 2011, 12:55 PM EST

    Deron Williams, Larry Sanders

    Deron Williams had two injured wrists when he was traded from Utah to New Jersey. He’s played through the pain and said it would take weeks of rest (around a month) for his wrists to get right. It is altering his shot — he is hitting just 32.7 percent of his shots since coming to the…

  22. Mehmet Okur officially done for season

    Mar 17, 2011, 9:29 AM EST

    Image (1) Okur_injured-thumb-250x166-18880.jpg for post 3835

    Mehmet Okur hasn’t really been part of the Jazz this season, having played just 13 games for them and having missed the last 22 due to a back injury. The team has now officially shut him down for the rest of the season. “His efforts and determination to return from his combined left Achilles’ surgery…

  23. Bulls coach says Carlos Boozer out a few days to a week

    Mar 10, 2011, 3:13 PM EST

    Carlos Boozer injured

    Carlos Boozer had some swelling in his ankle and will be out a few days to a week, according to Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. He is officially listed as day-to-day. That is the official line (as tweeted by K.C. Jones of the Chicago Tribune and Mike McGraw of the Daily Herald). Aggrey Sam of CSN…

  24. Video: Wednesday night game winners (all in one place)

    Mar 10, 2011, 8:14 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony

    What a night. Carmelo Anthony had the big shot to win it, Kevin Durant hit the big one to send it to overtime (where the Thunder won). Dirk Nowitzki missed his chance to joint them. The Jazz got one lucky tip in to get their win. It was a wild night of buzzer-beater finishes around…

  25. Nothing interim here, Jazz sign Tyrone Corbin to three-year deal

    Mar 3, 2011, 10:11 AM EST

    Utah Jazz v Dallas Mavericks

    When owner Greg Miller was speaking at the press conference following the resignation of Jerry Sloan, he was very clear — Tyrone Corbin was the new coach of the Jazz. Not interim coach. Just coach. Now he has put his money where his mouth is, inking Corbin to a three-year deal. Terms of the deal…
