Utah Jazz: Jeremy Evans hopes to take another step forward

Jazz forward Jeremy Evans established himself as a legitimate NBA player under former head coaches Jerry Sloan and Tyrone Corbin. Can he take the next step for Utah’s new regime?

Utah Jazz: Burke looks to improve upon rookie season

Trey Burke looked calm and unaffected by the crush of people surrounding him. He confidently chewed on a piece of gum, looked straight ahead and answered each question with the patience of an NBA veteran. He looked like a guy ready for an expanded role with the Jazz. No longer is Burke the wide-eyed rookie point guard, feeling his way through the league. Instead, Burke is coach Quin Snyder’s floor general, and one of the players looked upon to lead the way. If the Jazz are going to surprise this...

You could tell Rodney Hood was surprised. And the Utah Jazz rookie forward even admitted to the shock: He had not expected to run as much as he did in Tuesday’s training camp morning session. “It was a lot of running,” Hood said. “It reminded me more of college.” In some ways, this was new coach Quin Snyder taking control. Not so much as exerting authority, but using the time to make a point. If the Utah Jazz are going to lose games this season - and they will, because nobody has ever gone un...

Utah Jazz notes: Mixed results in first practice for Exum, Hood

There were moments of brilliance. There were moments when inexperience shined through.

There were times Utah coach Quin Snyder sat back and marveled at the potential for the future. On the other hand, there were times when each made their coach cringe. “They have a lot of talent,” Snyder said. “But they have a long way to go. They made some plays out there today, but they just ...

Monson: Jazz are confident they can win a title … no, no they aren’t

One word characterizes the Jazz at the start of their new season. It’s a surprising word, given the team’s 57 losses last year.
