Utah Jazz waive Ian Clark, sign Jack Cooley, Chris Johnson to multi-year deals

Jazz have now made 90 individual moves since July 1st, 2014 -- with draft night still to come! To be frank, the Utah Jazz keep making small moves, and have been doing so all season long. If you could be critical of the front office during the John Stockton and Karl Malone days you could say that they sat on their hands quite a bit. Sure, they had some great teams, but they didn't do a lot once they had their star players. The current GM Dennis Lindsey may have some young stars on his team now, but he's not one to stop working.

Warriors PA announcer prefers to be heard, not seen

With the Warriors rolling down the stretch, The Chronicle will offer an added layer of coverage, taking readers behind the scenes.
