With the Playoffs under way there is still many players to watch that could ultimately end up in Utah next year as the Jazz will need to add at least five or six guys. Utah isn’t the place every free agent is wishing to come to, but the state has great family values which a lot of players like. Also on top of that the Jazz are a winning organization that has only missed the playoffs 4 times in 30 years. Jazz will have the money to spend but don’t expect them to sign just anyone and especially don’t expect Jazz management to add a contract if they don’t see the player as a long term guy.
Here is the list of guys that Jazz fans should keep an eye on:
Jarrett Jack(GSW)- The Jazz are in need of a point guard and not sure if management thinks that guy is Mo for the next few years. Jack has been solid and has really elevated the Warriors into the second round.
Jeff Teague(ATL)- He might not be playing after tonight if the Hawks lose but he definitely should be someone the Jazz look at in the off-season.
D.J. Augustin(IND)- Not sure if he’s a guy the Jazz go after but the guy has talent.
Patty Mills(SAS)- Doesn’t play a lot with the Spurs but he definitely has potential to start in this league somewhere.
Kyle Korver(ATL)- Who wouldn’t want Ashton Kutcher back in Utah?
Marco Belinelli(CHI)- Jazz fans know him way to well… thanks a lot Marco
Tony Allen(MEM)- Does so many things well, I doubt Memphis lets him go though.
Kevin Martin(OKC)- Still very talented, doubt he stays with OKC.
Matt Barnes(LAC)- Doesn’t really fit the Utah mold but I love his game.
Andray Blatche(BKN)- Could fill in behind Favors very well.
DeJuan Blair(SAS)- Same as Blatche, fills a need off the bench behind Favors.
