2. Which player on the Jazz will improve the most from last season to this season?

Haslam : Alec Burks – He came a long ways after the all-star break last season, and I expect an even bigger jump this season, sort of like Hayward did last year.

Newman : Alec Burks will be a completely different player this year. (Ty) Corbin isn’t holding him back anymore and with this new freedom that he will have, we’ll finally get to see what he’s really got. He’ll be much more aggressive and get more opportunities with the ball.

L. McDermott : Derrick Favors

R. McDermott : Alec Burks

Anderson : Jeremy Evans – From scrap time to bench role, I like Evans chances of impressing everyone next year. We’ll be surprised.

I’ve always been a big fan of Burks and his game. The way he can get to the rim and how shifty he is, is really fun to see. I think he could have a big year. I like Kanter too. Going from a backup to Big Al, to now being the starter, Kanter could see big numbers.
