Utah Jazz Around The Web

Here are some articles or clips that everyone should read around the web that are currently talking about the Utah Jazz with a link that you can click on to find what else they are talking about:

“Utah knew what it was doing when it waved goodbye to Jefferson and Millsap and facilitated the Golden State Warriors’ salary-dumping extravaganza. The Jazz were actively getting worse with the hope that they could get better later on.” Jazz prediction by Bleacher Report’s Dan Favale
