As the 2013-14′ NBA season has come to a close for the Utah Jazz, locker room clean out begins today. Media will be there as Jazz players empty their lockers after a season that was at times tough to watch, but at the same time, was a season that was necessary for the Jazz franchise to take a step towards building for the future.
The Jazz will have some decisions to make on some players that have options. Some guys have expressed how they would like to come back to the Jazz next season. Others have been ready to leave for months. Others haven’t really spoken much on the matter. It will be interesting to hear the comments from the players today, but I wanted to give my opinion on who I think should be here and who shouldn’t.
The Jazz will have a lot of their core back next season. Trey Burke, Alec Burks, Derrick Favors, Jeremy Evans, and Enes Kanter are all going to be back next season. John Lucas III, Malcolm Thomas, Ian Clark, Diante Garrett, and Erik Murphy all have contracts that could potentially land them back in Salt Lake City next season, depending on the Jazz front office making that decision.
The rest of the questions will be regarded around only a few of the Jazz players. Let’s dig in and see if they could be here next season or not!
