Quin Snyder Changes Everything

When the Jazz decided Ty Corbin was not a part of their future it led to a search of what will help the team grow faster and more complete.  The outcome:  The hiring of Quin Snyder.  Quin is great with building up and working with players on an individual basis.

This means that the players will be given another chance moving forward and will also mean that they are going to see if each player fits what Quin will try to do.  The quick pace that Quin wants to play along with the defensive and pass first team that Lindsey wants will prove crucial for moving forward.

Enes Kanter will need to improve greatly this year as both of his weaknesses are what Lindsey wants on a team.  Quin will need to work the most with Kanter out of all the players or I can see Kanter not being a part of the team in the future.

The style of play that I think Quin will play will maximize Hayward and Burks into the players they want to be.  Both excel out in the open and if the Jazz draft Aaron Gordon or trade up and get Wiggins it will just be one more great piece for Snyder.

The Jazz were at their best last season when they were out in the open and really gave teams a fit when it was not a half court game.  In the half court game, Snyder is a get in the offense quick and get a shot early type mentality.  That is a big difference from Ty and his pass it around where the Jazz on many plays would throw up a contested shot 22 seconds into the shot clock.

The thing I see helping Quin Snyder is he is acquiring players that finally got a year of just them learning their identities last year.  This was eye opening for players on what they can and can’t do along with what they can work on.  The Jazz hired the right guy in my opinion and should be in for great years ahead.  Just remember that if someone gets traded at the draft or in free agency that most likely they are not what Quin  (and obviously Dennis Lindsey) believes are good for this team.
