The Utah Jazz failed to make the playoffs again this past season, but they played extremely hard and were one of the surprise teams going into the All-Star break. Their playoff hopes were alive up until the final game of the season, where Kobe Bryant scored 60 points before walking off into the sunset. It was another year ending in disappointment for Utah fans, but the future remains bright.

Free Agents:

Trevor Booker (UFA)

Who Leaves, Who Stays:

Booker has likely played his last game in Utah.

Team Needs:

With the acquisition of George Hill from Indiana, the Jazz seem to have their starting five in place. Some depth and scoring off the bench wouldn’t hurt and could edge Utah into the playoffs this upcoming year.

Possible Targets:

A possible reunion with Al Jefferson? He would be a great low post presence that would give them solid production off the bench. Arron Afflalo, Gerald Green, Evan Turner could be some nice additions to the bench as well.
