Current Jazz Roster Status

The Utah Jazz may not have been involved in any trades, but their offseason was certainly not characterized by a lack of activity.

For starters, the Jazz lost a number of guys via free agency. This includes Ed Davis, Tony Bradley, and Emmanuel Mudiay, to name a few. Utah, however, decided to bring back veteran forward Derrick Favors, who played for the New Orleans Pelicans last season. Favors, who has virtually played his entire career in Utah, returned on a three-year deal worth $29.2 million.

The Jazz drafted a couple of rookies in Udoka Azubuike (27th) and Elija Huges (39th), but their most significant offseason move came in the form of a five-year max extension for Donovan Mitchell. The 24-year-old was named to his first All-Star squad last season, and as Utah's superstar cornerstone, the team did not hesitate to shell out a whopping $163 million for a five-year deal.

Utah followed up Mitchell's big-money deal with a $51.5 million extension for Jordan Clarkson, who was outstanding for the Jazz after a mid-season move in 2019-20. The 28-year-old has been paying early dividends for the Jazz, emerging as a front-runner as the Sixth Man of the Year early in the 2020-21 season.

The Jazz waited until the season was in full swing, but they also rewarded two-time Defensive Player of the Year Rudy Gobert with a massive $205 million contract for five years, making him one of the highest-paid big men in league history.

Gobert and Mitchell are joined by Mike Conley, the returning Bojan Bogdanovic, and Royce O'Neale in the starting unit. The trio of Clarkson, Joe Ingles, and Favors are Utah’s most important players coming off the bench.

utah jazz Team Analysis

Who Did The Jazz Recently Sign?

Utah's last transactions came in the form of two rookies and a reunion with a former frontcourt player. The Jazz brought in Derrick Favors from the New Orleans Pelicans, signing the free agent to a three-year, $29.2 million deal. The 6-foot-9 big man played nine seasons prior to moving to New Orleans last season. Favors will come in to provide some frontcourt depth for the squad. With their 27th pick in the draft, the Jazz selected Kansas senior big man Udoka Azubuike. Utah also added 6-foot-6 forward rookie Elijah Hughes via a trade deal with the Pelicans for cash considerations and a future second-rounder.

Who Did The Jazz Most Recently Trade?

The Jazz traded incoming second-year shooting guard Rayjon Tucker along with a 2027 second-round pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for cash considerations.

Tucker played 20 games for Utah last term, averaging just 3.1 points and 1.0 rebounds in 8.1 minutes per contest.

What Is The Best Jazz Roster Of All-Time?

Since being established in 1974 as the New Orleans Jazz, this franchise has never had the privilege of winning an NBA championship. The farthest they have gone was a couple of trips to the Finals in back-to-back seasons during the late 1990s. That memorable squad also happens to be the greatest Jazz roster of all time.

The 1996-97 Jazz recorded a franchise record 64 wins in the regular season. Utah landed the top seed in the West that season, and they were just five games behind the league-best Chicago Bulls, who eventually defeated the Jazz in the Finals.

This particular Utah side was led by the legendary duo of Karl Malone and John Stockton. Jeff Hornacek, Bryon Russell, and Greg Ostertag comprised the rest of the starting five. Guys like Antoine Carr, Shandon Anderson, Adam Keefe, Chris Morris, Howard Eisley, Ruben Nembhard, and Greg Foster all played their respective roles in the squad.

Jerry Sloan — the greatest coach in Jazz history — was at the helm that season.

What Is The Jazz's Salary Cap?

According to spotrac, the Jazz are estimated to have a total cap of $132.9 million.

Given how Mike Conley has already declined the early termination option on his deal for next season, the Jazz will need to pay him $34.5 million for 2020-21. Moreover, the Jazz also decided to re-sign Jordan Clarkson to $51.5 million for four years, which further complicates their cap room. Finally, they brought in Derrick Favors from the New Orleans Pelicans on a three-year deal worth $29.2 million, so as it is, the Jazz are almost certainly going to operate as an over-the-cap team next season.
