Utah Jazz’s retired numbers

Nine numbers are off-limits if you play for the Utah Jazz. The franchise has retired nine jerseys to honor different people who have had an immense impact on the organization.

There are also two separate banners hanging at Vivint Smart Home Arena, one that honors head coach Jerry Sloan and his 1,223 wins with the team and a microphone for Rod Hundley, who was a legendary broadcaster for the club.
