The Jazz were constructed without any leading 5 choices. Had excellent draft strikes on Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Build a great group. They have a remarkable coach in Quin Snyder.
They shouldn’t be slandered for not being great enough. That core has simply run its course. Time to retool.

Mitchell hasactually been connected in trade reports for a while now. An Eastern Conference scout informed Ric Bucher of Fox Sports in January that the Jazz were “a first-round exit from Donovan being in New York.” And now that’s a little moredetailed to endingupbeing truth.
Mitchell informed Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports in February that he was “happy ideal now” when asked about his future with the Jazz. Considering they were gotridof in the veryfirst round for the 3rd time in the last 4 seasons, his ideas might haveactually altered.
