Randy Foye Could be All That's Left for Utah Jazz

There are a ton of unrestricted free agents on the Utah Jazz heading into the offseason, and you can safely assume that the roster will have some major turnover. Utah needs to keep some players around, and while I don’t see them being able to keep their high-profile free agents, a player like Randy Foye would be good to keep.

Foye was the only player on the roster who played in all 82 games this season while starting 72 of those. He did average 10.9 points a game but would be better in a backup role on the roster. It isn’t going to be easy to find a new starting point guard because the team’s other option, Mo Williams, is also a free agent. I think the Jazz will draft a guard this summer and then sign Foye again to be that player’s backup. Utah could be in major trouble next season after going 43-39 because of all the moving pieces.

The Jazz are in need of so many different things that it is hard to pinpoint just one. Utah was awful around the perimeter this season outside of Foye shooting 41% from three-point range. I would have to believe that the team can find some better shooters at guard. I will be watching with great interest to see what the Jazz decide to do, but they need to keep some of their players. It may not be the most popular idea, but keeping Foye might be a solid start to this offseason if they want to keep any of their minor free agents.
