This offseason will be buzzing with speculation regarding the possible landing places for names like LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony. But for the Utah Jazz, this offseason will be a major step in either the right or wrong direction. As they continue to rebuild, there are five free agents that must be sought after to gain a foundation for the future. Take an in-depth look at the possibilities.
The Utah Jazz could use the leadership and veteran experience that Caron Butler brings to cultivate a winning attitude in the younger members of the team. His three-point shooting ability would be greatly valued, but his age could be a drawback for the Jazz. Either way, the Jazz are in no position to pass up a player of Butler's caliber.
With the possibility of losing Derrick Favors, the Utah Jazz must prepare to replace the big man. One place to start would be with Greg Monroe. His size and youth would create a seamless transition to the Jazz organization. His production in the scoring and rebounding categories would give the Jazz a serious boost.
Luol Deng has a calm and cool demeanor that deceptively works in his favor. Much like his personality, the Jazz could become even more deceptive with Deng on their roster. His work ethic and scoring ability are greatly needed by the Jazz and would complement Jeremy Evans greatly.
Possibly the most improved player of the year, Patty Mills would set up a lethal perimeter duo if paired with Trey Burke. Mills' explosive ability to rattle off buckets would instantly improve the Jazz offense and his improved decision making would save Utah from many unforced turnovers.
Pau Gasol has shown glimpses of his greatness in Los Angeles in the absence of Kobe Bryant. Now imagine the possibilities for him within the Utah Jazz offense. He would be the top option and the offense would run through him. This is just the situation he has been begging for since trade rumors surfaced -- not to mention the Jazz would greatly benefit from the move.
