The Utah Jazz found themselves in a rebuilding situation this year, deciding to tear down and re-build the franchise with fresh, young players. So what must the young Jazz do to join the postseason party next season? Let's find out.
Tyron Corbin is out as the head coach, leaving the Jazz to find his replacement this summer. One option may be Mike Woodson, but I doubt Woodson would want to join a rebuilding project. Regardless, finding a head coach will be priority No. 1 for the Jazz this summer.
Favors took one more giant leap into stardom this season, averaging career highs in points and rebounds. If he wants to earn a nice contract extension, Favors is going to have to make the next leap into stardom next season.
Jefferson has already made his feelings known that he wants to play for a contender next year, so the team is going to have to unload him. The question for the Jazz is what will they get in return?
Hayward was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dark season for the Jazz, averaging a career high in points per game and sealing his reputation as one of the league's deadliest outside shooters. Hayward will be a restricted free agent this summer, and the Jazz should match any contract thrown at him in the offseason. He is that important.
Burke had an up and down rookie season, but his skill and talent indicates that he is ready to lead a more talented Jazz into the postseason. He needs to if he wants a nice contract extension after next season.
