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.

    Hayward as one of the league’s deadliest outside shooters??? Did I miss something? I’m a huge Hayward fan, but I never would confuse him as one of the best outside shooters in the league…

    Jefferson is a free agent, we won’t get anything in return. Why would you ask that?Hayward was one of the dark spots for the team this year! We found out that he is not a number 1 or 2 option on offense, he is a number 3 option at best. His shooting percent has fallen every year he has been in the league. He shot only 30% from 3 point range, 30%! He is a shooting guard who cannot shoot. This was the worst article I have ever read on the Jazz
