The Utah Jazz have been making few headlines as of late, and you probably noticed that they are not a factor in the current playoffs. Their trade of Deron Williams seems inspired after the point guard's lackluster play against Miami though, and that is just one of the rumors that we will address here. You can bet that Jabari Parker's name might make an appearance as well. Enjoy.

The Golden State Warriors appear to have given up at this point, but the Jazz might still be hanging on by a thread. I do not think it is going to happen though; expect the analyst to sign with the Knicks as soon as the Conference Finals have finished.

They obviously will have a pretty high draft pick this summer, but planning for the Jazz also includes finding players who enjoy living in Utah. It is a beautiful place, but it is also an odd place for someone with an NBA lifestyle to live.

Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors both have huge potential, but they need to find a point guard who they can grow with. If they can do that, then this team could one day make a return to the NBA finals.

Well, they traded Deron Williams at the perfect moment. After Williams' struggles with the Nets this postseason, it would not surprise me to see them make a trade this summer. The Jazz, on the other hand, are still benefitting from that decision long ago.

This would be too perfect. The Mormon heads to Utah, and shows off his talent before the whole world. This would get people more excited about Jazz basketball since the days of John Stockton, and it would certainly please all the BYU Cougar fans who were bummed about Parker's college decision.
