Who should start at shooting guard for the Utah Jazz?

As I wrote last week, the Utah Jazz still have some tough decisions to make in regards to finalizing their roster and deciding which of their non-guaranteed players will receive an official spot on the team.

Jazz Working On Changes To Primary Logo

The Utah Jazz are working on making changes to their logo this offseason or next. The change wouldn't take effect until the 16-17 season at the earliest. They are looking to make the Jazz note logo their primary logo and introducing a new secondary logo. The current Jazz note wordmark doesn't have "Utah" anywhere in it.

What Raul Neto and Tibor Pleiss mean for the Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz have had a quiet offseason.  A year in which $1.4 billion was handed out to players on the very first day of free agency and DeAndre Jordan was flip flopping back and forth between playing for the Dallas Mavericks and the Los Angeles Clippers, it is rather surprising to see that the Jazz really haven’t done too much.  However, just because the Jazz have been under...
