The Utah Jazz seem to be stuck in neutral this season, but that is about to change.
Though they have climbed back to above .500 with a big win over the Los Angeles Lakers, the team has been too inconsistent and has too many holes to truly build on going forward.
With a full summer to work the trade wires right around the corner, general manager Kevin O’Connor should look to build on the promising core of young talent the Jazz have picked up the last couple of seasons.
Utah has good, young players at shooting guard (Gordon Hayward and Alec Burks), power forward (Derrick Favors) and center (Enes Kanter). Paul Millsap, relatively young at only 27, is another piece that should be among the untouchables for the Jazz, but there are several players that could (and should) be cut or traded after the season.
