The Utah Jazz have been one of the most consistent NBA teams over the past 20 years. While much of that has to do with the brilliant ownership of the late Larry Miller and the old-school coaching of Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan, a lot of it can also be attributed to the types of players this organization brings in.
Salt Lake City isn't exactly the kind of place that NBA superstars are drawn to, so it can be difficult for the Jazz to pull in solid free agents. Much of the team must be assembled through risky draft picks and trades. Considering that fact, the Jazz should be lauded for always putting a decent team on the floor.
In addition, the Jazz, have been known to be masters of the draft; often bringing in players that aren't expected to do much and turn them into solid NBA players.
For example, you could call their draft picks of Karl Malone and John Stockton some of the biggest draft steals of all time. Both of them turned out to be better players than anyone expected.
In recent years, the Jazz have continued to build up good talent. They are a few years away from contention, but the future looks especially bright for this young team.
This year, they are stocked with talent, so here's my rankings of the current Jazz roster.
