Will the Utah Jazz look to bring in veterans in the offseason?

No matter how many veterans they add in the offseason, the youth movement is on in Salt Lake City.

The Utah Jazz may have ended their 2011-12 NBA season on a sour note as they were swept by the San Antonio Spurs. However, the Jazz should not feel bad as they had a great season where they made a late rally into the postseason surprising many in the process.

Head coach Tyrone Corbin had the difficult task of finding a lineup that would help the Jazz compete in the Western Conference this season and at the same time, allow for his younger players to gain some valuable experience.

However, whenever a team goes through a youth movement, some of the veteran players become unhappy as their minutes become sporadic and find themselves on the sidelines when they feel like they deserve to be on the basketball court contributing.

Veterans Raja Bell and C.J. Miles called out Corbin as they were not happy to see their minutes getting cut with Bell claiming that Corbin was “unprofessional” and hopes to play elsewhere come next season.

Miles on the other hand, said that Corbin did not communicate well with the team and him and could look to play elsewhere next season.

Bell came into Salt Lake City most likely knowing that the Jazz are undergoing a youth movement and that their veteran players would likely be playing scattered minutes (outside of Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson).

At the end of the day, the future looks very bright in Utah which have a lot of talent that can only become better such as big man Derrick Favors.

Any veteran player that signs in Utah should come into town understanding that they are somewhat expendable.
